Title (EN) INTEGRATED THΞRMOCHEMICAL AND BIOCATALYTIC ENERGY PRODUCTION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME DE PRODUCTION D'ENERGIE THERMOCHIMIQUE ET BIOCATALYTIQUE INTEGRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for treating organic wastes is provided, said apparatus comprising a fermenter, a distillation column and a gasifier. Organic wastes are separated into high and low moisture content organic waste streams. The low moisture content organic waste stream is subjected to a gasification process and generates a producer gas. The high moisture content organic waste is subjected to a fermentation process and produces a mixture of ethanol and water. Waste heat from the gasification process is subjected to a distillation column. Vapours recovered from the distillation column are mixed in a hydrous vapour form with the producer gas and produce fuel that can be used as an energy source .
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de traitement de déchets organiques. Des déchets organiques sont séparés en flux de déchets organiques à teneur en humidité faible et élevée. Le flux de déchets organiques à teneur en humidité faible est soumis à un processus de gazéification et génère un gaz de gazogène. Le flux de déchets organiques à teneur en humidité élevée est soumis à un processus de fermentation et produit un mélange d'éthanol et d'eau. La chaleur des déchets issue du processus de gazéification est soumise à une colonne de distillation. Les vapeurs récupérées à partir de la colonne de distillation sont mélangées sous une forme de vapeur aqueuse avec le gaz de gazogène et produisent du combustible qui peut être utilisé comme source d'énergie.
