    What is a Jet-Spouted Bed?

    The Jet Spouted Bed (JSB) is a robust fluidization method that is not been widely used in industry, although there are several key advantages compared to more traditional fluidization methods, such as the Bubbling Fluid Bed (BFB) and the Circulating Fluid Bed (CFB). For example, […]

    Reforming Carbon-Char with CO2 — Enriching Syngas with CO

    Taylor Energy proposes to resolve the problem of carbon-char waste produced during biomass gasification by reacting it with recycled carbon dioxide making useable carbon monoxide in a process called dry-reforming. Biomass derived carbon-char at 900 °C is a very reactive form of carbon, and we […]

    Jet Spouted Bed

    The video shows the Taylor Energy pilot-scale Jet Spouted Bed (JSB) in operation feeding biomass. The JSB is powered by a Pulse-Jet Burner (a pulse deflagration burner) that imparts momentum to the bed as hot exhaust gases flow into the bottom the bed at 300 […]

    Burner

    We are looking at the bottom section of the Taylor Energy gasification reactor. A Pulse-Deflagration-Burner, provided by Pulse Combustion Systems (PCS of Payson, Arizona,) is attached to the bottom of the gasifier and is used to input hot-air (or oxygen-enriched air) that is employed for […]

    Connecting

    The image below shows the feeding-section of our gasification reactor being hoisted into place by All Star Crane Company of Riverside, CA. The gasifier spool-sections were bolted together on the ground in groups of three or four sections, so the crane could easily lift the […]

    Burning out the refractory mold

    Taylor Energy is managing the design and construction of an integrated Gasification/Reforming system used to convert biomass and other carbon resources into synthesis gases. The system is constructed employing an outer steel shells with two internal layers of refractory lining; one that provides insulation, and […]

    Mother Earth Needs Our Help

    Modern engineered landfills are ok, environmentally speaking. On the other hand, burying MSW in any landfill is a huge waste of energy. For example, 1-ton of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) contains the same amount of energy in 2-barrels of oil. Third-world landfills are a nightmare […]
