Plasma Gasification converts MSW to a usable synthesis gas, or syngas. It is the production of this syngas which makes gasification so different from gasification. In the plasma gasification process, the MSW is not a fuel, but a feedstock for a high temperature chemical conversion process. In the gasifier, the MSW reacts with little or no oxygen, breaking down the feedstock into simple molecules and converting them into syngas. The syngas produced by plasma gasification can be turned into higher valuable commercial products such as transportation fuels, chemicals, and fertilizers.
