How is Plasco Different?
Plasco’s non-incineration process is fundamentally different than any competing thermal technology. Rather than using plasma torches directly on the garbage, Plasco uses plasma only to refine the gases released from the gasification of the waste in an oxygen-starved conversion chamber. With the torches interacting only with the gas, there is limited electricity demand. In the process, garbage is converted into a synthetic gas that is then used to run internal combustion engines. The Plasco process results in net energy production while converting 95% of waste to clean, valuable products.
Because the garbage is gasified and not burned, the multiple and costly pollution abatement systems required by incinerators can be replaced with single string units that yield class-leading environmental performance. The result is ultra-low emission engine exhaust that will meet or beat the world’s toughest environmental standards.
A Plasco facility requires NO capital investment from your community.
