Biomass Energy

To many people, the most familiar forms of renewable energy are the wind and the sun. But biomass (plant material and animal waste) is the oldest source of renewable energy, used since our ancestors learned the secret of fire. Biomass is a fancy name for material from plants and animals. Some kinds of biomass can […]

Waste Management

Plasma gasification technology in the US is developing fast, and could be the perfect way to divert Municipal Solid waste from landfill and produce valuable by-products. Plasma gasification is an emerging technology which can process landfill waste to extract commodity recyclables and convert carbon-based materials into fuels. It can form an integral component in a system […]

Waste To Energy

Waste to energy uses trash as a fuel for power generation. Gasification converts any carbon-containing material into a synthesis gas (syngas). The syngas is a combustible gas mixture, sometimes known as ‘producer gas’, typically contains carbon monoxide, hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and methane. The syngas has a relatively low calorific value, ranging from 100 to 300 […]

How Plasma Converters Work

Remember the scene in Back to the Future where Doc Brown throws garbage into Mr. Fusion, powering his time machine? While household fusion is still in the realm of science fiction, we might be closer than you think to generating electricity for our homes using trash, and plasma waste converters will do the job. At […]

Reverse Osmosis

It is important to protect drinking water from contamination for public health, economic, and environmental reasons.  Contamination of water has many effects that we tend to ignore. Water is necessary to all living things. It makes up approximately 70% of the human body’s weight and plays a role in its functions, such as digestion and […]

Gasification Applications And Products

  Carbon monoxide and hydrogen, the major components of syngas, are the basic building blocks of a number of other products, such as fuels, chemicals, fertilizers and substitute natural gas.In addition, a gasification plant can be designed to produce more than one product at a time (co-production or “polygeneration”), such as electricity and chemicals, (for […]
