CES has spent several years thoroughly testing and improving its system on a commercial scale basis, developing protocols for efficient & safe operation under a wide range of operating conditions. CES engineering and sophisticated control systems can thermally convert a variety of wastes including:
Many waste streams are embedded with substantial amounts of recyclable material, much of which is difficult to extract through current sorting techniques. CES Technology converts feedstock under tightly-controlled temperature and atmospheric conditions. As a result, after the process is complete, glass and metals can be recovered directly for recycling. Unlike incineration, CES Technology is not dependent on the energy content of waste to function, thus it can process batches of waste with a high ratios of recyclables relative to organic compounds.
Transportable, Scalable, Modular
Most alternative waste disposal technologies require large-scale fixed capital infrastructure that is not adjustable when processing requirements increase or decrease. CES Technology is “modular”: a plant can be precisely sized to meet disposal demands, and resized later if those demands change. CES solutions are either transportable or fully mobile, allowing tremendous flexibility for use in military, law enforcement and other specialized waste disposal applications.
Destruction and disposal of waste and conversion of waste into energy are problems faced by government and private organizations around the globe. CES is forming alliances that support the application of our technologies to surmount these problems. For example, CES formed a strategic partnership with Science Application International Corporation (SAIC), a $4.5 billion technology and engineering company. SAIC and CES are jointly marketing waste disposal solutions for defense and homeland security applications.
Commitment to a Clean Environment
Landfilling waste uses valuable space, potentially leaches contaminants into the soil, and creates methane, a greenhouse gas with nearly 40 times the potency of carbon dioxide. Landfilling is also wasteful: neither the latent energy contained in the organic components of the waste nor recyclable metal and glass embedded in the waste are extracted. We are burying valuable resources!
CES thermal waste conversion plants extract these hidden resources in a safe and environmentally-friendly process. First, CES gently heats waste to a controlled temperature in an oxygen-controlled environment. This prevents burning and reduces the potential for particulate emissions. Second, gases released by the waste are drawn into an integrated emission control module where they are subject to an advanced thermal emission control process , generating heat and destroying harmful molecules.
