Waste To Energy Through Landfill Gasification

Waste To Energy Through Landfill Gasification

Submitted by • April 21, 2014 www.retechengineering.com

Gasification is the thermal decomposition of organic materials at high temperatures in a limited oxygen environment. The process requires an initial heat supply to produce a combination of combustible gases like methane, hydrocarbons, hydrogen and carbon monoxide. This combination of gases is called ‘syngas’ which can be stored or combusted as it is produced. It is through gasification that biomass to be converted effectively. The most advanced form of gasification can provide for carbon capture which is one way of reducing carbon emissions in successfully combating climate change.
