Utilization of Waste for Green Energy Production

Who could have thought that the solid wastes people generate everyday could be fueling,biosphere machine to produce green energy? Yes, it’s really possible with today’s technology. Just take for example the biosphere gasification technology developed and invented by Dr. Chris McCormack. It’s a gasification process which destroys wastes by means of thermal decomposition to convert them into green energy. In this process 7{1fe46aa43da29c99d93faa41b47403026427a797bc631975a851231d4d124355} of the solid wastes are converted into inert ash or pozzolanic ash while the remaining 93{1fe46aa43da29c99d93faa41b47403026427a797bc631975a851231d4d124355} turns into mixed gas, referred to as syngas or synthesis gas. Then this syngas is delivered via a venturi to a steam boiler / turbine combination without separation for power generation.

The wastes that can be converted into green energy using this technology includes municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, forestry surpluses or wastes, industrial waste, medical waste materials, and traditional fossil fuels. Imagine eliminating all these kinds of wastes to generate green energy for the whole world? It’s an ingenious idea indeed.

Moreover, the Biosphere Gasification Process differs from traditional gasification that does not separate or purify syngas. Rather, in Biosphere Process™ there’s a direct heat transfer which significantly enhances the efficiency of the system compared to other technologies. This technology is also considered to be very ecological since it is done under controlled oxygen thereby does not emit harmful gases to the atmosphere. It has passed all European and US atmospheric emissions standards including the latest US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations.

Many countries including the Philippines have already adopted the technology for their waste management system. In the Philippines wherein solid wastes have been their major problems for years now, believes that this technology will eventually end their dilemma on solid wastes.
