A Guided Tour On a Real Municipal Solid Waste Power Plant
Lab is in the build-up stage at this time.
This is a supply for the feedstock. And you can use a variety of feedstocks, solid and municipal wastes.
The feedstock comes in at this point and goes through a series of valves to maintain the pressure or vacuum in the system. It's loaded at one valve opens and the other valve closes. Feedstock travels up this auger system, fuel-loading system to the main reactor, and enters through another gate system at this point.
The hot gasified feed exhausts from the end of the reactor and goes into a series of particle separators. And at this point much of the solid contamination is removed. The hot gas is then proceeded to be bubbled through a separator, condenser that condenses the hot gases back to about 400 degrees and extracts the heavy component of the oil. What we call Fat1 oil.
Also at the exhaust end of the reactor through a gate-valve system the char – remaining component of the feedstock and has been completely reduced to a carbon-based fertilizer. It is extracted at this point and taken to the outside storage area by the auger tube and the lower component.
Here is the number two reactor is being constructed. You can see the heat bands from one end to the other of it. And it is about 100%, very close – 95% of construction is completed at this point. And than the insulating sections will be installed over the top of this heat bands. As the feedstock moves down the reactor tube, it reaches the temperature of 700 degrees and then rises on to about 750 degrees as it proceeds down the tube.
And the last stage: in this tube the fuel is cooled back down to 650 degrees – at that point.
The gas is coming from the number 1 condenser. Comes out the 4–inch pipe through the valve above these tanks. And at that point it goes through the Number 2 condenser. The horizontal tube here, condenses the light oil.
Ok, we are lighting up the fuel produced by the reactor. And you can see how much energy
is in it. How well it does burn. So there is a lot of useful energy there. That is really going good.
We've been able to run today the diesel engines – Caterpillar diesel on this fuel. Straight of the reactor. A mix of one-quarter heavy and three-quarter light. The Caterpillar engine fueled by the products of the reactor runs like a top! We have just recently started the production, so far 7000 gallons have already been sold and the plant is working every day.

you are very talented.September 14th, 2010 at 5:52 pm
Hi there, I found your blog via Google while searching for first aid for a heart attack and your post looks very interesting for me.September 9th, 2010 at 11:55 pm
An additional new write-up with strong points, I’ve been a lurker right here for just a short time but hope to get a great deal far more engaged from the future….September 6th, 2010 at 11:31 am
I Too Like the Blog here. Keep up all the work. I too love to blog. This is great everyone sharing opinions 🙂September 6th, 2010 at 7:18 am
Nice writing. You are on my RSS reader now so I can read more from you down the road.September 4th, 2010 at 9:34 pm
Hi from LA! I found that really interesting. Thanks for the information. I will be back to look for more info as soon as I get the chance.September 3rd, 2010 at 6:11 am
Sorry…I meant comment yesterday. I am convinced that it is fair. Keep up the fantastic work. I’ll be back soonSeptember 3rd, 2010 at 4:33 am
Yes, I was totally in tune with that. So was my brother. He said he definitely intends to check it out tomorrow. We will return before you can say anything.September 2nd, 2010 at 8:13 am
Cool stuff, but the sidebar don’t display properly on my Powerbook…maybe you ought to check that out. Thanks, anyway.September 2nd, 2010 at 6:32 am
Sure would be good to bring back AMERICAN jobs instead of republicans sending all our jobs overseas for cheap labor. All they want to do is see just how much they can be worth instead of how much they could help the AMERICAN public. Just how much money do you need and just how much do you want? My opinion after 10 million they rest ought to be taxed 75%. Come on what would you do with more than 10 million dollars except doing things that are not going to help anyone except yourself. Let me know where to sign up because I will help the AMERICAN PUBLIC! I have so many friends that are not near as fortunate as myself and will die working because they don’t make enough to retire.April 18th, 2010 at 5:47 pm
When will stock be available because I would like to be envolved early in the game. I knew someone would come forward with an idea like this just like the car that got 50 miles to the gallon. I really don’t think this will ever fly because someone will pay big money for you not to go any further with this idea. But when you do I will support you right from the start to employ AMERICANSApril 18th, 2010 at 5:36 pm
This is a fitting reply to the present OPEC partners.January 11th, 2009 at 2:46 am
I would be keen if this models / pilot plants can made available to the developing countries , world would get relieved of much tension.

gracias y saludos
This is a very interesting waste to energy so how do get more information on this process.January 10th, 2009 at 12:53 pm
