  • Plasma gasification: Harnessing the power of lightning

    Plasma gasification is both a high-tech solution to the problem of waste management and a source of renewable power. The technology has great potential, but can it move from the fringes to the mainstream? The name "plasma gasification" conjures up images of men in lab coats late at night, investigating a far-flung corner of science that is light years away from commercial readiness. In reality it ...


  • 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 ...

  • Extraction of fuel from municipality solid wastes using an updraft gasifier

    In Bangladesh, cities are confronted with the problem of how to dispose large quantities of municipal solid waste (MSW). Gasification is a process that uses heat, pressure and steam to convert materials (MSW) directly into a gas composed primarily of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The main objectives of this paper are: 1) to study gasification processes; 2) to design, fabrication and performance ...

  • Who Can Benefit from PWR`s Plasma Gasification? What are the Applications?

    Plasma Waste Recycling, Inc"s unique and patent-pending Plasma Arc Gasification process gasifies, rather than incinerates, waste into energy. Using a 100% oxygen free process and the extreme high temperatures created through a blend of tried-and-true technologies utilizing a non-incinerating plasma arc method, all types of waste can be broken down into three primary outputs. The majority of ...


  • Regulation of Oil-Bearing Hazardous Secondary Materials From the Petroleum Refining Industry Processed in a Gasification System to Produce Synthesis Gas

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is revising its hazardous waste management regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to further promote the environmentally sound recycling of oil-bearing hazardous secondary materials generated by the petroleum refining industry. Specifically, EPA is amending an existing exclusion from the definition of solid ...

  • Making MGP Wastes Beneficial

    More than 11 billion gallons of coal tar were generated at MGP sites in the United States from 1816 to 1947. The types and quantities of waste discharged to surface waters from MGPs vary from site to site, and the disposition of several billion gallons is unknown and remains unaccounted for. Numerous locations in the United States have sediments and soils contaminated with wastes generated from ...
