Hazardous Waste Destruction

Hazardous Waste Destruction

Process in which the high energy concentration and high temperatures proper of thermal plasma are applied to the treatment of hazardous waste.

Under controlled atmosphere, the materials exposed to the plasma are transformed into gases and a vitreous ceramic material. The process guarantees the complete destruction of wastes without generating residual byproducts which might later on require particular destination such as landfilling. The vitreous material that results from the treatment is inert and can be used, for instance, as construction aggregate.
