Gasification VS incineration

Gasification technology and plasma technology are significantly different and cleaner than incineration.

Our technology is completely different from the one on which are based any traditional incinerators.

Both in the gasifiers and in the plasma torches the matrices (waste) are used to produce synthesis gas and, therefore, do not represent the "fuel" of the machinery as in the case of incinerators: the matrices are therefore a raw material used for a process high temperature chemical conversion where the matter is broken down into simple molecules.

The syngas that is formed from the simple molecules mentioned above will then also be used to produce energy or can easily be transformed into high value commercial products (methanol, biodiesel, chemicals, aviation fuel, etc.).

It is precisely the high temperature that is released during the gasification or with the plasma treatment that allows to definitively decompose the larger molecules such as tar, plastics, etc. The syngas obtained can also be further "cleaned" and "washed", an operation that is most necessary if it is chosen to use it in an internal combustion engine whose exhaust gases will also end up in the plasma torch cycle.

The lack or absence of oxygen combined with high temperatures and the absence of combustion inhibits the creation of toxic dioxins, furans or nitrogen oxides or even ammonia while the high temperature of the torch destroys the dioxins already present.

The abrupt cooling of process temperatures prevents the reformation of dioxins and furans.

Even the ash produced during the gasification and the lava produced with the plasma torch are completely different from any waste products created with an incineration process: in both cases, the waste to be sent to landfills is the raw material useful for a new process.

From all this it is evident that both the gasification technology and, even more so, the plasma torch technology are significantly different and cleaner than incineration.
