Pyrolysis and Gasification

Pyrolysis and Gasification

Pyrolysis and Gasification are alternative methods that have been previously used, and available to be used for converting organic wastes and by-products into fuel and chemicals.

The basic principle of these and TCP is based on the breakdown of polymeric materials at high temperature.

Pyrolysis Process

Pyrolysis process is defined as heating material in oxygen-free environment. Hot fuel gas (a low quality oil) and carbon black is produced.

Pyrolysis processes decompose polymer chains at high tempereature like TCP.

Difference between processes

The difference between TCP and Gasification processes is that TCP can be applied with high moisture materials, without product sorting, short chain of chemical ingredients in fuel products based on chemical formation and low temperatures of gaseous products. Also, significantly higher quality oil is produced in TCP.

Distribution of inputs inside the slurry is the basis of converting waste in the TCP and water is a hydrogen source for depolymerization and helps in chemical reformation. This is considered as a key factor to the formation products and to easily separable products from water.
