The RAPSODEE Center at the Albi-Carmaux Ecole des Mines, which was founded 12 years ago, is contributing its skills and expertise in studying and modelling pyrolysis and gasification phenomena at the molecular level to the Gaya Project.
RAPSODEE is researching the pyrolysis, combustion and gasification processes. The focus of its research is the waste-to-energy recovery of “complex” solid fuels while limiting their emissions. The Center has partnered the European LIFTOFF project with a view to setting up a wood gasification unit in Denmark as part of a co-generation application, and the CNRS Biomasters joint initiative, as well as the French National Research Agency’s CINE-HT Project. It has equipped itself with cutting-edge experimental resources and analytical resources, which enable it to analyze solids.
