Gasification of Non-Recycled Plastics (American Chemistry Council)

GBB compiled an inventory of the major existing gasification technologies and analyzed the possibilities and barriers for utilization of postconsumer plastics as feedstock for gasification plants. GBB described possible circumstances that allow gasification to fit within different waste management scenarios in the U.S. and identified public policy drivers or components that have the potential to propel gasification adoption forward. Communities in the U.S. that have included and/or are in the process of integrating the use of gasification technologies into their waste management systems were highlighted and the attributes of a model community for the adoption of gasification were identified.
