Workshop & Excursion: Waste Gasification

08. - 09. May 2018
ECN, Westerduinweg 3, 1755 LE Petten, NL

As organic materials like biomass or waste are gasified, the chemical process creates a clean syngas, which can be used in CHP production and/or for production of biofuels and/or chemicals. Compared to other waste-to-energy methods like burning, or incineration, the gasification process allows the syngas to be cleaned of contaminants prior to its use. Creating syngas through gasification is almost like closing the circle, or closing the loop, on waste’s lifecycle.
