The Road to Shanghai

It was an uneventful flight from Japan to China today. Once in China, and on the road to Shanghai, we witnessed a couple unusual sights that reminded us of how different life is here. Nonetheless, we were awed by the endless high rise buildings that are home to the 16 million people here. We had a late introduction and dinner meeting with a boiler and a turbine manufacturer and also the design engineers of the waste to energy plant we will visit tomorrow. That plant does not gasify the waste, instead it incinerates it. What we will see relevant to our desired process is the sorting steps they use at that facility and the production of syngas from MSW and the production of power from that syngas.
