Summary:Cost-effective, Clean, and Self-sustainable Power Generation and Complete Utilization of any Renewable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) or Other Solid Mixtures On June 12, 2012 we received U.S. Patent # 8,197,565 disclosing our development of the advanced thermo-chemical method (TCM) and an original engineering facility of the typical TCM-MSW plant, which gasifies in a column reactor an organic part of the feedstock in a steam atmosphere at ~17500C. The inorganic part of the decomposed feedstock is melted in the same reactor. The TCM-MSW plant completely recycles and utilizes MSW and other carbonaceous solid mixtures to simultaneously produce six commercial products: 1) a synthetic fuel gas(syngas with calorific value 3600kcal/kg) to be used either for electricity generation or conversion into liquid fuel,2) steam and hot water, 3) multi-metal alloy cast goods, 4) concrete filler non-metal materials, 5) vegetables or green mass, and 6) chemical salts. In contrast with drawbacks of usual waste-to-energy (WTE) plants, the TCM-MSW plant and its operation are associated with six groups of technical, environment, and economic advantages. These are: 1) A 93% thermal efficiency of organic gasification, 2) No emission of dioxins, furans, and methane pollutant gases and flying particles from gasified organic components and therefore no need for complicated filters, 3) No ash production from inorganic components and therefore no need to for ash transport and landfill, 4) Self-sustainable operation of TCMMSW plant, which does not consume outside fuel, water, electricity, additives, and catalysts, 5) Utilization in onsite greenhouse ~95% of the CO2 emission generated by burning poisoning-gas-free syngas in a steam heat or apparatus and an electro turbo-generator system, and 6) Versatility of the feedstock, which can be sorted or unsort d MSW, home, garden or medical waste, home debris, used tires, ash and accumulated waste in landfill dumps, agricultural and food production waste, schist, lean coal, pitch, used asphalt, etc. with an average calorific value>1100kcal/kg. In addition, TCM-MSW plants can make unnecessary the production of bio-fuel from corn and other food usable crops thereby reducing food prices.
