Turning Waste Streams into Clean Energy with Gasification
Generate clean electricity from Municipal Solid Waste, Wastewater Treatment Plant Sludge, Medical Waste and Plastics
Once problematic municipal solid waste, wastewater treatment sludge, plastic, and medical waste, can now be converted to clean energy through the patented Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) Gasification process.
The ACT Gasification Process
ACT Gasification is a staged process of converting organic and fossil fuel-based carbonaceous materials into a renewable energy source. The three -stage, highly controlled process involves a series of processes where waste material reacts with a controlled amount of oxygen at temperatures in excess of 1300°F without combustion.
Removing Waste and Producing Clean Electricity
The system is ideal for a wide range of applications and can generate clean electricity from a variety of waste material sources, including: municipal solid waste, plastic, medical waste, wastewater treatment sludge and more.
The cost benefits of the ACT Gasification System stem from the potential reduction in disposal costs, the reduction in volume of waste materials and from the generation of renewable electricity or valuable products from the waste materials. The ACT Gasification system can divert waste materials from land fill and incineration processing and provide beneficial economic and environmental impacts.

How ACT gasification can assist in reducing costs of municipal solid waste, medical waste, plastic and wastewater treatment sludge.
Gasification can offer cost-effective solutions for the treatment and disposal of various types of waste, including municipal solid waste, medical waste, plastic waste, and wastewater treatment sludge. Here’s how gasification can assist in reducing costs for each of
these waste types:
Municipal Solid Waste: Gasification of municipal solid waste (MSW) involves converting the organic and inorganic components of waste into syngas. The syngas can be used for the production of electricity, heat, or fuels, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and decreasing energy costs.
Additionally, gasification can divert waste from landfills, which reduces landfill expenses and mitigates environmental issues associated with waste disposal.
Medical Waste: Gasification provides an efficient and environmentally friendly method for treating medical waste, such as infectious materials, sharps, and pharmaceutical waste. Gasification of medical waste at high temperatures destroys pathogens and reduces the volume of waste. The syngas produced can be used for energy generation, thereby offsetting
waste disposal costs and potentially providing a cost effective renewable energy stream of electricity and heat.
Plastic Waste: Gasification can help address the growing problem of plastic waste. By subjecting plastic waste to high temperatures in a gasifier, it can be converted into syngas and other valuable products. The syngas can be used as a fuel or feedstock for the production of chemicals and fuels, reducing the dependence on virgin fossil resources. The process can also significantly reduce the volume of plastic waste, facilitating easier handling and disposal.
Wastewater Treatment Sludge: Gasification offers an alternative to conventional methods of treating and disposing of wastewater treatment sludge. By gasifying the sludge, the organic components can be converted into syngas, while the inorganic components are transformed into an inert ash. This not only reduces the volume of sludge for disposal but also generates syngas that can be utilized for energy production.
PFAS – The ACT Gasification process can also reduce or eliminate PFAS from the waste streams provided to the system.
