PHG Energy’s Downdraft Gasifier is a sequential, co-current flow, gravity-assisted, thermo-chemical phase change reactor or, more simply put, a revolution in biomass gasification. PHG Gasification Technology:
Creates a synthetic fuel called Producer Gas which can be piped to existing equipment where it is fired in direct heat processes such as kilns, boilers and thermal oxidizers, or refined further to produce a cleaner form of fuel for other industrial applications such as internal combustion engines for electrical generation.
Utilizes a wide range of renewable and readily-available biomass, such as wood chips, processed municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, construction waste, and other waste or purpose-grown feedstock to yield the clean-burning Producer Gas.
Allows users to substitute less expensive renewable fuel for natural gas, saving up to 75% of energy cost in some applications.
Provides an economically sound and environmentally sensible alternative to non-renewable fossil fuels, such as diesel oil and coal, without the emission problems typical of those fuels.
Protects users from fossil fuel shortages and unpredictable price increases.
Positions adaptors favorably for regulatory actions involving Renewable Portfolio Standards, Carbon Caps and Trades, or Carbon Taxes and allows them to capitalize on the production and investment tax credits.
Produces no pollution during the solid-to-gas conversion process, and the resulting Producer Gas burns as cleanly as natural gas in most applications regardless of feedstock chosen.
Provides a small amount of recyclable byproduct, known as biochar, which is easily manageable, carbon rich and has value for further use.
