Advanced Gasification history

Many of today's problems with waste - plastics, organics, GHGs and more  - can be solved through Advanced Gasification.  It recycles waste into usable, valuable products, potentially diverting up to ≈97% of landfill waste and generating clean, green energy.

Since most governments and businesses need help planning for and implementing the best solutions, Pivotal can not only sell or develop systems, but can help assess needs and plan solutions.  We focus on maximizing value, assessed using Integrated Resource Management ["IRM"] - a full life cycle assessment model and advanced Triple Bottom Line business case.


A community planned to pump an average 598 wet tonnes per day of slurried biosolids approximately 20km to an energy centre comprising an anaerobic digester, dryers and an incinerator.  The equivalent IRM approach using an Advanced Gasifier was evaluated by independent engineers, but not evaluated financially.  Using Pivotal's IRM approach the overall life cycle total net costs worked out at $655m more expensive for the proposed anaerobic digestion solution.  Both resource recovery and GHG reduction is better with an IRM approach.  Pivotal partnered with companies valued at approaching C$20bn to guarantee the solutions and reduce the cost.  The projected GHG reduction of using Advanced Gasification is more than 10 times the savings from the proposed anaerobic digestion solution, at a fraction of the cost.  The proposal is pending a decision.
