On September 12, 2013, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) announced the publication of a new in-depth report, prepared by GBB, that evaluates how gasification, an emerging set of technologies that could potentially convert large-scale municipal solid waste into energy, could fit into waste management planning in North America.
The report, entitled “Gasification of Non-Recycled Plastics from Municipal Solid Waste in the United States,” was prepared with municipalities, investors and waste managers in mind with a focus on identifying challenges and opportunities for stakeholders. The report highlights that there are currently 21 demonstration facilities being operated in the United States and another 17 commercial-scale facilities under development. It also offers an overview of gasification technologies, feedstock flexibility, outputs and economics, licensing companies, experience with gasification technologies, opportunities and barriers to commercialization, and the potential role of gasification in integrated waste management systems.
