Coal Gasification

Coal has historically been used to supply electricity, with most burned at coal-fired power plants. Coal gasification is a newer thermo-chemical process in which the gasifier’s heat and pressure break down coal into basic chemical components and turn it into a synthetic natural gas called syngas.  While syngas can be produced from many other sources…

Railroad Tie Pyrolysis

Railroad tie pyrolysis presents some interesting opportunities.  In the U.S. alone, over 20 million new wood railroad ties are installed every year. While wood is currently the best option for railroad ties (and utility poles) the ability to re-use or dispose of treated wood coming is clearly a critical consideration.  The regulatory, environmental, and financial…
