FastOx Gasification

A modular blast furnace gasification system for commercially scalable waste management

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labeled Solution
Label Date June 3, 2020
From United States
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 3-4 - Commercial Scale Up / Multiple commercial Applications

This solution can eliminate the environmentally harmful practice of landfilling and incinerating of waste. The FastOx technology uses oxygen and steam to heat waste to 4,000°F (2,200°C). At this temperature, all waste breaks down at the molecular level, converting organic material into an energy-dense syngas and allowing the recovery of inorganic material as either a non-leaching stone or molten metal. The FastOx technology, which is modular and can be scaled to large size, does not produce any process emissions and all outputs are saleable. The ability to handle municipal solid waste, plastics, medical waste, e-waste, tires, and batteries makes the system extremely versatile and economically efficient to implement.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Eliminates 107,570 MTCO2e/Year

The Financial Benefits
