Tanking Up Your Car With Gasified Household & Office Waste; Time & More Investment Will Produce Emission-free BioFuels From Trash, Reducing Carbon Dioxide

SITUATION :
Process is Waste gasification or pyrolysis of non-recyclable trash.
Transforming garbage from homes & offices into vehicle fuel.
Global companies seek to turn trash into low emission fuels

SIGNIFICANCE:
Solids derived from trash can are then synthesized & gasified into biofuel.
Clean energy requires long time & development periods, making biofuels costly.
Trash  is feed into gasifier at hi temp & pressure, producing syngas & hydrocarbons.

SOLUTIONS:
Sierra Energy can process 10 tons of garbage & produce ton of Hydrogen each day.
Breaking down of bottles & packaging produces biofuels & emission free hydrogen.
Trash refineries on verge of commercialized waste gasifiers.
Goal is make biofuels more production efficient & release less carbon than fossil.
London company, Velocys to produce 60 M liters of jet & road fuel by 2025.
Repsol investing $ 24M in pyrolysis plant – Focus on next door refinery.

STATS:
Methane comprises 20% of global greenhouse emissions.
Transportation accounts for about 25 % of global carbon dioxide emissions

COMPANIES INVOLVED:
Sierra Energy (Monterey CA]
Omni Conversion Technologies (Canada)
International Airlines Group
Velocys [ Uk ]
Repsol
Nestor Oyi [Finland]
Shell [pursuing developing it’s own emission reduction technologies]
Breakthrough Energy Ventures
