The act or process of converting into gas.
The process in which a solid fuel is converted into a gas; also known as pyrolitic distillation or pyrolysis. Production of a clean fuel gas makes a wide variety of power options available.
A multi-stage process for producing electricity from a fuel using both the expansion of gas in gas turbogenerators and expansion of steam in steam turbogenerators. In this process, the fuel is first partially oxidized with air at elevated pressure, converting the fuel to a raw fuel gas. In subsequent stages, the fuel gas is cleaned, and then first burned in a combustor and expanded in a gas turbine. Finally, the turbine exhaust gases are used to raise steam in a steam boiler, which drives a steam generator.
A two-stage form of incineration in which waste is first broken down in an oxygen-depleted environment, producing a gas which is then burned.
the process of changing into gas; "coal gas is produced by the gasification of coal"
Gasification, as opposed to incineration, consumes wastes by heating them to extreme temperatures in a vacuum, a process that is not harmful to the environment.
Any chemical or heat process used to convert a feedstock to a gaseous fuel.
This process involves turning waste into a fuel by heating it under controlled conditions with oxygen present
A process that produces mixtures of Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide - Synthesis Gas (Syn-Gas) - from carbonaceous materials. Additional information.
Any chemical or heat process used to convert rubber to a gas.
the breakdown of waste by heating it in a controlled system but with the addition of oxygen. The process generates gas (that can be used as an energy source).
An environmentally superior technology for converting a wide variety of hydrocarbon fuels (coal, heavy oil, petroleum coke, natural gas and wastes) into clean synthetic gas, or "syngas," which is used to produce electricity, industrial chemicals and gases as well as fuels and fertilizers.
A group of processes that turn coal into combustible gas by breaking apart the coal using heat and pressure and , in many cases, with hot steam.
Any of various processes by which coal is turned into natural gas.
A technology related to incineration where waste is heated in the presence of air to produce fuel rich gases.
A process that exposes a solid fuel to heat in the presence of limited oxygen to produce a gaseous fuel. This fuel contains hydrogen but also other gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and methane. Under suitable circumstances, gasification can produce synthesis gas, a mixture of just hydrogen and carbon monoxide.
Thermal treatment that involves heating waste in the presence of oxygen to recover energy in the form of gas.
A chemical or heat process to convert a solid fuel to a gaseous form.
The process of turning liquefied natural gas into a vapourous or gaseous state by increasing the temperature and decreasing the pressure.
A process that converts liquefied natural gas (LNG) from a liquid back to a gas. This is done by increasing the temperature and decreasing the pressure of the LNG.
A method for converting coal, petroleum, biomass, wastes, or other carbon-containing materials into a gas that can be burned to generate power or processed into chemicals and fuels.
The process of converting biomass into a gaseous fuel.
A thermal process which partly breaks down waste (or other) material leaving an energy-rich gas product. The conversion of coal to town gas is gasification.
The process where biomass fuel is reacted with subâ€“stoichiometric quantities of air and oxygen usually under high pressure and temperature along with moisture to produce gas which contains hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide, nitrogen, water and carbon dioxide. The gas can be burned directly in a boiler, or scrubbed and combusted in an engineâ€“generator to produce electricity. The three types of gasification technologies available for biomass fuels are the fixed bed updraft, fixed bed downdraft and fluidized bed gasifiers. Gasification is also the production of synthetic gas from coal.
the process of converting wood or other organic material into combustible gases. GPM/GPH – gallons per minute or gallons per hour -- a measure of the amount of water flowing through a fixture or pipe.
Incinerating waste (without air or open flame combustion) through vaporization, vapor destruction, and slow condensation of the off-gases as they slowly cool and pass through a secondary heating device.
The process of converting solid or liquid fuel into a gaseous fuel. An example is the gasification of coal.
A method for exploiting poor-quality coal and thin coal seams by burning the coal in place to produce combustible gas that can be collected and burned to generate power or processed into chemicals and fuels.
The process of converting solid or liquid fuel into a gaseous fuel such as the gasification of coal.
Conversion of solid material such as coal into a gas for use as a fuel.
