The market is expected to grow from 653 units in 2016 to 804 units in 2021 at a CAGR of 5.0% for the period 2015-2021. - The global market for plasma applications of new gasifiers is expected to grow from 16 units in 2016 to 24 units in 2021, a CAGR of 7.0% for the period 2015-2021. GASIFICATION Gasification is a technology by which thermal breakdown is accomplished in a controlled, oxygen-starved atmosphere. The final products are gases, which can further be cleaned and then burned to produce energy, thus controlling and reducing toxic by-products while improving the efficiency of energy capture. The process is more efficient than direct incineration and produces significantly lower emissions and waste, and the syngas can be shaped into products for power production, the chemical industry, liquid fuels or heat.
