Feed materials can consist of random waste substances or a specific mix. HTCW gasification technology is intended for the disposal and utilisation of any kind fo waste (except radio-active). Organic content is turned into energy generation (gas, heat). Different plant designs are available for individual requirements set by waste types and capacities.

For instance:

  • Household waste and bulky waste
  • Mechanically treated waste (bulk waste, waste wood, old cars, car shredder residue)
  • Industrial and trade waste
  • Biological materials of any kind
  • Batteries
  • Hazardous waste
  • Clinical waste
  • Waste from paper industry
  • Used tyres, rubber
  • Scrap metal
  • Compound materials
  • Asbestos
  • Coal Gangue
  • Oil sludge....
  • .... in fact any waste, except radio-active

Minimal requirements:

  • Optimum moisture range between 10 and 25 %. It is possible to process waste with higher moisture content by mixing it with other waste streams or use the reactor’s heat for pre-drying
  • The mixed calorific value of the waste feed and additional material should be at least 12 MJ/kg. If less, addition of coke or other waste materials with a high calorific value is added, such as wood or rubber
  • Particle size must be adjusted to the inlet of the HTCW reactor (~ 500 mm)

Pre-sorting (removal of metals or mineral components e.g. stones before processing) is not required, nor shredding. Depending on the composition of the feed material, addition of dusty and fine-grained substances can be added to the waste stream, up to a certain ratio. This can also be in briquette form. In controlled quantities, liquids contained in solid waste or containers can be added.
