About the Pyrolysis over Incineration or Gasification
Incineration: Combustion of materials in an oxygen-rich environment, producing heat, smoke, ash and other by-products. Example would be burning waste in a commercial incinerator to heat water to power a steam turbine;
Gasification: Breakdown of hydrocarbons into a syngas by carefully controlling the amount of oxygen present. And example would be the conversion of coal into town gas;
Pyrolisation: Thermal degradation of waste in the absence of oxygen to produce char, pyrolysis oil and syngas. Example is the conversion of cellulose fibre into a synthetic gas.
Combustion of materials in an oxygen-rich environment produces heat, ash, smoke and other harmful by-products. The breakdown of feedstock into a synthetic gas by carefully controlling the amount of oxygen present is still a “burn” process. Thermal degradation of feedstock in the absence of oxygen to produce pyrolysis oil or syngas is very different and results in virtually no harmful emissions.
