SSF cofiring is at odds with separate waste collection
False. The production of SSF is not at odds with separate waste collection as SSF is produced later, primarily from the share of properly treated unsorted waste.
Furthermore, in order to be used as fuel in cement plants, SSF must not contain materials such as glass, aluminum or plastic containing high values of chlorine (e.g. PVC), which could contribute to clogging certain parts of the plant during the production process. These materials therefore remain destined for recovery.
The use of this fraction of unsorted waste in the production of SSF allows a clear minimization of the amount of waste sent to landfills and enhances materials that are no longer recyclable.
