Modular simulation and optimization of an 12MW industrial gasifier

Abstract : In this work, a flexible model, built from elementary modules, is developed for an industrial waste gasification process, in an industrial moving bed reactor located in Morcenx (France). This gasifier is able to treat more than 46,875 ton/year of RDF (Refused Derived Fuel) waste for producing 12 MW. Drying, pyrolysis, combustion / gasification and plasma polishing are used to convert waste directly into a synthesis gas composed of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. This synthesis gas is then used for producing electricity via gas engine.
