The produced gas (syngas) are sent to a post combustor and subsequently to an external ducts of the drying / pyro / gasification system.
These ducts will give up the heat developed during the post-combustion to the reactor inside them so supporting thermally the various steps of the process.
Said produced gas (syngas) will be sent, after having been properly washed and purified, to the turbine and / or to the endothermic engines. In the absence of a plasma torch it is not possible to reach the zero emissions level but, in any case, these will be below the levels allowed by the various national regulations.
The use of syngas will produce thermal kW and electric kW. Part of the produced electricity will be used for the process (about 15%), the other could be used to reduce the costs of other energy-consuming processes within the plant or to create a district heating network or it can be sold.
Thermal energy can in turn be partially transformed into electricity.
Once the gasification process has taken place, the only resulting waste product is the ash, on average about 5-10% of the matrix entering the gasifiers.
The part of the ash treated in the plasma torch will be transformed into a material that can be destined for useful uses without environmental risks.
The ash will be analyzed to evaluate its possible capacity as potential soil improvers or usability as building materials.
