Development of Environmentally Friendly Technology for Municipal Solid Waste Gasification
Period 2004-2005
Services Market Research
Location Ukraine
Partners Ukraine

Financing: The Science and Technology Centre in Ukraine (STCU)

Project summary: The technology for gasification of biomass and municipal solid waste (MSW) with minimal impact upon environment was developed and investigated.

Main parameters of the experimental unit:

Nominal capacity: 50 kW
Fuel: wood residues, MSW, peat
Composition of dry producer gas: СО-29%, Н2-38%, СН4-7%, СО2-25%, other substances — up to 1%

Main advantages: Middle heating value producer gas (12-13 MJ/Nm3) is produced. The gas can be used as fuel including possibility of power production. Gasificstion and fine cleaning of producer gas allows to avoid dioxins formation.

Innovativeness: The entire process is originally separated into two zones: gasification of biomass/MSW and combustion of charcoal. Inert material as a heat carrier circulates between the two zones.
