Plasma arc technology was first developed by NASA in the 1960s to test the integrity of heat shield materials, protecting space crafts on re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere. Plasma known as the fourth state of matter is comparable to artificial lighting that generates temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun.

The plasma gasification conversion process is a non-incineration thermal process that converts waste into synthetic gas used to generate electricity and commercially marketable by-products. Almost any type of waste can be used as feedstock, including; municipal solid waste, tires, plastic, green waste, and other organic materials. Plasma gasification also offers safe destruction of many hazardous and toxic materials, such as PCBs, dioxins, DDT, furans, halogenated hydrocarbons, medical waste as well as military chemical agents, some of which are prone to create serious problems to the environment and to the public.

The plasma gasification process converts each ton of residential solid waste, into by-products such as aggregate (slag), sulphur, salt and potable water, and clean EnergoGas that is used to produce energy. The process occurs in an oxygen-deprived (anaerobic) environment where the process temperatures are attentively monitored and controlled. The resulting EnergoGas is rich in energy and is used to operate internal combustion engines that generate electricity. The inert inorganic materials contained in waste such as metals, soil, and glass components that cannot be converted into fuel form a slag product. Once the molten slag is cooled, the aggregate is an inert and stable solid material of commercial viability and value.
