An alternative fuel is a properly sorted and processed wastes that have sufficient energy value for specific needs (RDF). Such fuels are obtained from processed industrial and municipal waste.
Over the next several years, the Polish district heating sector, almost three quarters of whose fuel mix is based on hard coal, should radically change its heat generation sources, among others in favour of renewable energy sources.
A large part of the heating companies are faced with the choice of technology, which will enable them to become an efficient energy source thanks to cogeneration.
In the heating sector the fuel structure is changing and some entities could and have decided to use renewable energy sources. Many municipal heating plants think about the most beneficial solution for them, consider modernization of the installation to burn biomass or other alternative fuels.
