Thermal gasification of municipal solid waste (MSW) is a chemical process that generates a gaseous, fuel-rich product. This product can then be combusted in a boiler, producing steam for power generation. Just as with combustion of MSW, thermal MSW gasification does not necessarily compete with recycling programmes, but should be considered complementary in any generically constructed MSW plan.
Alcohol burning stoves based on methanol can be used to supply a cooking service, water heating and heating of buildings. The technology can be applied in households, institutions (e.g. schools) and industries where it is used for boiler heating.

The Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is an entity that supports the UNEP’s International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), based in Japan. GEC is dedicated to the transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in both developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.
Background: Gases that occur in nature or that are produced in industrial processes often contain carbon dioxide (CO2). Because of process requirements or because of the end result desired it is sometimes desirable to remove carbon dioxide from a mixture of CO2 and other gases.
This invention provides an integrated power generation process with improved efficiency. It relates to electric power generation in a fuel cell driven by the products of dry gasification of solid carbonaceous fuels by flowing CO2 gas. This high temperature single step process recycles CO2 by converting it into a valuable gaseous fuel. In contrast to conventional steam gasification this new process does not require water which preserves an important resource. It also supplies the oxygen required for the oxidation reaction through an ionically selective solid oxide electrolyte membrane.
Straw feedstuff is the use of advanced cold forming technology a new feedstuff by briquetting machine production. This feedstuff was massive density and easy to transport and storage it is a strong practicality. Straw gasification of straw gasification broadly referred to as 'biomass gasification' means the combustion of biomass in the anoxic condition the occurrence of chemical reactions to generate high-grade easy to transport the use of high efficiency fuel gas.
EER has been working on numerous of projects around the world to provide a solution to dispose of waste while harnessing energy. For example EER will provide the PGM technology to a Waste to Energy (WtE) project in the US for the removal of municipal waste. In the UK and Eastern Europe EER is working with local developers to establish a PGM Waste to Energy processing plant.
