A plasma gasification combined cycle power plant or reciprocating WPC_Non_leaching-tableengine plant is very different than an incineration plant from an emissions standpoint. Where incineration technology combusts MSW to create energy, Westinghouse Plasma Corp. gasification technology uses extreme heat to break down the MSW to its molecular constituents including hydrogen and carbon monoxide, the two building blocks of syngas.

In a combined cycle or reciprocating engine use, syngas from a Westinghouse Plasma Corp. gasifier is cleaned up to a specification similar to natural gas. It's this clean syngas that is combusted in a gas turbine or reciprocating engine to create power. Emissions from using this sort of plant will likely be similar to a natural gas fired power plant.

Syngas, after clean-up can satisfy with the following specifications as shown in the table above.
