Scandi Energy - Waste to Energy Concept.
What is gasification?
Gasification doesn’t actually burn the municipal solid waste, instead It breaks the molecules apart with heat in absence of air, and then recombines them to form synthetic gases (SYNGAS).
Syngas composed primarily of Hydrogen – H2, Carbon monoxide- CO, Carbon dioxide – CO2 and methane – CH4.
After the syngas is cleaned, it can be used in gas turbines, internal combustion engines or boilers to produce heat or generate electricity. Can also be converted to bio fuel or bio gas.
Gas comprises Hydrogen, Methane, Ethylene, Carbon-monoxide and carbon-dioxide
The gas has no Nitrogen, NOx, SOx or H2S
Syngas can be used to fuel motors or boilers
Syngas is also a precursor for diesel, paraffin, ethanol, methanol and others
