Gasification Technology

Gasification Technology is still in its infancy, with much to understand.

On this page you will find links to a few web sites that will shed some light on the gasification technology and its applications

The Gasification Technologies Council (GTC) promotes a better understanding of the role that gasification can play in providing the power, chemical, refining, and waste management industries with economically competitive and environmentally conscious technology options to produce electricity, fuels, chemicals, fertilizers, substitute natural gas, and hydrogen from a variety of feedstocks, including biomass and waste.

Gasification Technology

For industries and end users looking to make use of non-traditional resources in a sustainable, stable, and environmentally-friendly fashion,  gasification technology offers multiple paths for producing recoverable thermal energy, generating baseload power, addressing waste issues, all while meeting the most stringent efficiency, safety, quality, and environmental objectives.

Targeted Outputs:

  • Syngas or Producer Gas
  • Electric Power
  • Steam
  • Recovered Heat
  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
  • Biochar

Gasification technology is a profitable fit for many industrial applications. Here are just a few:

  • bio-refineries, including traditional corn-to-ethanol and cellulosic ethanol plants
  • waste management facilities and landfills
  • coal boiler re-powering
  • pulp and paper mills
  • food processors
  • pellet plants
  • poultry processing facilities
  • panel board plants
  • independent power producers
  • timber mills
  • waste water treatment plants
