PhD position - Study of solid waste gasification

SL-DRT-18-0879

RESEARCH FIELD

Mechanics, energetics, process engineering

ABSTRACT

The objective of the thesis is to study the gasification of solid wastes with high energetic content in relation with their physical and chemical characteristics, by using an analytical approach of gasification reaction study.Indeed, some solid wastes that cannot be recycled through material reprocessing could be energetically valorised by gasification, thus producing a synthesis gas for cogeneration or for synthesis of liquid or gaseous fuels. Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) which is a mixture of plastics, wood, papers, cardboards, textiles and foams, is a source material of interest, but largely less studied than biomass in gasification.The proposed approach will consist in simulating the SRF by some model materials, in analytically characterising their conversion alone or in blends in conditions representative of gasification reactors, so as to draw a model of their chemical transformations. At last, recommendations shall be given concerning optimised gasification conditions as a function of SRF categories, or on blend compositions.The thesis will be performed in collaboration between CEA-LITEN and the Ecole des Mines d’Albi, both recognized for their studies on biomass thermochemical conversion, now enlarged to waste one. The thesis will gather a large experimental part, using analytical tools available at CEA and at Mines d’Albi, a theoretical part, and a modelling part based on tools developed at CEA.
