Gasification is a process that converts organic, or fossil fuel based carbonaceous materials into a synthetic gas. This is achieved by reacting the waste material at high temperatures (>700 °C), without combustion, with a controlled amount of oxygen via Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The resulting gas mixture is called syngas and is itself a fuel. The power derived from syngas is considered to be a source of renewable energy if the gasified compounds are obtained from biomass or residual non recyclable fossil waste. The process uses EGR which is exhaust gas that has already been combusted and fed directly back into the system. The advantage with re cycling the exhaust gas directly into the gasifier is the resultant ultra environmentally clean emissions, allowing clean gas production from otherwise problematic fuels. This clean gas is combusted at 1100 Degs C then further cooled to 600 Degs C and again cooled to 50 Degs C. This exhaust gas at 50 Degs C is ultra clean. The CTEC system HAS already exceeded the European emissions requirement.
The CTEC gasification conversion process is ground breaking.
NON RECYCLABLE WASTE can still present a source of energy. The energy utilisation is possible and with the appropriate integrated technology from CTEC it can be done in a environmentally friendly way.
The CTEC system combusts NON RECYCLABLE WASTE through a special gasification process which generates USEABLE ELECTRICITY and HOT WATER for public use or industry. The by-product is a USABLE RECYCLABLE ASH. This proven process removes waste in an ideal rational way rather than sending it to pure incineration or landfill thus dramatically reducing the volume or green house gasses. The full system can integrate into an existing small building with no visible nasty fumes exiting with nearly zero emissions.
CTEC system mainly comprises of a continuous feed gasification conversion chamber; particular cyclone; highly efficient waste heat exchanger; provision for gas clean up injection, catalytic converter; bag and carbon filters; water treatment filter; blast air coolers; a Siemens compact pre designed turbine and remotely controlled electronics.
