Can untreated syngas generated from municipal wastewater sludge be used
directly to generate power?  It is my understanding that the heating value
of untreated syngas (120 - 150 But/scf), is too low to feed directly to
engines and that some type of post treatment to boost the heating value to
190 -200 is typically economically prohibitive.   Any information on such
post treatment and an case studies were this has been done would be


Thank you,

Philip Pedros
