Gasification for energy has been practiced for over 100 years and biomass is the leading source of renewable energy in the USA. There is a very large and growing untapped market for portable, modular and scalable gasification solutions and plasma arc is recognized as the state-of-the-art for mixed waste. Key proprietary innovations enable adaptiveARC to, for the first time, build and deliver a more economical and flexible plasma arc gasification solution to this untapped market. The two key unique innovations are: 1) the pulsed plasma energy torch and 2) a unique mechanical process inside the reactor that enable Cool Plasma' Gasification to occur. Commercial scale prototypes of the plasma arc reactor are operational and are currently being demonstrated at the company's customer sites in Mexico City. With these innovations, adaptiveARC delivers a modular and portable solution at a fraction of the cost of the existing competitors (40-70%) while maintaining lower air emissions, greater energy and cleaner residual waste processing throughputs. When used in conjunction with material recovery systems nearly 100% recycling is achieved. adaptiveARC is not just clean energy, it's energy that cleans' This seminar will be broadcast live and also archived on our website www.istc.illinois.edu for later viewing.
