Gasification is a flexible technology in terms of both inputs and outputs. While a typical Kyklos gasifier will take in MSW to produce electricity and biochar, gasification systems can be adjusted and optimized to serve a municipality both now and in the future.

Additional Applications: Headliner


Kyklos' partners offer a range of gasifiers adaptable to a variety of inputs, in addition to MSW. These can be combined and customized for a facility that addresses your municipality's specific needs.

Our partners are veterans in biomass gasification, with over 30 years of manufacturing experience. Biomass gasifiers can take in various kinds of agricultural and yard waste, both woody and fine.

Fecal sludge/sewage gasifiers take in wet waste and generate distilled water, steam, and power in the form of kWe. The gasifiers can run in sludge only mode or in sludge and MSW mode, which produces a higher ratio of electricity to distilled water.

Our partners have developed an innovative tire gasification system. The shredded tire input is converted into a producer gas that can be used for heat applications or combusted in a generator to produce electricity.


A typical gasifier takes in revenue from several sources. The primary revenue source is tipping fees for the waste input handled. Additional revenue streams come from sale of outputs: char and electricity. Gasification systems may be adjusted for other outputs as well, such as thermal energy and chemical products, which would create additional revenue streams.


Some gasifiers produce thermal energy for heat applications, either as their primary output or in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit alongside electricity. Generating thermal energy will create an additional revenue stream through sales for heat applications, including:

  • General heating/cooling

  • Greenhouse use

  • Autoclaving of PPE/medical waste

  • Industrial applications (ovens, furnaces, etc.)


Gasification can potentially be configured for a variety of chemical outputs, including hydrogen and ethanol. Applications for these chemical outputs are constantly in development, especially as their use for fuel becomes more common. For example, gasification could be adapted to produce hydrogen to serve a future hydrogen economy if so desired.
