Simdean Envirotec launch new plasma-based waste destruction system into Ireland
The controversy over hazardous waste incineration continues. To some it’s an important waste management process while to others it’s a threat to public health and the environment.
But now a pioneering new plasma-based hazardous waste destruction system looks set to change everything. Launched into Ireland and the UK by industrial pollution and odour control specialists Simdean Envirotec, the new system totally destroys waste contaminants whilst reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and cutting costs.
Developed in Israel by EST Limited, the patented plasma technology utilises high temperatures (2000°C – 4500°C) to instantaneously destroy a wide range of organic and inorganic wastes, leaving behind only the constituent atoms. These are then transformed into a mix of non-hazardous gas for emission into the atmosphere and usable by-products. The system is equally effective in treating wastes in the form of liquids, slurry or contaminated gases.
The system, which can also be configured as a mobile installation, integrates into the client’s production line, eliminating the need to transport or store waste products, which is hugely expensive, complicated and damaging to the environment. The process, which can easily be modified and calibrated to suit any production line, is safe, user-friendly and simple to operate. Emissions from the system at the end of the process are well within all international standards and regulations.
Although the process has been developed in particular for the pharmaceutical and fine chemical sectors, it also has applications in the oil, gas and chemical plant industries. Combining exceptional process efficiency with environmental benefits, lower capital costs, lower operating costs and lower maintenance costs, it delivers significant advantages over all other known treatment systems.
