Let’s Clear The Air on Gasification Technology:
- No commercial facilities in the US have succeeded in using gasification, plasma, or pyrolysis to process MSW.
- Key US reports say gasification technologies not viable for MSW.
- Across US, high-heat conversion proposals have failed when investigated.
- Existing facilities overseas often fail to meet US needs and standards.
- All incineration, including gasification, wastes the energy and resources in MSW.
Facts rule out high heat for MSW
