Distretto Circolare Verde

When a hydrocarbon undergoes complete combustion, carbon dioxide, water, heat and a series of micropollutants that are harmful to health are created. Electricity is normally produced using the heat that it generates. In contrast, NextChem’s chemical conversion technology is based on a process of partial oxidation, which is stopped at the stage where carbon monoxide and hydrogen (called syngas) are generated. The syngas then undergoes an acid and basic wash to remove all solid contaminants. The final result of the process is a vitrified residue made from the inert fraction that can be found in the treated materials, such as traces of sand and metals. There is not a production  of micropollutants harmful to health (atmospheric emissions are insignificant).
