ClearWaste™ is an equipment/product/machine/unit that converts/eradicates/thermally decomposes waste into reusable ash in an energy efficient and cost effective manner for governments, societies, industries, commercial establishments and individuals to treat solid waste in an environmentally friendly way and is an alternative solution to current centralized landfills and incineration process/technology.
ClearWaste™ uses a unique process combining and arranging different technological processes and technologies to thermally decompose and treat solid waste generated from environments such as households, industries, medical facilities and any other avenues but not limited to garbage waste/discarded solid matter from and in landfills, rivers, cities, ports, farms, slums, religious sites, schools, hotels, malls, industries, hospitals, electronic factories and households by thermal decomposition. This is done in equipment where waste can be loaded and decomposed thermally by using a unique reactor technology. This process increases the efficiency of waste decomposition through low energy requirements.
The efficiency of the equipment is dependent on the moisture content of the waste being fed into the equipment. The equipment will work at its optimum design capacities when operated with waste that has moisture content of 20% and below. With higher moisture content (more than 20%), the design capacity of the system will reduce accordingly.
Consequently, it treats the toxic gases, ashes and contaminants generated during the process with a uniquely formulated liquid and solid filter media. The liquid and solid filter media create a larger surface area through the unique combination of pressure and venture mechanisms that aids the attachment of all the suspended particles, toxins, heavy metals, oil and greases present in the decomposed gases. This results in the safe and efficient removal of the contaminants from the exhaust stream in an environment-friendly manner.
Plasma is superheated matter – its matter has heightened heat that causes the electrons to be detached from the atoms and as a result, forms ionized gas. It comprises over 99% of the visible universe.
Plasma is often called “the fourth state of matter,” along with solid, liquid and gas. Just as a liquid will boil, changing into a gas when energy is added, heating a gas will form a plasma – a “soup” of positively charged particles (ions) and negatively charged particles (electrons). In the plasma creation process, the electrons are detached from the atoms and in the process, the atoms vibrate due to the passing of the photons. This interaction creates a vibration/force on the atoms that makes the phonons collide with each other more often. The atmospheric air flows through the uniquely designed reactor chamber of ClearWaste™ and due to this, oxygen enriched air and nitrogen-enriched air are obtained at the same time. After that, the oxygen and nitrogen enriched air is continuously supplied in the decomposition chamber, it helps further in the ionization of the air by continuously heating due to presence of enriched oxygen and nitrogen. This, in turn, makes indirect plasma of oxygen and nitrogen which results in the improvement of thermal decomposition of waste. Herein, nitrogen helps to increase the temperature of thermal decomposition, whereas oxygen helps to breakdown the waste by oxidation of waste molecules.
ClearWaste™ consists of four compartments, which includes a reactor chamber, a thermal decomposition chamber, an ionic chamber and a gas filter chamber. The waste is inducted into the thermal decomposition chamber where a start-up ignition is commenced manually.
ClearWaste™ has the answers for a Cleaner & Greener Tomorrow.
ClearWaste™ is on the leading edge of clean and efficient conversion technology. The ClearWaste™ patented process is a more efficient, more reliable and less capital-intensive method to eliminate Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) without using any fuel or gas. The by-products i.e. ash of which can be recycled into construction and building materials. ClearWaste™ can be placed in every area as it only occupies a small working area without the need to transport to landfills or incinerators. This could effectively render landfills a thing of the past.
ClearWaste™ reduces greenhouse gas emissions in two ways. The ClearWaste™ process produces far lower CO2 and NOX emissions compared to an incinerator. Landfills are a major source of methane emissions which, on a pound for pound basis and have 21 times more greenhouse gas effect than CO2 that comes from the ClearWaste™ process.
Comparison of Conventional Incinerators vs. ClearWaste™
Cost Assumption: 150 tonnes of waste per day
To build a 150-tonnes per day gasification plant, with building and land not included, cost approximately USD 37.5 million
To treat 150 tonnes of waste per day, only 75 units of ClearWaste™ are needed which costs a fraction of conventional price.
An incinerator needs fuel to incinerate every 65 – 100 kgs of MSW:
- LPG Gas = 13 litre/hr
- Diesel Oil = 12 litre/hr
- Natural Gas M3 = 8-9 litre/hr
Does not need any fuel, diesel or gas. It uses electricity to operate the 2 units of blower fans, 1 exhaust fan and 1 water re-circulation pump.
Environmental Assumption: 150 tons of waste
Emissions are centralized in one area. Smoke and bad odour present.
Emissions are divided to 75 areas. Minimal smoke emissions and odours.
Cost is high to upkeep incinerator and buildings.
Low maintenance cost (only incurred to change filtration media).
