Vaporised Waste: The fuel of the future?!!


Could vaporising waste provide a solution to two of humanity's biggest environmental problems? Companies around the world are trying to turn household waste into clean energy. An article in the New Scientist by Phil McKenna is optimistic about Gasification as a promising solution.

Gasification of waste materials yields more energy per volume of trash than incineration. Gasification, and its cousin plasma gasification, involves heating waste to a high temperature inside a sealed chamber. It produces syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen.

The report says that the syngas can be converted to ethanol and synthetic diesel at costs that can compete with petroleum-based equivalents.
