  26. 26. Biomass Gasification<br />Gasifier<br />biomass<br />Syngas (CO + H₂)<br />heat<br />Ash<br />oxygen<br />Syngas Combustion<br />Combustion Chamber<br />syngas<br />Turbine and Generator<br />electricity<br />steam<br />heat<br />oxygen<br />flu gases<br />
  27. 27. Benefits of Biomass Gasification<br /><ul><li> Gasification of biomass cleaner than gasification of mixed waste
  28. 28. Production of syngas which is flexible for future requirements, for electricity and heat, or fuel production
  29. 29. Biomass a renewable fuel – carbon neutral
  30. 30. Ability to produce our own biofuel from waste rather than displacing food production in the developing world
  31. 31. Ability to generate our own power with minimal pollution, displacing fossil fuels from abroad
  32. 32. Avoidance of landfill for contaminated biomass</li></li></ul><li>Plasma Arc<br />Plasma Arc<br />flue filters & ash<br />vitrified glass / plasma rock<br />inorganicnon-recyclables<br />metals<br />hydrochloric acid<br />electricity<br />sodium sulphite<br />
  33. 33. Benefits of Plasma Process<br /><ul><li> No ash or other non-recyclable materials to landfill
  34. 34. Production of a useful inert aggregate
  35. 35. Retrieval of metals from non-recyclable products
