Tetronics: plasma treatment of hazardous waste

Treatment of hazardous waste using Tetronics’ technology offers commercial advantage over existing waste management options while reducing landfill liabilities and conserving natural resources. About Tetronics: Tetronics International is the global leader in the supply of Waste Recovery Plants. We have the capability to manage the complete deployment lifecycle of a Waste Recovery Plant from initial testing of the waste material at Tetronics’ test facility, the most comprehensive in Europe, through to the physical onsite installation of a full commercial plant, and subsequent support and maintenance.

Tetronics’ patented Direct Current (DC) Plasma Arc plant technology provides the closest solution to Zero Waste currently available. This “green” sustainable alternative for waste management uses ultra-high temperatures to melt, gasify or vaporize any waste material, in order to treat, recover or generate useful commercial products.

As a pioneer in using plasma technology for waste treatment, our multi-faceted, highly qualified research and engineering team have applied the technology to an unrivalled range of waste challenges.

Our technology has been tried and tested over five decades and has been used globally in more than 80 plants across a wide and varied range of applications.

These applications include, but are not limited to: transforming hazardous waste into environmentally safe building aggregate, recovering precious metals from spent catalysts, recovering energy from waste oil, reducing the volume of radioactive materials and improving the quality and efficiency of steel production.

Our principal aim is to provide sustainable and future proof solutions to support organizations in recovering value from their waste materials while meeting their waste disposal and carbon footprint challenges.

What is Hazardous Waste:
Example wastes include: Air Pollution Control (APC) residues, Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM), Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) including Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) contaminated soils & sludges, Spent Potliner (SPL) and Pyrometallurgical wastes including Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) dusts.
