TO GREEN ENERGY
Waste Gasification process can convert
materials normally considered waste into energy and valuable products. In the
U.S. alone thousands of tons of a potential source of energy are collected and
thrown away each week.
Most of the waste that we discard from our homes and
businesses every day - such as non-recyclable plastics, construction debris,
used tires, household trash, and sewage - contains energy. WPP Gasification
technology can convert the energy in all of this waste into electric power,
substitute natural gas, chemicals, biogas, transportation fuels, and fertilizers.
WPP Gasification technology is not incineration. Incineration is the burning of
fuels in an oxygen-rich environment, where the waste material combusts and
produces heat and carbon dioxide, along with a variety of other pollutants.
Gasification is the conversion of feed-stocks into their simplest molecules -
carbon monoxide, hydrogen and methane forming a Syngas which is used for
generating electricity or producing valuable salable products locally and
has a number of significant environmental benefits:
Reduces need for

transportation costs for waste that no longer needs to be shipped hundreds
of miles for disposal

Waste to clean fuel
WPP Biogas production is a natural process. Biogas is produced by the
degradation of organic matter in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic digestion).
This degradation, also referred to as methanization, occurs in natural areas
like swamps or in controlled areas like landfill containing organic waste.
Methanization can be artificially controlled by fermenting sewage sludge,
industrial or agricultural crops.
Efficient reduction of greenhouse gases
Biomethane is produced from biomass, is therefore a renewable energy resource
and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. The use of landfill or waste
for biogas production can even result in a reduction of CO2 emissions as methane
leakage is prevented (the effect of which, as a greenhouse gas, is 23 times
greater than carbon dioxide).
Biomethane has a very wide range of
Biomethane can be produced via two different processes – digestion and thermal
gasification. Digestion is an anaerobic process where bacteria convert
degradable organic matter into methane and carbon dioxide. The feedstock is
sewage sludge, household, industrial and agricultural waste. Biogas may also be
produced from various agricultural energy crops.
gasification technique allows even waste-wood from forests or agriculture to be
used to produce biomethane.
upgrading to a high level of methane concentration – biomethane – to be used in
cars or to be injected into the natural gas grid. Compared to other alternative
fuels, biomethane benefits from the extensive availability of biomass feedstock
Sustainable waste treatment and
Production of biogas from waste may be a key to a more sustainable waste
treatment system. Residual digestion-based products may be used in agriculture
as fertilizer. Nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphor and potassium are circulated
back into the soil.
