The GIPO Process

The GIPO Process

The GIPO Process takes in MSW, Sewage, Medical Waste and Agricultural Waste and cleanly and economically processes it to energy without incineration.

The GIPO Plant is a waste to energy processor that has off the shelf technology built around the patent pending GIPO Process.  Any type of wet carbon based waste such as paper, plastics, food, wood, fabric, sewage, and medical waste can be processed into energy.  As it is producing electricity, the GIPO Process reduces the waste stream by 95% cleanly and economically.

The waste is collected and sorted to remove as much of the non-carbon based material as possible; this sorting does not have to remove all such material.  The waste is ground and mixed to create slurry containing between 60% and 80% water.  The slurry is stored in tanks and heated before entering the Devolitization Reactor.  This reactor converts the slurry into high pressure steam and a carbon rich material called bio-char. The bio-char is introduced into the gasifier which converts the bio-char into syn-gas and an elemental ash.  The syn-gas is used to power either a fuel cell or a gas engine electrical generator.  Waste heat from the prime energy engine is used to power the GIPO Process.  The amount of heat generated is sufficient that additional steam can be produced to power steam turbines for more electricity production.
