Transportable Gasifier for the Destruction of Contaminated Biomass
Foreign and domestic animal disease outbreaks have highlighted the impact of large-scale animal mortality on agriculture and the environment. These outbreaks have resulted from both natural causes and accidental releases. Such incidents demonstrate the potential consequences in the aftermath of an agricultural bioterrorism attack. Proper management of the post-event state will ensure public safety and security while mitigating the effect on the environment and the amount of time needed to restore public confidence in the commodities and agriculture markets. BGP, Inc. developed a transportable gasifier that provides a safe and effective means to dispose of large-scale animal mortalities and contaminated biomass through a unique continuous-feed, high-temperature gasification process. The system is mobile and can be transported on standard low-boy trailers for on-site sanitary and environmentally friendly destruction of contaminated biomass. BGP completed successful field evaluations of the transportable gasifier in FY 2009. The valuations focused on assessing environmental impact and biomass throughput.
