About this book

This book explores the use of recent advanced multiple stage conversion technologies. These applications combine conventional fluidised bed systems with new plasma technologies to efficiently generate different energy outputs from waste materials with minimum cleaning effort. Using a mix of modelling and experimental approaches, the author provides fundamental insights into how the key operating variables of the two-stage process may impact the final quality of syngas. This thesis serves as a useful reference guide on the modelling and design of single and multiple-stage systems for thermal waste treatment. Its extended section on plant configuration and operation of waste gasification plants identifies the main technical challenges, and is of use to researchers entering the field.

About the authors

Massimiliano Materazzi is a Research Associate and lecturer of Process Engineering and Fluid-Particle Systems at University College London (UK). Massimiliano Materazzi’s research and professional activity is mainly oriented to several aspects of Waste-to-Energy technologies, with particular attention given to thermal treatments (combustion, gasification and pyrolysis) of different fuel and wastes, design and operation criteria of fluidized bed reactors for industrial application, (including nuclear and renewable energy sectors) and reaction engineering for Biofuel and BioSNG synthesis.
