Production of syngas: generation of power and DME synthesis
MetadataShow full item record
Refuse derived fuel (RDF) from municipal solid waste was used as the feedstock into a plasma gasifier in a two-step production process. Syngas, produced by the gasifier, was used as an energy source in a steam turbine that produced electricity. After losing heat, the syngas was then sent into a one-step synthesis process where it was converted into methanol and dimethyl ether (DME) for sale. DME is used as an alternative to diesel fuel and Methanol is often used as a source for other products.
