    Waste recovery for petrochemical wastes

    Traditionally, the Petrochemical Sector has operated with basic technological solutions, with ultimate reliance on High Temperature Incineration (HTI) and landfill in order to deal with their hazardous wastes. However, tightening regulation, increasing landfill costs and social responsibilities are driving companies to look at alternative methods of treatment of very challenging wastes, including the treatment of:

  • Bioenergy

  • Waste recovery for organic wastes e.g. PCBs & Dioxins - Energy - Bioenergy

    Waste recovery for organic wastes e.g. PCBs & Dioxins

    Tetronics` technology destroys organic wastes including Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and other types of Persistent, Bio‐accumulative, and Toxic (PBT) pollutants at very high efficiencies across a wide range of concentrations.

  • Energy Utilities

    Waste recovery for energy & utilities

    In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental...

    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large...

    Waste Management Solutions for Metal Manufacturing Industry

    There are several challenges faced by the metal manufacturing industry. Firstly, there is a drive to recover as much metal credit as possible before disposal of by-products as wastes. Secondly, there is a requirement to minimise waste generation or alternatively minimise the costs of managing the disposal of any hazardous waste material generated during the manufacturing process. Finally, keeping the company competitive by generating value or by reducing costs in the manufacturing process. Any solutions that...

    Waste Management Solutions for Metal Refining

    Metal refining is increasingly seen as an essential part of natural resource conservation As sources of primary metals become scarcer or harder to excavate, the only viable solution is to extract and recycle secondary source of material already in circulation in a number of mass produced consumer products across the globe. The challenge is finding a technology that can efficiently recover these valuable metals from their less valuable materials. Tetronics can assist with a range of metal refining challenges,...

    Waste recovery for glass manufacturing

    Tetronics` twin torch system has been used continuously for the commercial production of high quality silica glass for optical applications since 1992. Tetronics’ unique twin torch technology allows a plasma arc to be created in space, which enables a falling stream of high quality silica powder to be melted at the junction of the two arcs to form an ingot of high optical quality silica glass. By using plasma as a clean and controllable heat source, the product has a high degree of integrity, because the absence...

    Waste recovery for construction industry

    Construction waste consists of unwanted material produced directly or incidentally by the construction industry. This includes materials that may contain lead, asbestos or other hazardous materials. There is increasing pressure on the construction industry to dispose of this hazardous material in an environmentally responsible manner. Tetronics can help alleviate this pressure by providing waste recovery plants to deal with all types of hazardous wastes generated from a construction projects lifespan: from...

    Waste Management Solutions for Mining Wastes

    Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on...
