Waste to Gaseous Fuels
Gaseous fuels may be derived from variety of wastes ranging from municipal and industrial wastes or from animal manure and solid biomass such as crop silage or the organic fraction of MSW. A number of processes allow these wastes to be transformed into gaseous fuels. Biogas, Syngas and Producer gas are the predominantly produced gaseous fuels. The pathways by which these gaseous fuels are produced can be represented schematically in figure.
