Ansari, Mazhar Husain (2013) Simulation of effects of various parameters in solid waste gasification in a fixed bed reactor. BTech thesis.
With the enormous amount of solid waste being produced on a daily basis in different municipal corporations, its usage as another form of valuable raw material for the production of combustible fuel is of great interest to the scientific community. The solid waste can be treated appropriately for the generation of clean fuel, as well as it reduces the burden to dispose of the material in a environment friendly manner. Thus the extraction of all the valuable gases from the solid waste which can help in meeting the ever rising energy demands. Our model is based on the fixed bed type of reactor, the simulation of which is done using the very dynamic and useful software- Aspen plus. The fixed bed used here is an updraft type one with the following section: Drying, Pyrolysis, Gasification and Combustion. The performance of the reactor is to be investigated for carbon conversion at different gasification temperature, pressure, air equivalence ratio, and heat conversion efficiencies.
