Gasification

Gasification is an extension of the pyrolysis process for thermochemical treatment of sludge, with the conversion taking place in a partial reducing atmosphere at higher temperatures than those used for pyrolysis. The process aims to completely convert the carbonaceous content to a solid ash and a clean combustible gas product (called syngas) for use locally.

How do you solve a problem like PFAS?

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are generated from the breakdown of fluorinated polymers. The activation barrier for their breakdown is huge and the only fully commercialised processes possibly capable of destroying PFAS are thermochemical ones.
