  • Gasification - The Waste-To-Energy Solution

    Introduction Each year, Americans generate about 250 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste, or MSW—about 4.3 pounds per person per day. This includes “trash” such as kitchen waste, electronics, light bulbs, plastics, used tires and old paint, and yard waste. Despite significant increases in recycling and energy recovery, only about one-third of the total MSW is ...

  • Performance analysis of a co-gasifier for organic waste in agriculture

    Background:Agricultural waste has been proposed as an alternative energy resource to meet fossil fuel crisis, green house emission, and other environmental impacts worldwide. In Iran, rice husk and bagasse are main resources of biomass which can be used to produce syngas. This paper deals with a simplified model of combined gasification of coal and biomass processes considering chemical ...

  • Recycling Zinc From Municipal Solid Waste

    Results from experiments carried out in laboratory and on a 0.5 MW test facility are presented. It was shown that Zn can be substantially extracted from waste using different techniques. In the pilot experiments the Zn behavior was investigated with radioactive tracers. It was shown that by changing the operation conditions from combustion to gasification the amount of evaporated Zn can be ...

  • Florida Waste-To-Energy Plant Has Composting Officials Fired Up

    Plans for a renewable energy facility in central Florida which will burn horse stall bedding as well as other wastes is raising concerns among officials from composting companies in the region, who are questioning everything from the cost-effectiveness of the multimillion dollar plant to whether it will actually help alleviate groundwater pollution problems. “The proposed gasification plant is a ...

  • Amit Kumar and Gregory Stephanopoulos on turning waste gases into biofuels

    Research conducted by Kumar, along with a team led by Professor Greg Stephanopoulos, looks to the future of emissions reduction and recycling. Original story at MIT News One of the most promising ways to combat carbon emissions is to transform those emissions into ...

  • FAQ About Plasma Arc Gasfication Process from Plasma Waste Recycling, Inc (PWR)

    What is Municipal Solid Waste? Municipal solid waste (MSW)—more commonly known as trash or garbage—consists of everyday items such as product packaging, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, bottles, food scraps, newspapers, appliances, paint and batteries. It does not contain industrial, hazardous, or construction waste. Since 1980, the total annual volume of MSW generated in the U.S. has ...


  • New methods of hydrogen production are being deployed which are helping increase the efficiency of biomass facilities, creating high value clean energy from sources of waste

    Biomass can easily be converted to hydrogen using decade’s matured, highly reliable technology that is simply applied in non-standard ways. In large scale anaerobic digesters and other biogas projects (including landfill gas) you can maximize the utility of the natural gas product by converting it to high purity hydrogen fuel. In modern gasification plants, operators will effectively be ...

  • Evaluation of the energetic potential of sewage sludge by characterization of its organic composition

    The composition of sewage sludge and, thus, its energetic potential is influenced by wastewater and wastewater treatment processes. Higher or lower heating values (HHV or LHV) are decisive factors for the incineration/gasification/pyrolysis of sewage sludge. The HHV is analyzed with a bomb calorimeter and converted to the LHV. It is also possible to calculate the heating value via chemical ...
