Waste Thermal Treatments

The constantly increasing solid waste amounts pose dramatic threats to the environment which can be reduced by thermochemically converted into clean syngas (CO and H2) fuel via gasification/pyrolysis processes. Gasification and pyrolysis are being investigated for various waste streams including municipal and industrial solid wastes.
