Zero-Co2 Waste Incinerator: A System for Carbon Dioxide-Free Waste Combustion

28 Pages Posted: 8 Sep 2023

Abstract

In this work, we demonstrate the concept of an incinerator that allows for the efficient and environmentally friendly disposal of wastes and does not produce CO2 emissions in the process. We show that this concept is energetically favorable from the perspective of chemical and physical processes and is procedurally feasible. The technological innovation involves combining complete waste combustion in pure oxygen (oxy-fuel combustion) and the thermal splitting of CO2 with simultaneous separation of the reaction products through centrifugal force. We confirmed our method experimentally and showed that the reaction kinetics in the centrifugal field differ greatly from the reaction kinetics in static areas since heavy reaction products are removed continuously from the reaction zone due to centrifugal force. Incineration takes place in a closed cycle, and the end products are solid slag and solid carbon. Large chimneys are not needed, and both large-scale plants and small, efficient and environmentally friendly incinerators, which can be installed directly where the waste is produced, can be built.
