The following report and projects were completed as a fulfillment of funds provided to AFIT by AFCEC. Each of the projects were based on the central idea of Waste-to-Energy gasification as a method of waste diversion for the DoD. To help model the problem, computational programs such as Aspen Plus and SimaPro were used in addition to techno-economic and life-cycle analysis methods. A complete gasification system based on a deployed recipe was modeled using Aspen Plus to help determine its viability. Contacts were formed with other related agencies including DOE NETL, DLA, and Sierra Energy Inc. This opens the door for future collaborations and more extensive projects in the field. Two papers, currently in editor review, were written to help expand the field of knowledge related to WTE.
- Solid Wastes and Pollution and Control
- Electric Power Production and Distribution
