The HERU convert the status of the biologically-hazardous municipal wats to inert material that can be consumed, safely, as a fuel for domestic heating applications by using low temperature pyrolysis.
The outputs from the pyrolysis treatment are:
Char - Solid fuel that is safe to handle if produced from municipal waste and has a good calorific value when burned to generate heat energy.
Pyrolysis oil - The chemical analysis on the various compositions of the pyrolysis oil from various municipal waste configuration demonstrated potential commercial value for these oils and the possibility to convert it to liquid fuel for heating applications.
Gas - The amount of the emitted gas from the HERU is substantially small and its composition is that of syngases. When treating waste in large quantities, collecting the resulting gas maybe of a commercial value to use it as a gas fuel.
