  • Gasification vs. Incineration

    Increasingly, gasification is being used to convert municipal solid waste, or MSW, into valuable forms of energy. While this type of waste has been burned, or incinerated, for decades to create heat and electricity, the gasification process represents significant advances over incineration. In order to understand the advantages of gasification when compared to incineration, it's important to understand the significant differences between the two processes: Incineration literally means to render to ash. Incineration uses MSW as a fuel, burning it with high volumes of air to form carbon dioxide and heat. In a waste-to-energy plant that uses incineration, these hot gases are used to make steam, which is then used to generate electricity. Gasification converts MSW to a usable synthesis gas, ...

  • Importing garbage for energy is good business for Sweden

    Everyone produces waste, and the Swedes are no different. It’s what they do with it that is unusual. Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. But even with this amount of domestic waste, the country’s 32 waste-to energy (WTE) incineration plants can handle even more. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries.

Danish firms Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects and Gottlieb Paludan Architects have won a competition to design the world's largest waste-to-energy power plant in China. Proposed for the mountainous region on the outskirts of Shenzhen, the waste-to-energy plant is expected to incinerate 5,000 tonnes of rubbish per day – approximately one third of the waste generated by the city's 20 million inhabitants each year. According to the architects, the facility will "utilise the most advanced technology in waste incineration and power generation". The huge circular building will boast a 66,000-square-metre roof, two thirds of which will be covered with photovoltaic panels, allowing the building to generate its own sustainable supply of energy. It will also feature a series of visitor facilities, including a looping walkway that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the plant, before leading up to a rooftop viewing platform. "The project firstly aims to provide a clean, simple and modern technical facility to deal with the city's growing waste," explained architect Chris Hardie, head of Schmidt Hammer Lassen's Shanghai office. "At the same time it aims to educate visitors to this growing waste challenge by taking them on an elevated walkway tour of the plant that ends with a 1.5-kilometre panoramic view of both the surrounding mountains and the 66,000-square-metre roofscape that will be geared to producing actual renewable energy," he told Dezeen. The circular structure will encompass the entire plant, including auxiliary buildings – the aim was to keep the facility as compact as possible. The entrance will be a snaking ramp that starts from a landscaped park and winds up between a pair of smokestacks.

The major thrust of EDCI Clean Energy Solutions is the conversion of waste and other carbonaceous materials into synthesis gas, liquid fuels and/or electricity. Depending upon the specific solution needed, EDCI works to establish a sound partnership that provides the right combination of cutting-edge technologies and expert project management. The advantages of using EDCI Clean Energy Solutions to convert carbonaceous materials and hydrocarbons into synthesis gas, liquid fuels and/or electricity are that: - Nothing hazardous ever goes into the ground, and practically no pollutants go into the air (emissions are well below all California EPA requirements). Through a proprietary "closed loop" system using super-low NOx burners and advanced thermal distillation technology developed by ACTi, our processes provide clean energy solutions that are more efficient and environmentally-friendly than any competitor's. - Processing of variable waste/organic streams through standard and proprietary processes (e.g. automated recycling of metals, autoclaving of municipal solid waste, etc.), provide for a much greater efficiency in the clean energy process, including the storage of gasification feedstock and produced fuels, as well as the concurrent gasification of multiple carbonaceous materials (e.g. coal, municipal solid waste, agricultural and animal waste, sewage sludge, used tires, waste plastics, medical waste, etc.) - Outputs are (1) synthesis gas, or syn-gas (CO+H2), which is either chemically converted to synthetic carbon-based fuels, or combusted in engines or turbines to generate electrical power using other available technologies, and (2) residue (i.e. any dirt, rocks, glass or ash not consumed in the gasification process) which can be used as a fertilizer additive, or converted into a superior concrete-like building material by mixing it with a geopolymer chemical binder. - Synthetic sulfur-free # 2 diesel fuel, other liquid fuels including ethanol, and/or electricity is produced below current market value, and with the capacity to be generated in different proportions and times depending upon specific energy needs. - Modular engineering, built-in redundancy of key modules, and common maintenance and replacement parts, limit down-time and allow nearly 100% energy production capacity. EDCI Clean Energy Solutions for municipal solid waste involve initial processing with proprietary technologies from trusted strategic partners to sterilize the waste stream while separating recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals, resulting in a sterile and automatically sorted homogeneous feedstock for subsequent gasification. Following initial processing as needed for the specific carbonaceous material at hand, EDCI Clean Energy Solutions further utilize proprietary gasification and gas-to-liquefaction technologies from ACTi. While many new technologies in the recycling field have emerged with increases in the cost of petroleum products and concerns over global warming, ACTi processes by comparison are considered more versatile in that they convert numerous waste streams at a much lower capital and operating cost. Notably, ACTi processes also have direct commercial and operating experience with tires, medical waste, agricultural waste, MSW, coal, and waste plastic. ACTi manufactures an advanced commercial thermal distillation system (see figure) to convert various waste materials as noted to highly valuable commodities. ACTi's thermal distillation process was designed to specifically address the short-comings of previous technologies and involves the thermal decomposition of organic matter at temperatures sufficient to gasify organic material under a slight vacuum and in the absence of oxygen. As the temperature increases, vapors flow out of the reaction chamber and are further processed into syn-gas which then undergoes a gas-to-liquefaction process that creates synthetic carbon-based fuel as a clean energy resource. Alternatively, the cleaned syn-gas produced by the system can be combusted directly in a turbine or engine to produce electricity. ACTi's advanced recycling technology consists of a "closed loop" reaction chamber heated with super-low NOx burners. ACTi's patented super-low NOx burner system is considered the most efficient in the world for low NOx emissions. The entire system is designed so that no raw gases can be released to the atmosphere.

