Recent advances in the gasification of waste plastics. A

Feb 01, 2018 · Gasification of waste plastics leads to the production of a stream made up of mainly H 2, CO, CO 2, CH 4 and N 2.Thus, the interest of gasification processes lies in the feasibility of producing energy, energy carries (such as H 2) and chemicals from the syngas produced (fuels, DME, methanol and so on) .A remarkable advantage of gasification compared to pyrolysis is the greater flexibility to

Toward net-zero sustainable aviation fuel with wet waste

Mar 30, 2021 · To meet the growing demand for sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), conversion pathways are needed that leverage wet waste carbon and meet jet fuel property specifications. Here, we demonstrate SAF production from food wastederived volatile fatty acids (VFA) by targeting normal paraffins for a near-term path to market and branched isoparaffins to increase the renewable content
