Toxicity Assessment of Gasification Process
Like incineration, the gasification process produces emissions, including air emission (acid gases, dioxins and furans, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, particulates, etc.), solid residue (inert mineral ash, inorganic compounds, and unreformed carbon), and water (used to wash the original waste in pre-treatment and clean the syngas). In order to evaluate their effects on human health, we develop various models (human primary cells or cell lines from liver/kidney/lung, human mesenchymal stem cells, zebrafish/fly model) and check the toxic effects on cell viability, morphology and functionality accordingly.
