converting organic waste Applications

  • Hazardous and Special Wastes

    Gasplasma® uses a DC Plasma Converter to crack impurities from the raw syngas. The intense heat and strong UV light produced by the Plasma Arc neutralises hazardous wastes, such as sludge and oils, creosote and other preservatives and chemicals. Gasplasma® transforms the organic parts of the waste into a hydrogen-rich syngas that is used to generate clean, renewable power and renewable heat. The second stage Plasma Converter makes hazardous elements inert and all the inorganic materials are vitrified into an environmentally benign product called Plasmarok®.

  • Organic Rankine Cycles for Biomass Combustion

    The Triogen ORC can be used with biomass combustion, for example sawdust, chips, bark and treated wood; and other biomasses, such as straw, rice, husks and bio-sludge, as well as other high organic-content waste. The Triogen ORC will be connected to the combustor. The Triogen ORC converts the flue gasses from the combustor into electricity.

  • Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
