  • Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR) destruction in a plasma gasification reactor

    Test results on Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR), or car fluff, demonstrated destruction efficiency and safe conversion to synthesis gas and a glass residue, in a plasma gasification system. The synthesis gas consists primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide in the range between 20 and 22 vol-% respectively, or 45 and 55 vol-% dry basis, when corrected for nitrogen. In dry reforming operation, ...

  • Transformations of syngas derived from landfilled wastes using the Gasplasma process

    Abstract The Gasplasma advanced conversion technology is able to efficiently produce a clean syngas and an environmentally stable vitrified product from historically landfilled materials. The syngas is rich in hydrogen and carbon monoxide and possesses high calorific value, and low residual tar levels. While this syngas has traditionally been considered only as a fuel source for power ...
