Waste Gasification; Diverting Waste From Landfill

Gasification is a technological process that converts any carbonaceous (carbon-based) raw material into synthesis gas, used to produce other fuels, namely methanol and diesel fuel.

Aries Linden has completed mechanical completion of their Biosolids (a product of wastewater treatment process) Gasification Plant in Linden, New Jersey, which is the largest gasification plant of its type in the world.

Once fully operational, the plant will process 430 tons of biosolids daily, producing 22 tons of concrete additive daily.

Currently 90% of the domestic Class A biosolids market is disposed of through ineffective conventional means such as landfilling, land application, or incineration

Waste gasification is receiving attention due to the availability of raw materials (waste). Could this be the future solution to decreasing landfill sites?
