Hydrothermal gasification

Hydrothermal gasification represents the highest-temperature hydrothermal process, operating at temperatures of up to ~550 °C, producing a gaseous product rich in hydrogen and/or methane. The process is sometimes referred to as supercritical water gasification, since temperatures exceed the critical point for water, and is thus analogous to supercritical water oxidation which operates in the same supercritical region but employs higher temperatures due to the exothermic nature of the oxidation reactions.

PFAS molecule

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.
