Catalytic gasification of organic matter in super-critical water

Yeda, Israel, Israel

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A Simple and efficient method for biomass gasification while co-generating electricity. Super-critical water (~400ÂșC) can created by heating water with excess heat from already existing industrial processes. The supercritical water can than degrade biomass to Syngas (H2, methane, CO2 and CO) while co-generating electricity.

Primary Application Area: Environmental, Water & Waste

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 2

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Waste management of biomass while making use of already existing heat from other processes while co-generating heat to additionally supplement process.
