Global Gateways core technology enables a highly efficient gasification
of the organic feedstock (cellulose fiber), resulting in the generation
of a clean hydrogen rich gas with a high heating value, a
stable fuel gas which is suitable for energy generation in a combined
Global Gateways waste to energy plants are able to handle and treat
most types of waste in large quantities; including the most acidic types
of waste, providing local municipalities, farmers and industries with
the necessary flexibility and economies of scale to almost completely
eliminate landfills and reduce their waste treatment costs.
The process begins with the feedstock insertion into the pyrolysis
reactors, (first stage of the Fischer-Tropsch process) the combination of no oxygen within and the temperatures
ranging between 400ºC and 800ºC causes the carbonaceous feedstock
material to slowly decompose until a high energy fuel gas is generated.
Cracking: As a consequence of the previous pyrolysis process,
there will be some residual of oils and tars which are not completely
gasified, they are in this stage subjected to a cracking process very
similar to a refinery which break down the hydrocarbons into additional fuel gas.
The only other by-products after pyrolysis and cracking are a
carbon residue in the form of biochar and the removed impurities using
wet scrubbers. All acid components, sulfur, chlorine and heavy metals
Membranes & Steam Reformation: The fuel gas
generated by the pyrolysis and cracking process undergo further
treatment as it passes through membranes that seperate loong
and short hydrocarbon chains, where the longer hydrocarbon
chains undergo steam reformation thereby further increasing the hydrogen
portion of the gas as well as increase the final heating value of the
The end result is a hydrogen rich gas which is
environmentally cleaner and with a significantly higher heating value
compared to competing waste to energy processes.

Competitive Advantage: The main factors which give Global Gateways a competitive advantage over other technologies is:
Global Gateways technology is flexible and can handle any
type of feedstock within the same unit, without needing downtime to
adapt the equipment to a change of feedstock
Global Gateways technology have proven not to be sensible to the acid
content of waste as is the case with incinerators, thereby avoiding high
maintenance costs and downtime incurred by incinerators.
Global Gateways technology when compared to incineration reduces
emissions to a minimum and does not register emissions of the highly
toxic dioxins or furans associated to incineration of waste.
