  • Patent number: 8647401
    Abstract: A gasification system and method for converting organic materials into a usable syngas are provided. The gasification system includes a kiln for receiving a feedstock; a means for heating the kiln; a steam reforming reactor; and means for inductively heating the steam reforming reactor to drive the gasification reactions. In one preferred embodiment, the fuel processing system includes a steam reforming reactor that is at least partially filled with thermal transmitters which receive electromagnetic energy and generate heat within the steam reforming reactor. The organic material to be used as feedstock may include but will not be limited to petrochemical streams, refinery streams, natural gas, crude oil, coal, plastics, municipal wastes, toxic and hazardous wastes, biomass, medical wastes, and automobile wastes. The syngas that is produced in this process may consist primarily of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and methane.

  • Publication number: 20100237289
    Abstract: An infectious waste treatment system and method provided for treating waste material wherein the waste material is reduced and rendered decontaminated and unrecognizable thereby facilitating the disposal of infectious waste or potentially infectious waste materials. The treatment system is utilized for thermomechanically treating and processing all types of waste material. The treatment system includes a container processing unit in communication with a disinfection unit. The container processing unit is used to receive the waste materials in containerized form and convert the waste material into a usable medium for the disinfection unit. The disinfection unit comprises a system which drives a thermomechanical process wherein the waste material is rendered decontaminated and unrecognizable. The treatment system may be operated effectively without the presence of chemical disinfectants, steam, or radiation.
