Mid UK Recycling - "The UKs Largest Independent SRF Producer"


As a UK leader in waste management services, Mid UK Recycling has a long history of producing alternative fuels such as SRF.

Our fuels products & management services are tailored to the needs of end users.

SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) is a solid fuel prepared to demanding UK & EU standards from non hazardous wastes, to be used as an energy source.

With limited fossil fuel resources combined with the fight against climate change, Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) represent a real alternative to traditional fuels.

Mainly composed of non-hazardous waste paper, cardboard, wood and pieces of plastic resulting from household and general industrial waste residues this material represents an energy resource for a growing number of energy users (industries and local authorities) in the UK & across Europe.

Preparation of alternative fuel

Mid UK Recycling operate four large Mechanical Recovery Treatment Plants.

The purpose of MRT plants is to stabilise, dry and separate waste constituents from commercial & industrial waste residues, extracting any remaining recyclables, and produce a high quality solid recovered fuel (SRF)

MID UK Recycling presently supplies its SRF products into industrial thermal applications, CHP plants, cement works and large industrial furnaces.

MID UK Recycling Push to Recover Even More waste

"Nothing wasted" approach today's waste management.

Fuel specifications & Reduced CO2 emissions

The quality of SRF is established on an individual basis by contractual relationship with the end user. Mid UK Recycling can guarantee the substitute fuels' "biomass" particle size, net CV, chorine content etc to its user clients.

Mid UK Recyclings impressive expertise and experience allows us to offer invaluable consultancy on special fuel blends and new innovative SRF products.

Typically made from paper, cardboard or wood, this is a renewable energy source, whose combustion is recognized as neutral in terms of CO2 emissions.

SRF produced to CEN/343 ANAS standards

"Turning waste into an energy resource"


SRFs a source of energy that's not subject to the price volatility of fossil fuels and are eligible for various incentive plans, such as green certificates, Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) in the United Kingdom. SRFs also help to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Burning of the so-called "biogenic" fraction of SRF, rich in organic carbon, has a neutral impact on climate change.
  • Preserve natural resources. Our Mechanical Recovery Treatment (MRT) plants are designed to extract all recyclables materials first then recover the remaining residual waste to produce a high spec fuels. SRF is used to power various heat treatment plants, including cement factories, heating plants, industrial furnaces, etc.
  • Contribution to preservation of primary resources.
  • Contribution to reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The so-called "biogenous" fraction of SRF has a neutral impact on climate change during

Innovation and development.

Mid UK Recycling undertakes research work with waste producers, the energy generation sector, and the environment agency with the aim of improving all requirements and constraints.
