Renewable Energy From Municipal Solid Waste

Home

Problem Statement

The drying, sorting and volume of municipal solid waste are the biggest challenges in waste management. Currently, most of the waste is going to landfills which are already at their tipping point. On the other hand, recycling is becoming more and more expensive due to sorting issues. Further added to the problem is the high moisture content in municipal solid waste due to the tropical climate of Malaysia.

Solution Statement

Our products offer a one-handed solution to incinerate waste in an environment-friendly way. Our technology converts the recovered heat into valuable forms of energy, such as hot water for home use, heating and cooling. We do not produce toxic gases and are environment friendly. Our patented gas circulation, regenerative vertical shaft type incinerator technology enabled with the solar oxyhydrogen system help to process the gases so efficiently that nothing harmful goes into the environment. The process includes the burning of plastics in waste products.
