Flow back and produced waters in the oil field are heavily laden with contaminates including insoluble iron sulfides, poisonous hydrogen sulfide, residual gels, friction reducers, and other chemicals. In this paper, we will look at chlorine dioxide (ClO2) as one possible solution to these problems. As a powerful yet selective oxidizer, Cl02 has the ability to break up the residual gels and friction reducers while removing the insoluble iron sulfide and killing the hydrogen sulfide. As an additional plus, Cl02 is an EPA approved biocide that kills the bacteria which are the root cause of many of the problems with water reuse. Source

Biomass gasification is basically the conversion of wood and agricultural residues into a combustible gas, which is used as a fuel to drive a generator. There are many different gasification methods in use or in development, but the downdraft fixed-bed technology is almost exclusively used for small-scale power gasifiers. A recent study from Sri Lanka reports on a 12 kW gasification plant which provides electricity for 27 families, with considerable savings in kerosene. However, the installation of the machinery took a long time and the operation of the plant is laborious. Furthermore, compared to other renewable energy technologies gasification proved to be expensive, about 30%-40% higher than those for a micro-hydro power plant or solar home systems installed in the region. While in Asia many gasifier plants are or have been in operation, there seems to be little on the ground in Africa. Source
