Organic waste to Hydrogen and nC
Organic Waste to intermediate
O2-free thermal decomposition
Thermal decomposition like Pyrolysis or Gasification are related to a process that converts organic waste into carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide, the combination of these gases is called syngas. Hydrogen generated could be purified and collected afterwards. The addition of Hydrogen to carbon monoxide could generate extra methane, which could be subjected to the next stage of thermo-catalytic splitting.
O2-free bio-chemical decomposition
Anaerobic digestion is a biologic decomposition process for unstructured (non fibrous) organic matter, such as vegetable, meat, plants, etc. In order to bring the process up to the bacterias’ maximum performance, the organic matter has to be kept within a limited temperature window, must not be exposed to oxygen and it needs an optimum aspect ratio (volume to surface) of particles) under continuous control of its chemical oxidation needs for constant feeding of the bacteria.
Intermediate to Hydrogen and nC
Thermo-catalytic splitting of Methane (collected from above) could produce nano morphologic carbon molecules plus two hydrogen molecules.
Guo – Business Development is promoting a process based on the same principles for a low Green House Gas Emission alternative to the commonly used Steam Reforming Technology, emitting about 10 times the mass of CO2 per Hydrogen produced. Since the by product of Guo – Business Development’s Hydrogen production method is still nano morphologic carbon, the CO2 balance of the process’ energy requirements can be offset by substituting broadly used Carbon Black in industry by those higher grade carbons, so eliminating the heavy CO2 emissions from Carbon Black production.
