Gasification Technologies Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Gasification Technologies
A Primer for Engineers and Scientists
by John Rezaiyan

Gasification Technologies: A Primer for Engineers and Scientists discusses gasification techniques and the benefits of each technology, including gas clean-up technologies and those used in hybrid systems and fuel cells.

Gasification Technologies also accounts for the primary products that are recovered and explains how these products are purified and can be used as fuel or for applications in petrochemical processes.

The book describes the conditions in which optimal value intermediate products can be recovered, focusing on key factors such as oxygen or air blown reactor, operating temperature, internal and external heating, and reactor design. It also establishes how gasification can help meet renewable energy targets, address concerns about global warming, and contribute to a better carbon management or achieving Kyoto Protocol commitments.

Features:

  • Describes the chemical and technological principles behind the gasification of various feedstock materials
  • Compares and discusses the advantages of each technology and its end-products
  • Provides practical engineering data and minimal theory
  • Shows how gasification technologies can benefit the environment
  • Details the integration of gasification technologies, including hybrid systems and fuel cells

Gasification Technologies provides a multidimensional and well-rounded examination of current technology, research, applications, and development challenges for the commercialization of this increasingly popular technology.
