Syngas, created through the gasification of waste, contains the building blocks for the production of liquid fuels such as diesel, jet fuel, ethanol, methanol and propanol.
Coskata, the owner of technology that converts syngas to ethanol completed a successful multi-year demonstration program at the Westinghouse Plasma’s demonstration center, where syngas was created from biomass and municipal solid waste. Coskata converted that syngas to ethanol.
The Alter NRG Plasma Gasification Solution can be used in a number of other applications including:
- Destruction of hazardous waste – without the production of energy
- Destruction of incinerator ash – rendering it inert and safe for the environment
