Waste to Energy

Municipal Solid Waste to Electricity Through Gasification

The system offered here for the commercial implementation of a waste-to-energy strategy is based upon the following process stages:

  • waste sorting
  • waste pre-treatment
  • gasification
  • gas treatment
  • energy generation

Waste is taken in at the reception centre and rough-sorted with a front-end loader. Large objects are removed for disposal separately. The remainder of the waste passes to a sorting facility, the extent of which is very much a site-specific design decision. The feedstock waste for the gasifier is then shredded and dried, ready for loading into the gasifier. Dust and tars are removed as part of the system design, prior to the passage of syngas to an internal combustion engine. The process is kept deliberately simple in order to ensure its viability.

Key features

  • from the reception hall to electricity - a turnkey solution
  • reduce feedstock waste to fifteen percent of the feedstock volume
  • ensure intert waste only passes to landfill
  • converts a liability into an asset
  • simple and reliable

Waste Management

The management of domestic waste streams is currently undergoing fundamental change in many countries around the world. Amongst one of the prime options for consideration is that of recovering energy from municipal solid waste at the point of receipt, prior to disposal, whilst at the same time reducing waste stream volumes.

The Organics gasification system has been designed with a view to the minimum of complexity. This approach means that systems are robust and can be operated without a need for highly-skilled technicians.

Gasification

Gasification is achieved by thermally degrading organic materials in the absence of adequate air to support full combustion. Emissions from the Organics systems equate to those from an internal combustion engine.

Advantages

  • Immediate conversion of biomass Waste to Energy
  • Waste reduction to ash for landfilling
  • Integrated management options to combined wet wastes and dry wastes into a single energy park
  • The absence of excess air in the thermal reduction process prevents the formation of harmful pollutant gases
  • Plant configuration allows a wide range of waste types to be passed through the thermal reactor

The Organics gasification system is designed to accept a broad range of organic waste consistencies. This is an essential pre-requisite for systems designed to gasify Municipal Solid Waste. Disposal by means of gasification will convert Waste to Energy and reduce disposal requirements.
