Distributed waste technology outperforming
conventional centralised technology by a mile
Boson Energy's Advanced Thermal Treatment (ATT) technology outperforms conventional alternatives on all key performance indicators.
Reduction of waste volume
Reducing transportation and congestion
Emissions and cost of air pollution control
Cost of residues handling and residue use
Recovery and use of thermal energy and power,
No-nuisance acceptance in local communities
Footprint and location of sites in urban and residential contexts
Boson's ATT is a one-step continous process combining three well proven core technologies (Pyrolysis, Gasification and Plasma treatment). These technologies can applied in combination or separately, depending on waste stream
The technology combination has demonstrated performance for various wastes; including MSW/RDF, Commercial & Industrial, Non-hazardous/Hazardous Medical waste
Performance has been verified by several third parties and authorities – including environmental permits granted in two countries
With a footprint of 80x80 metres and approved for installation in urban areas, the technology offers unique flexibility and fast rollout
What do you mean 'full stop'? There must be something coming out of it?
The slag coming out of the ATT process is a glassy (or vitrified) material that has been tested and proven benign (no leaking or leaching) by third parties and approved by environmental authorities for use as filling material in construction of roads and other infrastructure.
At 5% percent of the initial volume plus it's benign nature, it very significantly reduces transportation volumes and requirements - compared to bottom ash and hazardous fly-ash.
Due to the nature of the gasification, the capital expenditure and complexity of air pollution control is much lower, and ATT reaches 'below-level-of-detection' on critical compounds in flue gases.
