Syngas Production - Financially Viable by Ecoreps
Syngas is the synthetic gas derived from gasification and pyrolysis. This syngas (or producer gas) is volatile making it an ideal fuel source.
Syngas is made up of carbon monoxide, and hydrogen (85%) with smaller amounts of carbon dioxide and methane. Syngas has a high calorific value so it can be used as a fuel to generate electricity or steam. Syngas may also be used as a basic chemical in the petrochemical industry.
Syngas has around half of the energy of natural gas, and can be combusted to produce thermal energy for use in steam and electricity production.
The TRU converts organic biomass, or waste matter into syngas, and carbon char. The unique process of the TRU carefully diverts this syngas through a transition zone where it is blended with air, and then blown through the thermal oxidizer, where it is combusted. This immediate combustion of the syngas eliminates most of the noxious elements, resulting in clean emissions.
The TRU 4000 running standard MSW is capable of producing over 2750Kw of electricity every hour 24/7
