Integration of Fertilizer Production and Electricity Production with Gasification and Oxidation of Carbonaceous Materials

The use of carbonaceous materials with supercritical water can be used for production of fertilizer and electricity. Gasification and oxidation can be used in this process and can be used in multiple applications. It is important to generate a system that will be efficient and minimize the creation of useless byproducts. Generally speaking, this technology adds value to supercritical water oxidation and gasification processes by producing fertilizer and energy.

Researchers at the University of Missouri have worked to create a novel way to produce energy and fertilizer though oxidation and gasification processes. All attributes of the process will be taken into account and purities will be eliminated to ultimately drive a fuel cell for electricity production.

POTENTIAL AREAS OF APPLICATIONS:
-Energy production
-Fertilizer production

MAIN ADVANTAGES OF INVENTION:
-Adds value of streams of the SCWG&O process
-Establishes a set purity to drive fuel cell

STATE OF DEVELOPMENT:
-Prototype completed
-Operational tests and additional data to come

FURTHER R&D REQUIRED
-Further optimization is to be done regarding the separation of the germanium oxide from the arsenic product
