The Gasplasma® plant has no flue gas stacks or chimneys, being based on a hermetically sealed process. The only significant emissions from the plant into the atmosphere will be those from converting the syngas into electricity:
Throughout the installation the syngas will be treated to achieve the degree of purity acceptable for fuel cells;
In the first operational phase Syngas will be transformed into electricity through gas engine cogeneration. The emission levels in this configuration will be highlighted in the study of dispersion currently in progress;
In the second phase, gas engines will be gradually replaced by “fuel cells” systems. In this configuration along with the substantial increase of the conversion efficiency there will be a reduction of NOx emissions.
The proposed project is estimated to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the City of Mori by 30%.
