Waste to Energy Gasification is an answer for two of the biggest problems of our times: eliminating waste and producing clean energy.
Humanity generates more than 2 billion tons of solid municipality waste in a year. While the 3 Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – are important to slow down the waste production, they don’t give a total solution for the problem of landfills. The landfills are constantly growing and causing serious pollution in our oceans, lands and atmosphere. The liberating methane is 84 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2 and accelerating global warming.
By eliminating landfills and using waste to generate electricity we solve two burning problems simultaneously. At Floating Particle we work with plasma pyrolysis, which we consider as the most effective gasification process in order to produce energy from waste.
How does it work?
- We use preconditioned waste to feed the reactor
- Meanwhile, Nitrogen is injected into the system
- During the process purified biochar is produced
- It is a Net 0 air separation which means that the air (O2 & N2) is injected into the fuel cells which results in depleted air – the Nitrogen returns to the cycle, feeding the gasification process
- Finally, the produced hydrogen is electrochemically converted into electricity through the fuel cells
What are the benefits?
Our gasification process has numerous benefits which make it stand out on the market
- It only needs waste, air, and a very small amount of water to enter the system
- All the tar from the gasification is eliminated and further converted into electricity
- The system is self-sufficient
- The outcome of gasification is biochar and hydrogen
- The generated hydrogen is converted into electricity
- Produces close to 0 emissions
Floating Particle’s waste to energy gasification process is optimized, regarding the waste’s quality in a small territory. It results in a simple, adaptive system which is affordable and sustainable, a great solution for villages and developing countries equally.
By using our methodology, we offer a self-sufficient answer for waste management problems. By reducing the size of landfills, we can scale down methane emission, air, soil, and water contamination while producing clean energy from hydrogen.
