COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION ON THE POTENTIAL OF PYROLYSIS TECHNOLOGY FOR RESOURCE RECOVERY FROM WASTES

The research problem to be addressed is the diversion of organic waste from landfills which, currently, in addition of using the limited space available, generate polluting leachate and greenhouse gases. On the other hand, landfilling organics represent a wasted opportunity to recover valuable chemical and energy resources. The internship will focus on the investigation of the potential of pyrolysis technology to address such problems, by creating opportunities to convert the waste into value-added chemicals and fuels. This project will research, investigate and critically compare the opportunities of a novel technology, such as the Bio-Techfar mobile pyrolysis to other technologies, including composting, anaerobic digestion, gasification, production of refuse derived fuel and combustion for heat and power.
