Advantages and disadvantages

  • Can separate hazardous or complicated waste into usable fractions
  • Energetically efficient
  • Because we can reach 1500 degrees Celsius, it is possible to break down PFAS
  • Freeing up raw materials (solids and gas) from waste
  • Industrial process, not directly suitable for consumers
  • Waste treatment capacity Lab scale 5 to 15 kg/per day Pilot setup: 10 to 50 kg/h Demo (commercial): from 500 kg/h
  • Construction material The reactor consists of a core of refractory material and an envelope of steel.
  • Products Syngas, solids, salts from gas cleaning
  • Suitable for Waste now incinerated or permanently stored
