GLES' Pyrolysis Process

Pyrolysis of waste is the state-of-the art process providing destructive decomposition of waste materials in the absence of oxygen. Its combustion-free methodology allows us to eliminate residual and fly ash emission into the environment. GLES' leading edge design and structure solutions provide the extraction of maximum energy potential contained in the waste materials in the form of high calorific gas, without any liquid tar fractions and with only a small amount of solid residue being formed. This is the only system to provide complete molecular decomposition and destruction of dioxins and furans, allowing for the most environment-friendly approach to waste treatment and commercial use of the solid residue.

 

Our conversion technology provides continuous treatment of waste materials of various origins with no harmful residues while generating electricity or steam for the surrounding communities and industrial application.

 

Advantages:

  • Conversion of up to 100% of waste
  • No Greenhouse and other harmful gas emission into the atmosphere
  • No toxic waste to dispose of
  • No dioxins in the off-gas and the solid residue
  • Reduced public health risk
  • Simultaneous treatment of various types of waste materials
  • Reliable energy source, high energy output
  • High conversion efficiency
  • Carbon credits production
  • Low capital and operation costs
  • Low energy consumption (as compared to the alternative management scenarios).
The Waste Conversion Pyrolysis System is well suited to handle various feedstocks:
  • Municipal Solid Waste
MSW accounts for over 4 billion tons of waste annually worldwide. Cost-effective and sound municipal waste management is a pressing need in major population areas with huge volumes of waste and few disposal sites. MSW treatment bottlenecks are mainly associated with the mixed composition of the waste stream that is difficult to process effectively and safely using many applicable technologies. GLES' Waste Conversion Pyrolysis systems can handle various materials mixed together in everyday MSW streams, including textiles, leather, rubber and plastic goods, plastic bottles, varnish-and-paint waste, wood waste, paper, cardboard, kitchen waste, etc and convert them to valuable by-products on a continuous basis, with no harmful emissions to the environment.. 
  • Automobile Tires
A number of techniques are presently being utilized to manage this waste problem by prolonging the useful life of tires or by turning scrap tires into recyclable products, useful raw materials or energy.  To date, the current  solutions have created more of a difficulty to the environment and cost to businesses than first anticipated. WCP System can effectively and economically produce clean, renewable energy and carbon char from tires.  The recovered steel, high energy output and lack of harmful emissions make this a viable option for tire recycling.
  • Biomass

There is a growing interest worldwide for biomass energy conversion. Utilizing WCP system can support the efforts to produce renewable energy from biomass feed stocks: energy crops, wood wastes, including forestry residues, timber production waste, barks, sawdust, crop residues, such as straws and other harvesting residues from cereals, cardboard and paper, residues from the food processing industry, and agricultural waste.

  • Industrial waste

This market includes waste that is produced as a result of a commercial or industrial process.  It ranges from the residual sludge of the process itself to the packaging materials and wood pallets used.  Most of this waste is sent to landfill in addition to the household waste that is considered municipal solid waste.  Manufacturers are an excellent opportunity for an on-site WCP System.  Large volumes of mixed waste will not need to be hauled away and can generate electricity or steam for process needs.

  • Hazardous waste 
These wastes are generated at every stage in the production, use, and disposal of manufactured products.  Certain commercial products defined as hazardous waste, such as  cleaning fluids, paints, other toxic chemicals, etc that are discarded by commercial establishments or individuals can be effectively and safely processed in our WCP units. 
  • PCB's, plastics
Plastic and mixed plastic waste, by weight, represent less  than 1% of all packaging waste. This is, however, considered minimal in comparison to their  waste streams. Commercial,  industrial, governmental, and institutional segments all demonstrate growing need and use of plastic. The WCP provides a unique opportunity for municipalities and private industrial sectors alike to deal with the issue of plastic waste and destroy any toxic chemicals contained therein as well as generate sustainable energy locally.
  • Sewage sludge
As part of a blended non-homogenous stream of waste this waste can provide an effective alternative to traditional waste treatment. If the WCP System is located at a nearby waste transfer site it can provide power for the waste treatment plant itself. 
  • Crude oil sludge
Spent oil shale and oil sludge waste continue to be dumped into landfills, threatening the soil, water supply and the health of those around them. In the process of treating oil-containing waste waters in refineries and petrochemical plants a considerable quantity of oil sludge is formed.  Problems in eliminating this sludge or rendering it harmless constitute a significant bottleneck in the operation of production facilities.The Waste Conversion Pyrolysis system provides a solution to these problems too.
