Background

With a 3,800 metric tonnes capacity per year, this gasification plant will take a mix of waste by-products from regional farmers during three harvest seasons of corn, wheat and cotton. Currently these materials are either incinerated or taken to landfill but once this project is commissioned, the waste will be formed into pellets, processed through EQTEC’s gasifier and converted into electricity which will be sold to the country’s grid system by the owner-operator, Agrigas Energy.
