Waste to Energy

Biomass Gasification

Waste to Energy

Waste Gasification process can convert materials normally considered waste to energy and valuable products. Thousands of tons of a potential source of energy are thrown away every day.

Most of the waste that we discard from our homes and businesses every day Non-recyclable plastics, construction debris, used tires, household trash, and sewage  contains energy. Gasification technology can unleash the energy in all of this waste into electric power, substitute natural gas, chemicals, biogas, transportation fuels, and fertilizers.

Waste to Energy

Waste Gasification process help convert waste to energy

  • Reduces need for landfill space
  • Decreases methane emissions
  • Reduces risk of groundwater contamination from landfills
  • Extracts useable energy from waste that can be used to produce high value products
  • Enhances existing recycling programs
  • Reduces use of virgin materials needed fro producing valuable products.
  • Reduces transportation costs for waste that no longer needs to be shipped hundreds of miles for disposal
  • Reduces use of fossil fuels which contribute to green house effects.
  • Reducing global warming

 

Waste to clean fuel

Biogas production is a natural process. Biogas is produced by the degradation of organic matter in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic digestion).

Efficient reduction of greenhouse gases

Biomethane is produced from biomass, is therefore a renewable energy resource and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.

Biomethane has a very wide range of biomass feedstock

Biomethane can be produced via two different processes – digestion and thermal gasification.

Thermal gasification technique allows even waste-wood from forests or agriculture to be used to produce biomethane.

Biogas requires upgrading to a high level of methane concentration – biomethane – to be used in cars or to be injected into the natural gas grid. Compared to other alternative fuels, biomethane benefits from the extensive availability of biomass feedstock sources.

Sustainable waste treatment and agriculture

Production of biogas from waste may be a key to a more sustainable waste treatment system.
