The goal of my work is to make the energy-intensive process of continuous gasification of the RDF more sustainable by preheating the gasifying fluid (air or steam) with solar thermal energy from concentrated solar systems. The objective of a 24/7 delivery of a constant-temperature gasifying fluid will be investigated for the exclusive use of solar energy as well as for hybrid configurations, which exploit the sensible or combustion heat of the product (syngas), or electricity (plasma). Quite a mouthful! For any questions, contact Marco at: gigmarco@ethz.ch
