High efficiency gasification system
The gasification of biomass in supercritical water (GASC) is a technology in the research phase that is carried out under conditions of pressure and temperatures higher than the critical point of water (374ºC and 221 bar). Under these conditions, GASC is a promising technology for the production of clean energy, which uses organic waste with a high moisture content (which is not suitable for conventional commercial gasification). The resulting product is a gas with a high content of H2 and low in CO2, which can be used as an alternative fuel.
The Government of the Principality of Asturias, through the FICYT (Foundation for the Promotion of Applied Scientific Research and Technology in Asturias) with funds coming from the Science, Technology and Innovation Plan (PCTI) of Asturias, has granted a grant to Magna Dea for the development of the DRY-FREE high efficiency gasification system. This project will also have other aid - within the "Jovellanos" Program, for the recruitment of university graduates to carry out activities related to research, technological development and innovation, during the period 2014-2015.
