The Flash Pyrolysis Technology offers increased recycling rates to address environmental concerns to achieve government targets and to provide for higher profitability than that of competitive designs.

  • Very high calorific value gas – typically 22MJ/m3 (competitive systems less than 15MJ/m3).
  • High volume of gas and thus electrical energy – typically 1.1 MW per US ton for materials with nominal CV of 16 (competitive systems less than 0.7 MW).
  • Maximum use of energy with parasitic load of around 10% (competitive systems typically 25%).
  • No fines carry over to gas clean-up system.
  • No high temperature moving parts.
  • No gas leaks.
  • No char (all carbonaceous fraction converted).
  • Remainder of low grade heat is employed to preheat the air to the burners.
  • Pyrolyser exhaust provides heat to preconditioning system.
  • Ultra low emissions.
  • Purifying syngas is simpler and less expensive than cleaning flue gases from incineration.
  • Entire system can be pre-assembled to minimize site construction.

The Aerobic In-Vessel Composting System

a. In-vessel composting is an industrial form of composting biodegradable and organic waste and it occurs in an enclosed system. Air is circulated through the vessel, with the exhausted air being extracted through a bio-filter and returned back into the vessel.
b. This ensures that the process remains aerobic and therefore does not produce methane (anaerobic composting process) which is 22 times more harmful than CO2.
c. Offensive odours are caused by putrefaction of nitrogenous animal and vegetable matter gassing off as ammonia. This is controlled with a higher carbon to nitrogen ratio, or increased aeration by ventilation, and use of a coarser grade of carbon material to allow better air circulation. .
d. Any organic waste such as meat, fish and vegetables can be processed in the Comp-O-Skip.
e. Processing the waste on-site has its advantages too. There is less risk of spreading disease as the Comp-O-Skip is a sealed unit and in the aerobic process, reaches up to 60oC as well as the levels of Ammonia. Between these processes, pathogens are killed off. 
f. Pests such as rats and flies are controlled.
g. The microorganisms in compost break down organic matter into humus – the rich, dark substance that makes for an excellent mulch and feed for gardens.
h. Leachate (liquid) is also collected and can be diluted and applied as fertiliser enriching the soil.
i. The resulting output from this process is a fully composted organic compost that is safe to use in gardening, farming and other similar uses. It also has a reasonable resale value.
