The PRME technology has tremendous potential for widespread application worldwide. The versatility, modularity and ruggedness of the PRME gasifier make it highly suitable for energy development in remote areas of developing countries as well as developed nations. This conclusion is supported by a joint project between PRME and Citizens Power and Light Company of Boston, MA., to study the feasibility of private sector development of biomass to electricity projects in India. This study was co-funded by Winrock International and USAID.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS OF THE TECHNOLOGY

Gasification of the following:

To Produce:

  • wood and wood waste
