SUT Infectious Waste Management Power Plant

The Infectious Waste Management Power Plant was constructed to eliminate all infectious wastes from the university’s hospital. The treatment capacity of the plant is about 3,000 kg. of infectious waste per day everyday. This power plant uses the gasification technology with a fixed-bed downdraft gasification type. The procedure begins with fueling on top and burn the waste by controlling air mass. Therefore, it creates incomplete combustion and fuel gas or Producer Gas. Solid waste fuel turns into gas that consists of Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrogen (H2), and Methane (CH4) with calorific value of 4.5-5.5 MJ/m3. The gas can be used as an alternative option to Petroleum or natural gas. After it has been cleansed and its temperature has decreased, can be a fuel to engine that generates electricity.
