The Natural Energy Solution uses a proprietary, patented process called Gas Phase Reduction (”GPR”). This is a highly effective, non-incineration method that converts all organic waste and destroys all hazardous organic waste products.
The Natural Energy Process is a proven technology for the destruction of hazardous organic chemicals and has been successfully applied to pesticides, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and chemical warfare agents. Chlorinated hydrocarbons, such as PCBs are chemically reduced to a clean burning renewable fuel comprised of methane or natural gas and Hydrogen Chloride (HCl).
- The HCl is further reduced to Sodium Chloride (NaCl).
- The Natural Energy Process leaves no pathogens or toxic chemicals to further harm the environment.
The technology is suitable for hazardous organic wastes in all matrices including soil, sediment, sludge, high-strength oils, watery wastes, and bulk solids such as electrical equipment, equipment casings, drums, and other such harmful remnants.
- Many of the outputs from waste treatment are recyclable.
- Treated electrical equipment for example is suitable for scrap metal recycling, and the product gas output that consists mainly of methane, can be used as fuel for ancillary system components.
The technology achieves total destruction efficiencies (DEs), for Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and other substances of concern that approach 100%. Extensive testing of the technology by accredited third parties, has demonstrated destruction efficiencies that exceed 99.9999% (six nines) for all POPs wastes tested. The optimum business model for this application would be the generation of electric power from the available methane product gas. The residual material, which is comprised mostly of crystallized silica and traces of elemental carbon, is expected to be sold to the construction products industry.
