Basically, we are trying to develop a gasification system to convert organic waste (tires, mixed municipal waste, medical waste, etc.) into mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide (synthesis gas). The waste is compressed and inserted into a molten iron bath where the waste is supposed to thermally disassociate. This is not a new idea, but we hope to improve the process. I am concerned about producing gas at too high a rate, such that the gas leaving the molten bath has a linear velocity that causes splashing.
