  • 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, ...

  • 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 .

  • FAQ About Plasma Arc Gasfication Process from Plasma Waste Recycling, Inc (PWR)

    What is Municipal Solid Waste? Municipal solid waste (MSW)—more commonly known as trash or garbage—consists of everyday items such as product packaging, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, bottles, food scraps, newspapers, appliances, paint and batteries. It does not contain industrial, hazardous, or construction waste. Since 1980, the total annual volume of MSW generated in the U.S. has ...


  • 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 ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • 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 ...

  • Pyrolysis processing of used old tyres by thermal plasma technology

    Thermal plasma pyrolysis of used old tyres was studied in a nitrogen plasma reactor in order to evaluate the material and energy recycling potential. The main gaseous products from thermal plasma pyrolysis of used old tyres were identified by chromatography as H2, CO, CH4, C2H2, ...

  • 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 ...


  • Thermal plasma processing in the production of value added products from municipal solid waste (MSW) derived sources

    Abstract The disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is an increasingly difficult challenge for communities. Advanced thermal treatment (ATT) technologies, such as Gasplasma®, have been specifically developed to effectively utilise wastes to generate clean electrical power. An added beneficial feature of this process is the conversion of ash-type materials in the MSW to ...

  • A combined process of non-thermal plasma with sludge stabilization for the simultaneous reduction of odor and organic waste

    Odor emissions and sludge disposals have become most challenging issues in many sludge treatment plants, and separate chemical oxidation processes have been commonly employed for these problems. It is, therefore, necessary to develop a combined process that simultaneously reduces the odor emissions and the amount of waste sludge. In this study, a non-thermal plasma reactor using a dielectric ...

  • 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 Arc Waste Destruction System (PAWDS) - A novel approach to waste elimination aboard ships

    The Plasma Arc Waste Destruction System (PAWDS) uses plasma energy, with temperatures over 5,000 oC, to rapidly and efficiently destroy combustible waste aboard ships. PAWDS has proven itself to be a viable alternative to traditional incinerators. In September 2003, Carnival Cruise Lines were the first to install a PAWDS aboard their 2,056 passenger (plus 1,000 crew members) capacity, M/S ...

  • 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 ...

  • Treatment of ship sludge oil using a plasma arc waste Destruction system (PAWDS)

    The Plasma Arc Waste Destruction system (PAWDS) uses a plasma torch to quickly gasify solid  waste on board ships. Developed under the support of the US Navy, this compact one deck system has been in commercial operation on board a cruise ship for more than three years. With the support of Carnival Cruise Lines and the National Research Council of Canada, the PAWDS was recently modified in ...
