What is Gasification?
Gasification is a technology that has been widely used in commercial applications for more than 50 years. Its a method to extract energy from materials by converting carbonaceous materials into synthesis gas (syngas). This syngas is itself a fuel or it can be used as a renewable-energy resource.
Gasifiers Do Not Incinerate
Gasifiers operate at 3,000-4,000°F, using a thermo-chemical conversion process that does not include enough O2 for the materials to burn. Instead the materials are broken down at the molecular level and then reformed into reusable products. Our technology does not produce toxic or waste bi-products. Additionally, incineration produces high-levels of CO2, SOx, NOx which are harmful to the environment. Our gasification technology does not.
Why Should We Gasify Waste?
Our gasification process is the best solution for waste conversion. Not only can our technology convert 30,000 tons of waste per day in a single unit, its also versatile and profitable. Additionally, it has a dramatically lower carbon footprint and can be used to create green energy and transportation fuels. In contrast to landfills, which produce enormous amounts of greenhouse gases, leach contaminants into soil and water supplies, and continue to multiply due to increased waste streams. Every ton of waste that is gasified saves the world from the equivalent of more than two tons of greenhouse gases that would be produced in a landfill.
