Waste To Energy

Plasma torches can be used to extract hydrogen gas from general waste by a process known as plasma gasification. This process involves heating the waste to extremely high temperatures using a plasma torch, which breaks down the organic matter in the waste into its constituent elements. The hydrogen bonds are the lightest held and decompose at the lower temperature periphery. These solutions leverage our expertise in pyrolysis.

During the plasma gasification process, the organic matter in the waste is converted into a gas known as syngas, which is a mixture of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and other gases. The syngas is then cooled and cleaned to remove impurities, and the hydrogen gas is separated out for use as a fuel or for other purposes.

Plasma gasification has several advantages compared to other waste treatment technologies, including:

  • High efficiency: Plasma gasification can convert a wide range of waste materials into valuable products, including hydrogen gas, with high efficiency.
  • Low emissions: Plasma gasification produces relatively low emissions compared to other waste treatment technologies, which makes it a more environmentally friendly option.
  • Compatible with renewable energy: Our electrified processes can not only consume renewable energy for net zero goals but can operate as a demand-responsive application on a renewable energy grid.
  • Energy recovery: Plasma gasification can recover energy from waste materials, which can be used to generate electricity or heat

Overall, plasma gasification is a promising technology for extracting hydrogen gas from general waste and for converting waste materials into valuable products. It has the potential to play a role in reducing the environmental impacts of waste and in increasing the sustainability of waste management practices.
