NORTHBROOK, Ill. and SHANGHAI, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAT International, Inc., ("PEAT") a leader in plasma-thermal waste destruction systems, announced the successful commissioning of a Plasma Thermal Destruction and Recovery ("PTDR") system in Shanghai, China. The 60 kg/hr system - designed for medical waste and oil refinery sludge - was installed for Abada Plasma Technology Holdings, Ltd. - an Asian-based renewable energy project developer.
PEAT's PTDR "single stage" plasma-thermal process transforms hazardous waste through molecular dissociation at 1,500°C (2,732°F) into recoverable, non-toxic end-products, synthetic gas and heat (sources for energy recovery), metals and a vitrified glass matrix. Emissions are below the most stringent environmental standards used anywhere.
"This is end-stage technology and sets the standard for clean hazardous waste remediation. Only with plasma can you achieve temperatures high enough for waste destruction in a single-staged process," said Joseph Rosin, PEAT International Chairman. "It's a 21st century solution that addresses three important needs: significant volume reduction, full pollution control and competitive pricing. We are currently preparing for other projects already under contract."
PTDR systems are in operation in California, Taiwan and China. Go to www.peat.com/chinasystem for a video of operations and acceptance test run data.
