W2 Energy Inc., the developer of a GAT (Gliding Arc Tornado) plasma reactor for gasification for power and fuels generation, and Better World Energy of Thailand are forming a joint venture to build one waste-to-energy plant which will convert 40 tons of municipal waste into electricity and 70 cetane synthetic diesel. This is the second such JV W2 Energy has announced this month. (Earlier post.)
The plants will use W2 Energy’s proprietary plasma and gas-to-liquid technologies and Better World Energy’s expertise in developing waste-to-energy plants.
The joint venture will pay W2 Energy for design, construction, delivery and commissioning of the waste-to-energy plant, which will produce approximately 100 barrels of synthetic diesel per day and will have a 5 MW steam turbine for electricity production.
Earlier, W2 Energy and TecFuels, LLC announced a joint venture to build one waste-to-energy plant which will convert 40 tons of bituminous coal and agricultural waste into electricity and 70 cetane synthetic diesel.
