The Alternative TechnologiesWith qualified independent studies and industry expert advices as source, these illustrations show that HTCW gasification encompasses the functionality of the main competing technologies together, capable of processing all types of waste in mixed compositions. Concurrently, high and low CV wastes can be combined if needed.
With different processing charges ("gate fees") for different waste categories, revenue targets can be controlled by processing these mixed. This mixing of waste types is enabled by the HTCW automatic conveyor feeder system. Further evidence can be found in the Case Study completed by the British Environment Agency — see UK Inspection ... >>>.
Total Disposal IllustratedAs CV ratio rises, HTCW generates higher energy yields. The higher the CV, the better the energy efficiency. Here is where HTCW further stands out from incinerators / air blown gasifiers (including plasma assisted) which have their limitations in this respect (see HTCW Efficiency button above), additionally enabling control of revenues from energy generation.
Here is demonstrated how the various technologies best fit into the waste treatment industry. With 80% renewables content, anaerobic process is recommendable but up to approximately CV 38 MJ/Kg, from where the HTCW produces better energy efficiency in this category.
