Hydrogen Production

Uses of Hydrogen

Common Uses of Hydrogen Hydrogen Production is primarily used to create water. Hydrogen gas can be used for metallic ore reduction. Chemical industries also use it for hydrochloric acid production. The same hydrogen gas is required for atomic hydrogen welding (AHW). Electrical generators use the gas as a rotor coolant. The element is relied upon […]

Gasification Benefits

Gasification benefits are numerous, here are a list of questions and answers that will shed some light on this energy source: Q: Why gasify? A: It’s a solution that can take a problem feedstock such as waste, and convert it into valuable products (e.g. chemicals, fuels, heat, fertilisers, electricity etc) Q: Is the feedstock burnt? […]

Plasma Gasification

Plasma Assisted Gasification Plasma gasification is a relativity new technology that can break waste down to 1/300th of its original size by using ionized gases to produce temperatures greater than 3 times the surface temperature of the sun. This process can safely deal with almost all forms of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes by breaking down […]

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 […]

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 […]
