The 2022 International Freiberg Conference on Waste Gasification – Syngas & Hydrogen from Challenging Secondary Feedstock will take place as physical event from 19-21 September 2022 in Freiberg, Germany.

Waste gasification offers an alternative to incineration and landfilling for the large quantities of mixed, unsorted, contaminated and challenging waste fractions which are not suitable for mechanical recycling or pyrolysis. In enabling the use of such carbon-containing waste fractions as alternative feedstock to conventional resources (i.e. crude oil, natural gas, coal) for chemical production, it has the potential to make a substantial contribution to the transition towards a low carbon, circular and hydrogen economy. Moreover, the integration of renewable electricity in gasification also enables a lowering of the CO2 footprintand facilitates the storage of energy in products.

Despite this potential, numerous socio-technological-economical-ecological-political questions and issues associated with the development and project deployment of waste gasification remain to be answered/resolved.

The event focuses on the opportunities, challenges and developments in thermo-chemical conversion of a wide range of challenging carbon-containing waste streams into synthesis gas and/or hydrogen for chemical utilization.
