This New York Times article highlights ESTCP’s demonstration of a waste-to-energy technology, FastOx Pathfinder, that transforms trash into syngas, a combination of hydrogen and carbon monoxide that can be burned to generate electricity or made into ethanol or diesel fuel. The first-of-its-kind demonstration at Fort Hunter Liggett, a training base in Monterey County, California, will provide important cost and performance information to enable further adoption of this technology across the military and nationwide, with benefits including productive use of waste, improved energy security, and reduced costs.
