Integrated gasification and gas cleanup system for C&D waste
We are developing an integrated feedstock preparation, gasification and gas cleanup process to convert construction and demolition debris and other solid wastes of high community impact into cost-competitive bioenergy products such as electricity, hydrogen and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Our research to date has proven the concept and is now engaged in scaling up our proprietary techniques to gasify C&D waste containing high amounts of arsenic, boron, chromium, and lead, and sequester those toxic heavy metals away from the syngas, as well as to immobilize the metals to reducing leaching into the environment from the ash.
