Abstract :

The gasification of waste to produce biofuels through the Fischer Tropsch method is a technology with significant potential. The advantages of this technology is that it can accommodate a variety of waste materials to produce syngas. This syngas is then converted into fuels via the Fischer Tropsch method through reactions involving. The aim of this work is to optimize the gasification process to accommodate a feedstock variable in composition such as municipal solid waste to produce biofuels. Syngas composition will vary when processing MSW since the composition is inclusive of food wastes, paper, plastics, etc., at variables percentages. Therefore a reforming process to optimize the H2: CO ratio is required to maximize the efficiency of the process. The cost or method of reforming or reacting the syngas will play a crucial role on the economic viability of the process. The syngas is then passed to the Fischer Tropsch reactor in which reactions take place over a catalyst of either iron, cobalt or ruthenium depending on the H2: CO ratio and the desired end product.
