Gasification technology is a proven technology
Because of the fact that it was used back in the nineteenth century to produce town gas out of coal.
|Production of town gas from the mid-19th century. Replaced by natural gas from the 1950s onwards.
Forgotten for some time due to the emergence of natural gas, it is now applied in the production of electricity from waste and biomass.
In fact, gasification is a thermal process which consists of heating primarily organic elements (waste, biomass , etc.) in an atmosphere without air to produce a gas made up of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, called synthesis gas or syngas.
Whereas coal is a stable and dry fuel, waste and biomass are variable, and the gas obtained is less homogeneous. The refining system developed by CHO-Power solves this problem.
The benefit of gasification is that it transfers the energy potential from the solid fuel in the form of gas, and generates more electricity through the use of efficient means of production, such as gas turbines and engines:
Using the gasification process, more electricity is produced for the same amount of fuel.
