Plagazi’s trade is to take possession of waste and convert it into marketable synthetic natural gas. The Plagazi process short summary: The Plagazi® Process for hydrogen production is a unique method for producing pure hydrogen from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Auto Shredder Residue (ASR), car tires, Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), industrial waste, wood chips or mixtures thereof. The technique exposes the waste to very high temperatures > 3 000 degrees C in a plasma generator (Westinghouse Plasma) and converts it into gases and simple atoms. The gas from the plasma generator is transformed into pure hydrogen (99.999%) in three sequent cleaning steps. The system is entirely enclosed and gives off no environmentally hazardous residues. The residues from the process consist of inert slag, suitable for the construction industry, recyclable metals and liquid CO2.
The conceptual design for the gasification plant is a 40 tons /hour (corresponding to approx. 350,000 tons waste per annum) energy-from-waste facility.
The gasification technology, which is the industry leading technology in commercial operation worldwide, has been working since 2002.
The facility will be designed to treat mainly a mix of ASR and municipal solid waste (MSW) from the city or nearby areas.
Gate Fee (tipping fee) Revenue, Gas Output Revenue and sales of process by-products (metals and vitrified slag).
A plasma gasification plant produces vitrified slag as a by-product. 100% of the slag from the plant may be used as aggregate concrete products.
The Plasma Gasification provides the lowest greenhouse gas emissions of the evaluated systems for waste disposal
