Gasification

leave a comment »

Gasification is a process that converts carbon-containing materials, such as coal, petroleum coke, municipal solid waste, biomass or bitumen, into a synthesis gas, (syngas), composed primarily of carbon monoxide and hydrogen.

Gasification occurs when a carbon-containing feedstock is exposed to steam at elevated temperatures and/or pressures in the presence of controlled amounts of air or oxygen.  Syngas can be used as a fuel to generate electricity or steam, or used as a basic chemical building block in the petrochemical and refining industries.

Alter Nrg uses gasification to convert low-value feedstocks into environmentally-responsible high-value energy products through the development of innovative projects.
