Plasma gasification

Technology for plasma gasification of all types of waste has reached a maturity level where Kanyo can roll it out with confidence to deserving communities. This process significantly reduces waste volume whilst releasing a huge amount of energy as well as syngas.

KANKYO is the System Engineering lead in co-operation with specialist suppliers of well-proven equipment and technology Basically , we can take waste like Medical Waste, Household Waste, Waste Biomass, Commercial Waste, Industrial Waste, Tyres etc. and produce Energy & Fuels.

Benefits of this technology

MSW gasification faces a number of challenges. Because MSW can contain such a wide variety of materials, the materials may need to be sorted to eliminate those items that cannot be readily gasified or that would harm the gasification equipment. In addition, the gasification system may need to be designed to handle a variety of different materials because these materials may be gasified at different rates.

Further, one of the important advantages of gasification is that the syngas can be cleaned of contaminants prior to its use, eliminating many of the types of after-the-fact (post-combustion) emission control systems required by incineration plants. Technologies used in waste gasification include conventional gasification systems, as well as plasma arc gasification.

Whether generated from conventional gasification or from plasma gasification, the syngas can be used in reciprocating engines or turbines to generate electricity or further processed to produce substitute natural gas, chemicals, fertilizers or transportation fuels, such as ethanol.

Gasification Does Not Reduce Recycling Rates
Gasification does not compete with recycling. In fact, it enhances recycling programs. Materials can and should be recycled and conservation should be encouraged.

However, many materials, such as metals and glass, must be removed from the MSW stream before it is fed into the gasifier. Pre-gasification feedstock processing systems are added up-front to accomplish the extraction of metals, glass and inorganic materials, resulting in the increased recycling and utilization of materials. In addition, a wide range of plastics cannot be recycled or cannot be recycled any further, and would otherwise end up in a landfill. Such plastics are an excellent, high energy feedstock for gasification.

In addition, not all cities or towns are set up to collect and process recycled materials. And, as populations grow, the amount of waste generated grows. So even as recycling rates increase, the amount of waste is increasing at a greater rate. All of this waste represents lost energy and economic value – which gasification can capture.
