Civil Engineering Departmental Seminar - High-value utilization of thermochemical for organic solid waste 有机固废热化学高值利用

3:00pm - 4:00pm
Room 3574 (Lift 27/28), Civil Engineering Conference Room, HKUST

High-value utilization of thermochemical for organic solid waste

The clean and high-value utilization of combustible solid waste is a major way to improve the level of waste reuse and to build a waste recycling system. A systematic study on the thermal deconstruction and reconstruction of combustible solid waste for high-value utilization has been conducted. A multivariate and broad-spectrum thermal deconstruction reaction theory of combustible solid waste has been constructed. A series of distributed multivariate thermal conversion engineering equipment has been invented. A new mechanism of synergistic reaction enhancement and regulation has been proposed. A multivariate enhancement of internal and external sources of thermal treatment equipment has been developed. A new method of target reconstruction of pyrolysis products has been established. A series of modification and enhancement technologies and equipment for pyrolysis products have been developed. Based on these, the study on the method of high-value utilization of waste organic and inorganic hybrid materials is developing.
