how plasma converters work - oil spill absorbent
There are three main by-products of plasma gasification process: synthetic gas (syngas)Slag and heat.
Let's look at these by-products in more detail.
Synthesis gas is a mixture of several gases, but mainly composed of hydrogen and carbon monoxide.
It can be used as a source of fuel, and some factories use it to both supply power to the plant and sell excess power to the grid.
There is a large amount of potential energy in the garbage;
The gasification process enables engineers to convert potential energy into electrical energy.
How much gas does a plasma converter produce?
It depends on what you put in the stove.
If the garbage contains a lot of carbonBasic materials (
In other words, organic waste)
So you can get more gas.
Waste containing a large amount of inorganic materials does not produce that much gas.
Because of this, some plasma devices classify garbage before sending it into the system.
The solid by-products produced by the gasification process are called slag.
The weight and volume of the original scrap are greatly reduced.
According to the doctor
Circeo, plasma department, Georgia Institute of Technology: according to the way you cool the slag, the slag can have different forms. If slag is air-
It is cooled to form black glass rock that looks and feels like black obsi stone and can be used for concrete or asphalt.
The molten slag can flow into the brick or paving stone mold and then cool the air to the ready-to-
Building materials are used.
If you blow compressed air through the flow of this molten material, you end up with wool.
The wool looks like gray marshmallow.
According to the doctor, this is light and wispy.
Circeo, it has the potential to revolutionize the plasma waste disposal industry.
Wool is a very effective thermal insulation, twice as much as fiberglass.
It is also lighter than water, but it is very easy to absorb.
Because of this, it has the potential to be used to help control and clean oil spills in the ocean.
Cleaning up staff may spread rock and roll around during the oil spill.
At the same time of oil absorption, rock wool will float on the surface of the water, which makes the collection relatively easy.
You can also use the water farming system of rock wool--
Farmers can plant the seeds on the slabs.
At present, the ore is produced by the ore, melting the ore, and then logistics the melting to the spinning machine.
The spinning machine throws a molten substance in the air.
Today, a pound of wool costs more than one dollar.
Since wool is a by-product of the plasma gasification process, it takes only 10 cents per pound.
The price of insulation will be reduced, and energy efficiency will be reduced.
Saving technology will increase, and in addition to selling power back to the grid, there is another considerable source of revenue for the plasma gasification plant.
Plasma technical experts including doctors
Circeo asserts that the slag is actually leak-free, meaning that any hazardous material is inert and will not dissolve from the slag.
The heat generated by the plasma device is considerable in degrees Celsius.
The heat from the molten slag helps to maintain the temperature in the furnace.
Some heat from the gas can be used to convert water into steam, which in turn enables steam turbines to generate electricity.
Waste disposal through gasification is unique because it can not only remove waste and generate electricity, but also produce by-products that are valuable goods in themselves.
In the next section, we will discuss the existing and future plasma factories and pioneer companies for this technology.
