Bradam's Process Overview
The Bradam patented process and facility design provide an environmentally responsible way to reform any organic waste into synthesis gas (“Syngas”) for production of electricity using turbines, pipeline grade renewable or synthetic natural gas (natural gas not from petroleum), hydrogen, or the Syngas can be converted to biofuels (diesel & jet fuel) using Fischer Tropsch technology.
The innovative process is a combustion-free chemical reduction process with no oxidation yielding a high quality BTU value Syngas, making it a radical departure from competing incineration and combustion processes currently on the market.

Bradam's Carbon Energy Recovery Process
Carbon Energy Recovery Process
One tonne of feedstock, with an energy density of 14.2 GJ/tonne (6100 btu/lb.*), using the Bradam SRP at ISO conditions produces (*average calorific value for most MSW):
- Electricity Export: 1 MW of electricity per tonne net
- RNG/SNG Export: 10 GJ of natural gas equivalent per tonne minimum net
Note: The amount of energy produced is in direct relationship to the calorific value of the waste stream, for example non-recyclable plastics with an energy density of 32 GJ/tonne will produce 22.92 GJ/tonne of SNG (synthetic natural gas).
Bradam's Carbon Energy Recovery Process - Decreasing Your Landfills.
The Bradam Carbon Energy Recovery system (CER) can process a wide range of feedstocks, alone or in mixtures – any organic or carbonaceous or carbon-based material, including the following:
- Municipal solid waste (“MSW”);
- Non-hazardous commercial wastes (plastics, wood, paper, food);
- Non-hazardous industrial waste;
- Bulk wastes (used mattresses/furniture);
- Digestate from anaerobic digesters, animal waste, biosolids, municipal/sewage sludge, pulp/paper sludge;
- Biomass and waste biomass (wood, forest residue, agricultural crop wastes, algae, sugar cane);
- Special industrial waste (medical waste, tires, paint);
- Existing landfills can be mined, approximately 80% of the landfill mass can be processed resulting in numerous acres to be reclaimed and developed into productive use for its citizens.
What goes into the Bradam CER process and what comes out of it?
The Bradam CER produces a high quality synthesis gas (SYNGAS), which contains significant levels of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane. Once the syngas is conditioned and ready for final use it can be used to produce electricity, pipeline grade renewable natural gas, pipeline grade synthetic natural gas, hydrogen for fuel cells and alternative fuels such as diesel and aviation fuel and chemicals.
The Bradam CER is a modular design, each module can process 50,000 tonnes of waste feedstock per year and produces 500,000 gigajoules of energy, 10,000 liters of water and 12,000 tonnes of clean aggregate that can be used as a filler in asphalt and concrete and also qualifies for LEED points. When our process is complete nothing ends up in a landfill.
Protecting You, Your Interests & Your Property Value
Bradam has designed its systems to be modular making it easy to match the size of the production capacity to the needs of the area it is servicing. Each process line or module has a nameplate capacity of 50,000 tonnes per year of waste processed. Each module has redundancy and uses components that are readily available from trusted suppliers.
