The FastOx system uses heat, steam and oxygen to break down waste at the molecular level. Organic materials turn into an energy-dense syngas. Inorganics melt into a non-leaching stone. Waste undergoes complete conversion into high value products without burning. There are no toxic byproducts and no emissions.
Syngas can be used to power generator sets and gas turbines. The clean syngas results in electricity being produced with lower specific emissions than even natural gas.
Hydrogen is created using water gas shift and pressure swing absorption separation, and is suitable both for injection into a pipeline or for use in a hydrogen fuel cell.
The Fischer-Tropsch process creates sulfur-free and aromatic-free renewable diesel that is 20 times cleaner than California’s ultra-low sulfur diesel standards.
Ammonia produced from syngas using the Haber-Bosch process can be used as the primary ingredient in chemical fertilizers.