Increasingly, gasification is being used to convert municipal solid waste, or MSW, into valuable forms of energy. While this type of waste has been burned, or incinerated, for decades to create heat and electricity, the gasification process represents significant advances over incineration. In order to understand the advantages of gasification when compared to incineration, it's important to understand the significant differences between the two processes: Incineration literally means to render to ash. Incineration uses MSW as a fuel, burning it with high volumes of air to form carbon dioxide and heat. In a waste-to-energy plant that uses incineration, these hot gases are used to make steam, which is then used to generate electricity. Gasification converts MSW to a usable synthesis gas, or syngas. It is the production of this syngas which makes gasification so different from incineration. In the gasification process, the MSW is not a fuel, but a feedstock for a high temperature chemical conversion process. In the gasifier, the MSW reacts with little or no oxygen, breaking down the feedstock into simple molecules and converting them into syngas. Instead of making just heat and electricity, as is done in a waste-to-energy plant using incineration, the syngas produced by gasification can be turned into higher valuable commercial products such as transportation fuels, chemicals, and fertilizers.

Everyone produces waste, and the Swedes are no different. It’s what they do with it that is unusual. Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. But even with this amount of domestic waste, the country’s 32 waste-to energy (WTE) incineration plants can handle even more. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries.

The Waste to Energy plant, Ghazipur set up by IL&FS Environment on a Public Private Partnership framework is a path breaking initiative. A Euro norm compliant, first plant in the Country, it provides a scientific solution to address the dumping of waste at Ghazipur. The plant has a built capability to process 2000 tons per day and generate 12 MW of Green Power to address East Delhi’s growing waste. To mainstream waste picker families, IL&FS is providing skill training in addition to providing jobs in the plant. This support through GULMEHER is also helping them with functional literacy and financial inclusion. These efforts have transformed the lives of the ragpickers and converted them to skilled entrepreneurs and provided a replicable model for rehabilitating ragpickers across dumpsites in the Country.

Confused about what to text him? Just copy and paste any of these 9 texts - http://bit.ly/1EpQNbm *** Do you have energy but don't know how to apply it? In this week's video I decided to go on a rant about something completely random that I'd never intended to make a video about. It's a bit different from my normal videos, but one that I hope drives you to put greater emphasis on relationships and producing things of value for the people around you. *** Website: http://howtogettheguy.com Facebook: https://facebook.com/CoachMatthewHussey Twitter: https://twitter.com/matthewhussey Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/user/gettheguyteam

BRIQUETTING FROM AGRO-WASTE Duration: 03:45 mts. The agricultural sector dominates India's economy. It also generates large quantities of waste. Most of which is burnt, and some part used directly in low-efficiency furnaces. In Tamil Nadu, a company manufactures briquettes from the locally available agro-waste. Which is sold as a substitute for coal, lignite and firewood to restaurants, tea gardens and industry.
