Based on the matrices introduced, the plant may or may not produce electricity.
Based on the matrices introduced, the system will be able to produce or not transformable thermal energy, through optional ORC systems, into electricity.
Ignoring until the Feasibility Study the real nature of the fluid matrices and therefore their real energy potential, productively, we believe plausible only a condition of balance between what is produced and what is consumed, limiting ourselves to the production of electricity using the syngas in an internal combustion engine. adequate power.
The size of the plant makes the adoption of gas or steam turbines not convenient. Gas microturbines, to date, have lower yields than endothermic engines and significantly higher costs.
Professor Louis J. Circeo of Georgia Tech University, the greatest living expert in plasma torch technology, claims that a ton of MSW placed in a plasma torch provides over 800kWh using an internal combustion engine. We conservatively reduce this value to 550kWh.
The prepared safety and treatment systems can consume about half of this production.
Obviously, these consumptions will vary according to use: by introducing a greater quantity of fluids, the extremely energy-consuming solids treatment systems will not be activated.
