The volume of gas obtained in the carbonisation process or gasification process expressed as m³/te (or ft³/ton) of the fuel feed. Reference conditions should be stated.


Methane Production Potential. ... In the anaerobic process, a certain amount of gas is produced per pound of volatile solids broken down or destroyed by the bacteria. This is referred to as "gas yield". ... Table 1. Potential gas production of swine, dairy, poultry and beef. ... Gas yield, cu. ft. per lb. volatile solids destroyed.


Comparison between the pyrolysis of two types of polyethylenes in a fluidized bed reactor. ... Methane, benzene and toluene formation was favored at high residence time. Ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, butane, butene, and pentane cracked to different extents with increasing residence time and/or temperature. Maximum total gas yield obtained at 800°C from branched polyethylene and less branched polyethylene in continuous operation is 91.8 and 97.5%, respectively.
