Moving Injection Horizontal Gasification
Simple, reliable, low cost
Suitable for a wide range of variable feedstocks with no preparation required
Unique configuration avoids many problems faced by conventional gasifiers
Organic waste including biomass is a source of stored renewable energy, however it is a difficult feedstock and is often simply mulched, composted or landfilled. Post-recycling residual waste is typically landfilled creating poor environmental outcomes
Combustion technology is not attractive at the smaller scales needed to match the available waste volumes. Gasification is a promising alternative, however existing technologies are also not viable at small scale
Generation from intermittent renewables such as solar and wind is increasing rapidly. Without dispatchable sources of renewable power, massive investment in energy storage will be required
How it Works
Feedstock is loaded
Reactor is closed
Feedstock is ignited
Air injection point is slowly retracted to gasify the fuel
Reactor is opened and reloaded
Raw syngas is cleaned using proven technology
By-products are recycled to MIHG reactor
Clean syngas is converted to power using proven gas engine technology
Renewable baseload power is supplied to customer or grid
Optional cogeneration of heat and power or production of hydrogen and biofuels
The MIHG process delivers negative net greenhouse gas emissions when processing general wastes destined for landfill.
The MIHG process produces renewable energy products such as electricity, hydrogen, syngas and biofuels/chemicals.
The MIHG process reduces the quantity of waste sent to landfill.
The MIHG process can be integrated with material recovery facilities to increase waste recycling and transition to a more circular economy.
