TRU – Thermal Recovery Unit

Feedstocks are never incinerated, but rather gasified. The processing method of the Thermal Recovery Unit is to heat any organic material in the absence of Oxygen. First, the solid fuel is shredded and blended and fed through an airlock system to ensure an Oxygen-deficient environment in the retort chamber. The TRU then heats the materials to temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Celsius where the Carbon atom is broken off, leaving sequestered Carbon and a volatile gas. (More Information)



BioCHAR – Soil Amendment

Biochar may be an immediate solution to reducing the global impact of farming (and in reducing the impact from all agricultural waste). The burning and natural decomposition of trees and agricultural matter contributes a large amount of CO2 released to the atmosphere. (More Information)

Drum Reclamation Furnace

The DRF has an integral Thermal Oxidizer for control of air emissions, including VOC’s, odors, smoke, and particulate. In most cases the DRF will meet the particulate limitations. However, where there are unusually stringent requirements for controlling particulate emissions, the DRF is fitted with a lime-injected filter system which removes particulates from the exhaust stream. (More Information)



Thermal Oxidizer (Air Quality)

Thermal oxidizers, or thermal incinerators, are combustion devices that control VOC, CO, and volatile HAP emissions by combusting them to carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. Thermal oxidizers are similar to catalytic oxidizers (catalytic oxidizers use a catalyst to promote the oxidation reaction).  (More Information)
