Welcome to AGSyn!

AGSyn is dedicated to developing and supporting energy technologies that combine technical and economic practicality with social and environmental responsibility to forrm a sensible bridge to the energy economy of the future.  

The current world energy model is not sustainable using strictly non-renewable resources but, in fact, most non-renewable resources are actually renewable.  Carbon is an abundant and efficient energy carrier and we can now economically 're-use' our carbon waste resources using The ABA Process of plasma gasification.

About AGSyn -

AGSyn was created specifically to engineer, sell, integrate and support energetic, environmental and industrial solutions based on ABA plasma gasification technology. We are committed to deploying these revolutionary solutions to the marketplace and supporting them throughout their lifecycles. Our experience with the construction and design of complex industrial systems and the operation and control of the technologies and equipment which make make those systems possible, make us the ideal partner in the adoption and integration of these state of the art plasma gasification solutions.


Energy Problems - ABA Solutions

The ABA Process of plasma gasification offers a direct solution for our growing renewable energy needs. Its low acquisition costs, unparalleled energetic efficiency and variable feedstock options provide power generation that's renewable, scaleable and flexible and it plays a vital role in addressing the following issues:

-     Fossil Fuels: The harvesting of finite fossil fuel resources is messy, expensive and hazardous.
ABA Solution:  Gasification of carbonaceous waste streams (biomass, medical waste, wood process waste, tire, plastics,
municipal solid waste, etc) increases the available energy supply while decreasing the various waste volumes and associated problems and expense.

-    Combustion and post combustion pollution:  Pollution generated by burning fossil fuels is often worsened by contaminates in the fuel like mercury or sulfur and post combustion contaminates like fly ash and clinkers are difficult to isolate and dispose of.

-    ABA Solution:  By gasifying power plant input feedstock, contaminates can be removed prior to combustion vastly reducing or eliminating non-CO2 emissions, fly ash and other secondary solid wastes.

The Law of Conservation of Energy says: "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed: It can only be transformed from one state to another".  Since long after all of our fossil resources have been exhausted the planet will still have the same number of carbon atoms as it did 1,000 years ago, integrating the ABA Process into new and existing power generating infrastructures offers a logical way to close our wasteful open carbon carrying energy loop. 



Current 'Open' Carbon Cycle -

Hydrocarbons like petroleum products and coal are harvested, processed and then consumed (electrical power, liquid fuels, tires, plastics, asphalt, lubricants, etc.).  The resulting products as well as the waste generated by modern life are left to accumulate, potentially contaminating our water supply and leaching other hazardous materials into our environment. These 'dead end' carbon sources, which are currently expensive social and environmental liabilities, are themselves a carbon energy source which is currently not being adequately exploited.
Closing the Carbon Cycle - 

Syngas produced by the ABA Gasification of carbonaceous waste streams offers the same energetic flexibility of fossil sourced hydrocarbons. The syngas can be used to generate electrical power or create traditionally fossil sourced fuels, oils, waxes and lubricants.  Using the ABA Process also eliminates almost all non-CO2 byproducts of current hydrocarbon consumption by increasing fuel purity. By 'co-fueling' with existing fossil fuel products and renewably sourced hydrocarbons we can acheive a sustainable energy model.
