Gasification turns waste into an energy-rich fuel gas by heating the waste under controlled conditions.
Gasification involves the conversion of waste in a high temperature (between 400C and 800C), low oxygen environment to produce a synthesis gas (a mixture of methane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide) and a char residue.
The synthesis gas can be fed directly into engines to produce electricity, combusted with air to make steam which is then used to produce electricity, or sold as a gas fuel similar to natural gas.
The gasification process occurs in a gasifier - an enclosed vessel under controlled conditions within a building.
