Material Handling Advantages
The thermal transformer does not discriminate among various types of waste. Materials such as silica, glass, soil, rocks, concrete, metals, and any carbon-based waste are all processed uniformly and require no sorting.
Inventory of waste material is securely stored inside the building and undergoes cycling every 3-4 days.
Clean Every Night:
Waste material is promptly removed from the tipping floor to the storage area within a few hours, ensuring an empty tipping floor each night.
Practical & Aesthetic Advantages
All equipment, material handling systems, and the tipping floor are housed within an aesthetically pleasing building.
The plant can be strategically located in an industrial area of the city, substantially reducing freight costs to landfills and minimizing the number of garbage trucks required. The plant can also be situated adjacent to the city's sewage treatment facility to process sludge. Furthermore, it can be positioned at former landfills for the processing of landfill gas or land reclamation.
The plant has the capability to accept waste shipments via railcars or barges, enabling the facility to process waste from other regions and generate additional income.
Virtually any form of waste can be processed, whether solid, liquid, or gas, with the exception of nuclear material. This encompasses but is not limited to MSW, auto shredder residue, coal fines, medical waste, hazardous waste, sludge, oily water, tank bottoms, landfill gas, dioxins, PCBs, pesticides, paint, tires, contaminated soil, incinerator ash, and more.
The conversion rate of waste to salable products exceeds 99%, making it the ultimate recycling system.
Waste is transformed into valuable products, including electricity, ethanol, vitrified glass, metal, and sodium bisulfite. Molten metals are separated for recycling. Additional valuable derivative products can also be produced. Non-carbon-based materials like silica, rocks, concrete, soil, glass, gravel, minerals, etc., are vitrified or thermally fused into glass by the thermal transformer.
- Reduces Costs and Risks Associated with Landfills
- Additional Source of Revenue
- Stimulates Your Local Economy
- Creates Jobs
- Keeps Money at Home
- Reduces Petroleum Dependence
- Helps Meet Alternative Fuel Mandates
- Eliminate Landfills:
This process generates no residual waste, thereby eliminating the need for new landfills.
The risk of contaminated groundwater is eliminated.
- Render Incinerators Obsolete:
Existing incinerator plants can be retrofitted into our process, eliminating ash disposal and emissions problems inherent with incinerators.
- Air and Water Emissions Below EPA Standards
- Recovered Energy:
The energy produced by the process (electricity or ethanol) is reclaimed from discarded materials.
