Accordant Energy® is a fuel technology company offering an innovative, renewable fuel—ReEngineered Feedstock—to enable cleaner coal power generation with improved environmental performance.
Accordant Energy is proud to offer ReEngineered Feedstock (ReEF), a patented, state-of-the-art technology that is focused on multi-pollutant emission control. ReEF can be seamlessly co-fired with coal to specifically target the reduction of sulfur, nitric oxide, hydrogen chloride, mercury, and other air pollutants. This technology transforms the non-recyclable fibers and plastics from municipal solid waste (MSW) streams into a fuel substitute that actively reduces air emissions while also lowering the total amount of coal used in a power plant.
We partner with electric utilities, municipalities and waste management companies to maximize the recovery of recyclables from mixed waste streams and aggressively reduce landfill disposal of these materials. Waste that cannot be recycled is converted to ReEF, and processed with the addition of virgin materials, such as sorbents, using Accordant Energy’s patented manufacturing process (APM).
ReEF is customized for the needs of each electric utility to ensure optimal co-firing combustion and air pollution control. With recognition from the U.S. EPA as a non-waste fuel under the Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials (NHSM) regulations (40 CFR Part 241), ReEF can augment existing air pollution control assets and offer an efficient path to environmental compliance.
ReEF is the product of two core innovations: an advanced solid waste recycling and recovery process and a patented fuel production technology. From the waste stream, Accordant Energy removes all marketable recyclables, non-combustibles, and prohibitive contaminants, and sorts the remaining fibers and plastics into a chemically consistent base material. On average, this process can lower the amount of the waste stream that is sent to landfills by 70%.
