The economics of the Plasma Arc Reduction (PAR) system reduces the cost of waste processing and can provide energy generation. The PAR system:
- The PAR process has a lower capital cost than gasification systems, incinerator systems, and other plasma systems when designed to meet the environmental regulations for a clean operation.
- For industrial, medical, and on-site disposal, the PAR system eliminates transportation costs associated with your waste stream.
- Operating costs are low. The system is automated for feed and process control, simple maintenance requirements, standard process components, and uses little utility services (water, sewer, electricity).
- The PAR unit is all electric and has no combustion to simplify compliance with environmental regulations, monitoring, data collection, and review.
- All PAR units employ Heat Recovery ability when steam is needed at the site.
- The PAR process can generate electricity for powering the site facilities and/or selling back to the electric grid. The PAR process can generate fuel in a Syn Gas or Bio Diesel form or both, depending on the waste being processed.
- The design of the PAR models allow for expansion to accept more volume and process capacity by adding process chambers to the prime design, the system can grow as the waste stream increases.
Managing a waste stream can be very expensive, damaging to the environment, and can create negative press. Plasma Energy has a solution that is environmentally safe and greatly reduces the managed material. The PAR system deals with waste at the source, reducing it by 95%, and breaks it down into environmentally safe byproducts.
