Measuring Gases Produced by Waste Gasification to Improve Control and Efficiency

Sep 10 2019

Waste gasification enables the transfer of waste to energy. The waste material can be used as fuel to create heat, electricity or other chemical products. During the decomposition process, gaseous products, known as syngas (a combination of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and some carbon dioxide) are produced.

In traditional incineration methods heat and oxygen are used to destroy waste products. However, during the waste gasification process, whilst high temperatures are still required, no oxygen is used. This results in fewer pollutants and potential toxic ashes. The resulting syngas is a valuable fuel and can be used for steam or electricity production or in some cases, as chemical feedstock in the synthesis of more valuable products.

In this article Edinburgh Sensors discusses the measurement of gases produced by waste gasification to improve control and efficiency.
