Secondary fuels

Definition:

Secondary fuels are used "twice" in the true sense of the word. Most objects are thrown away following primary usage. If they are used as energy sources (…), however, they replace primary fuels such as coal or oil. Today, new technologies and concepts can therefore turn waste into a [more] environmentally-friendly material which prevents depletion of resources.
