THE PROCESS PRODUCTS
The extreme heat in the plasma gasification process disintegrates the treated waste into a mixture of basic molecular elements called Syngas.
After undergoing cleaning, The syngas is a mixture of abundant energy that contains hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. The caloric value of the synthetic gas product is about 25-40% of that of natural gas and can be used as an energy resource in a variety of ways, the most common of which is the generation of electricity and heat.
In addition, syngas can be used as a catalyst in catalytic reactions and produce liquid fuels.
The processes of cleaning the syngas make it react similar to natural gas. The Syngas then burns in gas turbine or engines to generate energy, or alternatively undergoes refining and conversion to liquid fuel.
After undergoing the process of cleaning, expected emissions from energy facilities that burn Syngas will be essentially similar to emissions from facilities that burn natural gas.
The waste entering the process contains a combination of organic and inorganic elements. The inorganic components of the waste are dissolved in the high temperatures of the reactor and flow out at the bottom of the reactor as a non-hazardous inert material known as Slag.
Due to its solid and inert properties, the slag by-product can be used as an aggregate in the building industry.
