The Entech-WtGas-RES™ is the core technology of our company. Our technology is protected by worldwide patents and is described below.
The Thermal Degradation Spectrum
|PYROLYSIS||LOW TEMPERATURE GASIFICATION||HIGH TEMPERATURE GASIFICATION||COMBUSTION / INCINERATION|
|Reference||-||Per the ENTECH-WtGas-RES™||Alternative ENTECH-WtGas-RES™||-|
|Process Air Input (*)||Nil||15% - 30% of stoichiometric (**||50% - 60% of stoichiometric (**)||200% - 250% of stoichiometric (**)|
|Process Temp. (*)||≈ 550°C||≈ 600°C - 875°C||≈ 1150°C - 1275°C||≈ 850°C - 1000°C|
|By-Product||Fuel oil-like CnHn hydrocarbon vapours||Methane-like gases high in CO, CH4 & CnHn hydrocarbons||Gases high in CO & H2||Oxidised off-gas|
|By-Product Uses||Fuel||Firing for renewable energy or refining/synthesis into biofuel (***)||Firing for renewable energy or refining/synthesis into hydrogen fuel||Heat Recovery|
|Available as a Fuel Source||Yes||Yes||Yes||No|
|Typical Fuel Uses||Diesel power generators or engines||Diesel power generators or engines||Gas power generators or engines||-|
|Typical Emission Impact||Emissions are similar to firing of fuel oil||Syngas firing emissions are cleaner than firing of most fossil fuels||Syngas firing emissions are cleaner than firing of most fossil fuels||Combustion / incineration emissions are politically sensitive|
|(*)||Refer to Thermal Degradation Spectrum graph above for explanation of air and temperature relationships.|
|(**)||Denotes percentage of air required for complete combustion.|
|(***)||ENTECH™ is at the development stage of WtFuel projects in conjunctions with equipment suppliers that are experienced in syngas refining (via the Fischer Tropsch process).|
