Transcript

  • 1. Alternative Energy Term: Gasification
  • 2. Gasification
    • Gasification is a process that converts carbonaceous materials into a gas mixture called synthesis gas or Syngas and is itself a fuel.
    • Gasification is a method for extracting energy from many different types of organic materials
  • 3. Gasification
    • Made from any Biomass or carbon source
    • Carbon material CO & H (syngas)
    • Syngas may be burned directly in internal combustion engines
    • Syngas can be used to produce methanol and hydrogen, or converted into synthetic fuel.
    Steam
  • 4. Gasification vs Combustion
    • Combustion oxidizes materials in the presence of O 2 to produce heat, H 2 0 and CO 2
    • Gasification restricts O 2 and produces CO and H 2 . Gasification operates at high temperatures & pressure (2,600°F & 1000psi)
    • The gas is then burnt to produce energy and maintain the temperature of the reaction
  • 5. Coal Gasification
    • Widely used to create electricity
    • Clean air act and emission restrictions are ending most burning of coal for electricity so now it is gasified
  • 6. Wood Gasification
    • Old technology replaced by cheap oil
    • Seeing a resurgence
  • 7. Byproducts
    • Slag
    • Ash
