  • In its process the waste is heated to turn it into gas (specifically syngas, which is a mixture of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide), then special enzymes convert the gas into ethanol.

  • The resulting chemical reaction vaporizes 75 to 85 percent of the waste, transforming it into a blend of gases known as syngas so called because they can be used to create synthetic natural gas.

  • The syngas is the fuel for either a natural gas engine or boiler after some modifications.

  • Oxygen is fed into the coal bed via pipes and the coal is burnt in situ producing a gas known as syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide, methane and hydrogen.

  • Obtaining gas from coal (called syngas) is not the latest technology around: At the end of the 19th century, many cities had gas lights and Germany had syngas-powered vehicles from the '20s until the end of WWII.

  • Gasification results in a mixture of carbon and hydrogen called syngas, which can then be used to make fuel.

  • This vaporization of the biomass feedstock leads to the formation of syngas, which is the basic building block that is turned into useful fuel.
