Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / Combustion in CFB boilers
English term or phrase: compost
Primary fuel RDF
....

Secondary fuel ***compost***
Pending further analysis. ***Compost*** may be tested by the customer in limited amounts after the guarantee period. Later test runs may serve to assess under which circumstances ***compost*** may be co-combusted in the boiler. No guarantees are given for ***compost*** firing.

Che io sappia il compost non è certo mandato agli inceneritori, anzi, è un'alternativa all'incenerimento. Da qui il mio dubbio: compost inglese è davvero compost italiano qui o intendono altro?

Explanation:
Ciao, a me pare che tu abbia ragione a pensare che sia "compost"...

Guarda un po' cosa ho trovato per "RDF":

"Refuse-derived fuel (RDF) or solid recovered fuel/ specified recovered fuel (SRF) is a fuel produced by shredding municipal solid waste (MSW) or steam pressure treating in an autoclave. RDF consists largely of organic components of municipal waste such as plastics and ***biodegradable waste***." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refuse_derived_fuel )

Ma non capisco peche` tu faccia riferimento agli inceneritori... Bruciando questo "compost" si ottiene energia. Probabilmente e` usato in campo industriale (non mi ci vedo a bruciare "compost" nel caminetto!). Quindi credo che non venga semplicemente incenerito, ma che venga si` bruciato, ma, appunto, come combustibile.

Magari qualche altro Proziano puo` dare il suo parere, ma secondo me intendono questo...

HTH :o)
