Technology Benefits

Plasma Enhanced Gasification system
  • Process waste “as received”- no presorting, preparation or size reduction -lower capital and maintenance costs
  • Increased power production / efficiency – 15 to 20% more power per ton of waste
  • Destruction of 99.99999% of hazardous components- only technology to achieve this per US EPA standards
  • Zero Landfill - Bottom ash/rejects are converted into toxic free non-leachable vitrified slag that can be reused as construction products
Catalytic Alcohol Synthesis Process (CASS)
  • With PEGS® as the front end alcohol synthesis is Feed agnostics
  • Can handle variety of feedstocks of any kind either separately or in any combination
  • No Need for separation of lignin from biomass
  • The alcohol produced is through thermo chemical route and hence a continuous process.
  • Smaller footprint and cost of production of alcohol highly competitive

Other Plasma Solutions

Mass Burn Incinerators

Thermal Conversion

Gasifcation Incineration or gasifcation Incineration
(excess air)

Feedstock

Any “raw” feedstock “as received” no prep Limited feedstock / Must sort and shred MSW, RMW only

Energy Conversion

Energy efficient, produce over 700 kWh / ton High gross production, but low net electricity Typical ~550 kWh / ton

Use of Plasma

High-quality syngas Melt residues N/A

Environmental Performance

Emissions far below EPA standards / inert byproducts Limited performance data Serious Issues due to Low Temperature

Economics

Profitable at ~250 TPD Requires huge subsidies Break-even at ~1,000 TPD

System Development

Successful pilot system ready for commercial operation Demonstration Unsuccessful Commercial operations in India unsuccessful
