  • Hydrogen from waste plastics by way of pyrolysis–gasification
    • Abstract: A screw kiln continuous reaction system was used to investigate the production of hydrogen from a representative waste plastic (polypropylene). The reactor system consisted of two stages, with pyrolysis of the plastic in the first-stage screw kiln, followed by catalytic gasification of the product pyrolysis gases in the second stage. Two catalysts (a laboratory prepared Ni-Mg-Al catalyst and a commercial nickel catalyst) were used and the process conditions of gasification temperature and water injection rate were investigated. The results showed that the introduction of catalyst into the gasification stage dramatically increased the hydrogen production. The gas and hydrogen production and amount of reacted water per hour were increased with the increase of the gasification temperature from 600 to 900°C for both the Ni-Mg-Al and the commercial nickel catalysts. The rate of water injection was also shown to be critical for hydrogen production. The maximum hydrogen produced was 52% of the maximum theoretical hydrogen available in the polypropylene, representing 22·38 g of hydrogen per 100 g polypropylene, obtained with the Ni-Mg-Al catalyst, at 800°C gasification temperature and with 28·46 g/h water injection rate.
       
  • Hydrocarbons obtained by pyrolysis of waste materials
    • Abstract: This paper deals with the pyrolysis of waste polymers producing valuable hydrocarbons. Municipal solid waste (MSW), municipal plastic waste (MPW), contaminated municipal plastic waste (CMPW) and automotive and electronic plastic waste (AEPW) were pyrolysed in a gas-heated reactor at 550°C at a feed rate of 10 kg/h. Pyrolysis products were separated into hydrocarbon gases, water, pyrolysis oil, heavy oil and char in a separation column. The yields of gases and pyrolysis oil were 15·8–24·2% and 35·5–55·2% respectively. Pyrolysis oil had C5–C32 hydrocarbons in the form of olefins, paraffins, aromatics, with amounts significantly affected by the raw materials. Beside hydrocarbons, water was formed from MSW raw material. The products obtained from MPW pyrolysis had the best properties for further utilisation: advanced hydrocarbon composition and low contaminant level. The highest amounts of contaminants (nitrogen, sulfur, chlorine, zinc, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, chromium, etc.) were measured in the products of CMPW and MSW pyrolysis.

  • Briefing: Energy from waste in the UK: call for papers
    • Abstract: This article provides a brief to potential authors of articles for Waste and Resource Management on the status of energy recovery from waste in the UK as of October 2013. The aim is to present the position in the industry at the time of writing, state the issues prevailing at the time of writing and suggest topics that could be addressed by potential authors.

  • Effect of oxygen and steam on gasification of palm oil wastes
    • Abstract: The distribution of gas products released from palm oil waste gasification was investigated. The combustion of palm oil wastes (empty fruit bunches, palm fibre and shell) was studied using thermogravimetric analysis and the results showed that fibre and EFB easily ignite with a single peak while three peaks were observed for palm shell. The fibre gasification was conducted under different air and steam ratios, and it was found that gasification mainly occurs at 220–500°C. The mass loss rate of fibre increases with oxygen input. The maximum yield of carbon monoxide occurs for an air ratio of 0·13. Steam input impacts only at high temperatures, with high amounts of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide and a significantly high hydrogen yield. Thermodynamic equilibrium simulation showed that the contributions of oxygen from steam and oxygen have different influences on hydrogen yield: the hydrogen yield increases with steam input, but decreases with oxygen input.
       
  • Utilisation of oxygen for enhanced gasification performance
    • Abstract: Oxygen-based gasification offers advantages over air-based gasification such as reduced capital costs or similar operating costs combined with the potential to use the higher calorific value syngas in high-efficiency power generation systems, greatly enhancing revenue creation potential. This paper reports on the effects of increasing oxygen purity on the gasification processes and includes a techno-economic assessment that uses both theoretical and experimental observations involving the gasification of a waste fuel. Syngas quality is dramatically affected by the purity of the oxygen used in gasification, with increased purity leading to reduced levels of nitrogen, increased levels of combustible gas components and enhanced calorific values. The calorific value of air-based gasification syngas is 4–5 MJ/Nm3, but increases to 10–12 MJ/Nm3 with oxygen-based gasification. In addition, gasification performance, as measured by cold gas conversion efficiency, is also affected by the purity of the oxygen used in gasification, with levels rising from 40% for air-based systems to 80% in oxygen-based systems. The results of this study indicate that capital costs associated with oxygen-based gasification can be as much as 40% less than a comparable scale air-based gasification system. In addition, investment returns can be considerably boosted from the use of oxygen-based gasification.
