  • Plasma Methods for Technology Processing of Toxical Industrial Wastes

    Experimental study of thermal neutralization of some toxic chlorine and bromine industrial wastes, as well as of pesticides with a expired term of validity was carried out in the three-jet plasma reactor . Different physical-chemical methods were used for analysis of products of waste processing. It was shown that plasma technology provides effective processing of toxic ...


  • Let’s talk plasma

    Usually when I attend a conference on behalf of Tetronics I am about the average age of the other delegates. Not this time. Suddenly, I am old enough to be the father of most of the other people here, because this is a university-based conference hosted by the University of Liverpool. Yes, this is the snappily-titled International Workshop on Plasmas for Energy and Environmental Applications, or ...

  • The Plasma Processing of Steel Plant Wastes

    ABSTRACT: Electric arc furnace (EAF) dusts, have been successfully treated in plasma-fired carbothermic reduction furnaces to recover metal values. Although the technology is equally applicable across the range from plain carbon to stainless steels, historically, it is the latter that has been the more commercially successful. Because the plasma heat source is independent of process chemistry, ...

  • Odour control with Direct Cold Plasma

    Odour emission during the production or processing of food and feed is often an unwelcome side effect. However, by using cold plasma technology, the smell can be reduced up to 95%. Increasingly, feed manufacturers are being required to address the issue of emitting of odour and harmful contaminants into the surrounding community. Local communities, special interest groups and government ...

  • Plasma gasification: Harnessing the power of lightning

    Plasma gasification is both a high-tech solution to the problem of waste management and a source of renewable power. The technology has great potential, but can it move from the fringes to the mainstream? The name "plasma gasification" conjures up images of men in lab coats late at night, investigating a far-flung corner of science that is light years away from commercial readiness. In reality it ...


  • CIWM Feature: Plasma Power - Dr Deegan gives a flavour of what plasma technology can offer

    Sustainability… what does this mean? It is often a term that means many different things to different people and organisations based on their perspective. When examined in detail, the definition is quite complex, something that Chartered Environmentalists will be more than familiar with. It is also something that is linked into addressing concerns around the subjects of strategic ...

  • Waste Advantage Magazine- The use of Thermal Plasma Technology for treating APC Residues

    The  growth in Energy from Waste plant capacity is leading a corresponding increase in the generation of Air Pollution Control (APC) Residues, making it one of the fasted growing waste sectors in the UK. In this article published in Waste Advantage Magazine, Dr Tim Johnson from Tetronics discusses how plasma technology is one solution to this ...

  • Garbage to Gold: Breakthrough Technology Uses Plasma to Convert Waste to Useable Products

    A breakthrough technology that uses high-temperature thermal plasma to turn household garbage into a renewable energy source, scrap metal and mineral wool is attracting worldwide attention for Huntsville-based Plasma Waste Recycling. […]  The PWR process doesn"t involve combustion, but a gasification process that is ...


  • Plasma resource recovery technology –converting waste to energy and valuable products

    Abstract Plasma Resource Recovery (PRR) is a revolutionary technology that can treat virtually any type of waste by combining gasification with vitrification. Vitrification produces inert slag that can be used as a construction material. Gasification produces a fuel gas containing carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2), used for cogeneration of electricity and steam. The plasma fired ...

  • The use of thermal plasma technology for treating air pollution control residues

    Energy from waste (EFW) is an exciting industry to be in right now in the UK. As pointed out by Euston Ling and Dr. Adam Read's article "The Shifting Landscape for Renewable Energy in the UK" {Waste Advantage Magazine, June 2011), the EFW capacity in the UK is set to grow strongly in the next 10 years, with some commentators predicting a three-fold increase in EFW capacity from the current 4 ...

  • Thermal Plasma Technology Supports Precious Metal Recovery from WEEE

    The article provides an overview of the history of electrical wastes, where we are today and the potential value that can be generated from recovering the valuable precious metals it contains going forward.   The article also discusses how Tetronics’ patented DC Plasma technology has been successfully employed in a wide range of environmental applications including Precious Metal ...

  • New applications of beam–plasma systems for the materials production

    Beam–plasma systems (BPS) are known to be a great prospect for the surface modification of organic and inorganic materials. The present paper considers the plasma–assisted synthesis and deposition from the point of view of the hybrid materials production. Pilot setups in which the above processes occur in the electron–beam plasma (EBP) and combined plasma (CP) are described. The results of the ...

  • Decomposition of benzene by non-thermal plasma processing: Photocatalyst and ozone effect

    Plasma technology has some shortcomings, such as higher energy consumption and byproducts produced in the reaction process. However non-thermal plasma associated with catalyst can resolve these problems. Therefore this kind of technology was paied more and more attention to treat waste gas. A hybrid system comprising a non-thermal plasma reactor ...

  • Nonthermal Plasma Applications to the Environment: Gaseous Electronics and Power Conditioning

    Abstract—For nearly two decades, interest in gas-phase pollution control has greatly increased, arising from a greater respect for the environment, more attention to the effects of pollution, and a larger body of regulations and laws. Nonthermal plasma (NTP) technology shows promise for destroying pollutants in gas streams and cleaning contaminated surfaces, using plasma-generated reactive ...

  • 25 Years of Success – Outokumpu Stainless DC Plasma Smelting Facility

    Design is not just what is looks and feels like. Design is how it works. Between 1982 and 1987, British Steel (Outokumpu today) made extensive investigations into the treatment of steel dust. Their research was far and wide and covered off many various methods of recycling, including alternative to plasma technologies. But, in 1985, they engaged Tetronics International to carry out a ...
