Plasco Conversion Technologies Inc. is a Canadian technology supplier to the Energy from Waste industry. The Plasco Gasification and Plasma Refining System is a plant configuration that gives the client a world class, environmentally pristine, proven waste conversion solution to replace incineration. Each Integrated Conversion And Refining System (ICARS) is designed and produced in repeatable units to process 200 tonnes per day (TPD) each. The ICARS in conjunction with the Gas Quality Control Suite (GQCS) creates a clean syngas usable to supplement or replace coal or natural gas at power plants or to be used directly in an IC engine or turbine. Net saleable energy is about 75% of energy in waste processed, materially more than is recovered by incineration. Nonleachable slag and clean water options provide for additional financial benefits and reduce cost compared with incinerators.
The Plasco GPRS is the result of over 30 years of experience with plasma technologies. Decades of research and development have been invested to develop breakthrough performance and versatility that is economical and environmentally superior to environmental limits imposed in various jurisdictions. From 2004 through 2014, Plasco designed, built, tested, exercised and operated our commercial demonstration facility to complete the commercial design and test operational performance and durability of ICARS and GQCS. The Plasco commercial demonstration facility was built in Ottawa, Canada with Plasco shareholder investment. In order to prove ICARS and the GQCS Plasco made the self-investment in a fully functioning plant from the reception of random MSW through generating power with IC engines. Plasco has the knowledge and practical experience to support smooth integration of conversion technology into a fully integrated Waste from Energy Plant.
The Plasco GPRS replaces incineration and related pollution control systems in Energy from Waste facilities.
