Grant Florida, April 9th 2008: Florida Syngas LLC this week has presented a
technical paper titled “Waste Glycerol Conversion into Syngas” to the American Chemical
Society’s (ACS) national conference held in New Orleans. Glycerol is the waste product
created by the bio-diesel industry, the available quantity of which has ramped up since bio diesel refineries are now being built in earnest. Syngas is an industry abbreviation for synthesis
gas, which is a term loosely applied to any artificially generated gas that contains mostly hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO).The information, was presented as both a “Poster Session” and oral session to industry peers. The paper describes the methodology of creating a high voltage plasma and injecting air and glycerol in the proper mix to produce a clean burning syngas that also creates extra heat for subsequent industrial processes. The reactor efficiency is estimated to be 90%, it creates a carbon neutral gas, and does not require any exotic metals or structures to be manufactured.
Synthesis gas can be flared directly to be used as a heating source for water heaters, deep fryers or other materials and processes. Syngas is presently a topic of study for an energy source for gas turbines that are used in the generation of electricity. More information can be found at www.FloridaSyngas.com .
