The EnviroThermal fixed bed gasifier is an innovative design that utilises a revolutionary multidirectional airflow. The system is currently being rigorously tested under University conditions and a small demonstration prototype will soon be available in Poole, Dorset.
The gasification process converts the feed stock into carbon monoxide and hydrogen by reacting raw material at high temperatures with a controlled amount of oxygen. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas and is itself a fuel.
In the past, large scale gasifiers have suffered from instability of the reaction bed, however EnviroThermal’s multi-directional airflow overcomes all these problems, ensuring our gasifier can be used for a variety of applications, including the effective disposal of sludge from anaerobic digestion systems.
Gasification is recognised as an advanced form of thermal treatment. This attracts renewable obligation credits and will doubtless play a pivotal role in the future of sustainable waste recycling.
