  2. A Compact, Efficient Pyrolysis/Oxidation System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery in Space

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Both pyrolysis and oxidation steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Oxidation (incineration) produces a simpler product stream, but the oxidation of mixed solids is a complex u ...
