Gasification is a process that converts carbonaceous materials contained in the municipal waste into methane, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide by reacting at high temperatures with controlled amount of oxygen without combustion. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas.
We provide automated pre-treatment systems to prepare several waste streams into a high caloric Refuge Derived Fuel (RDF). With our advanced and unique thermal treatment technology RDF is used to produce syngas with which we generate electricity and heat using our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit.
This unique two-stage gasification process ensures the maximum energy output from RDF and utilizes heat from the flue gases to generate steam whilst keeping extremely low emission values and a minimum production of non-hazardous bottom ash.
These relatively small waste to energy plants are designed to generate approximately 5 MW per line of electricity or heat. These are ideal for clients with specific fuel or waste requirements and specific needs regarding decentral heat and power production for smaller cities or remote areas that are further from centres of larger cities and lack suitable infrastructure.
Waste streams for energy conversion by gasification are:
