Why Tetronics plasma solutions?

Tetronics is a leading environmental company with 50 years’ global experience delivering clean plasma technology for maximum resource recovery and the highest levels of hazardous material destruction.

A fresh approach to resource recovery and hazardous material treatment

Resource recovery and hazardous waste management needn’t be a problem. Our technology is used to transform these materials into a safe inert product (recovering value if present) not to ‘dispose’ of it. We see everything as having an opportunity for a closed loop lifecycle. Societies discard items at a particular stage, yet that isn’t the end of the material. Most have the potential to be reused, recovered or recycled in some form in order to generate further value; so allowing the resource to effectively become an ‘urban mine’. With waste being the only global resource not in decline, it makes sense that we change our behaviour to extend the lifecycles of our resources and maximise their value – a more sustainable and future friendly approach.

Our Vision

To enable a thriving planet for future generations, while making it financially beneficial for companies, shareholders and governments to make responsible choices for the environment and for generations to come.

Our Mission

To offer economically stable and viable methods of recovering resources from waste. Using our industry-leading technology and experience to deliver maximum resource recovery and the highest levels of hazardous material destruction.

Proud to be the most experienced plasma company in the World.

Tetronics was established in 1964 to develop industrial and metallurgical applications for high temperature Direct Current (DC) Plasma Arc technology.Over the past 5 decades, it has developed an established reputation for producing high quality clean plasma technology for maximum resource recovery and the highest levels of hazardous material destruction.

90 installations globally

Tetronics’ experience in material recovery processes and environmental waste treatment for a range of resource rich, toxic and hazardous and industrial waste has resulted in 90 commercial treatment facilities being installed and commissioned across four continents around the globe.Many of these facilities have been operating for years in some of the most challenging industrial environments across a wide and varied range of applications. Tetronics continues to work in association with many of these customers in developing upgrade improvements and providing specialist advice as well as spares and service.

Tetronics technology currently has 109 patents either granted or pending across 12 families. Furthermore, all Tetronics’ facilities and operations are accredited with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, certified by BSI and ANAB.

Tetronics International is a global leader in the supply of Waste Recovery Plants. We have the capability to manage the complete deployment lifecycle of a Waste Recovery Plant from initial testing of the waste material at Tetronics’ test facility, the most comprehensive in Europe, through to the physical onsite installation of a full commercial plant, and subsequent support and maintenance.

Tetronics’ patented Direct Current (DC) Plasma Arc plant technology provides the closest solution to Zero Waste currently available. This “green” sustainable alternative for waste management uses ultra-high temperatures to melt, gasify or vaporize any waste material, in order to treat, recover or generate useful commercial products.

As a pioneer in using plasma technology for waste treatment, our multi-faceted, highly qualified research and engineering team have applied the technology to an unrivalled range of waste challenges. Our technology has been tried and tested over five decades and has been used globally in more than 80 plants across a wide and varied range of applications.

These applications include, but are not limited to: transforming hazardous waste into environmentally safe building aggregate, recovering precious metals from spent catalysts, recovering energy from waste oil, reducing the volume of radioactive materials and improving the quality and efficiency of steel production.
