Ortadoğu Group is making studies to assess low quality lignite which is found in abundance in our country through gasification in order to add it to the country’s economy. The disposal of the ash which is generated from directly burning this type of lignite and the cleaning of stack gas is difficult and expensive. The coal-like solid material rather than ash which is generated from the gasification method can be burned in places such as cement factories without needing any extra treatments.

Similarly, the stack gas which comes out after the synthetic gas, a gas product of the gasification method, is burned and its energy extracted, is a much cleaner gas compared to the gas which comes out of a flue in the direct burning method, and it can be released into the atmosphere with minimum purification.
