The facility will be the first of its kind in the UK, combining fluidised bed
gasification technology and refuse derived fuel (RDF) processed by the MRF.
Samples of each size fraction were combusted in air for 24 hours at different combustion temperatures ranging from 650[degrees]C to 950[degrees]C in a muffle furnace covering the range of temperatures encountered in fluidised bed

The system, the idea of group chairman Chris Clayton, uses advanced fluidised bed
technology to remove sand cores from castings, clean the sand for re-use and provide a means of heat treatment for the same castings.
