Abstract:

ENVIRONMENTAL PHYSICS, INCORPORATED (EPI) PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY AND THE DESIGN OF A MOBILE HAZARDOUS WASTE REMEDIATION SYSTEM IN PHASE 1. THIS EFFORT IS BUILT ON EXTENSIVE RESEARCH INFORMATION OF A PROTOTYPE PLASMA TORCH AND FIELD EXPERIENCE OF CLEANING UP HAZARDOUS WASTES. EPI'S MOBILE SYSTEM COMBINES EXISTING ROTARY KILN TECHNOLOGY WITH AN ADVANCED PLASMA TORCH AND SEPARATOR. ON ACCOUNT OF ITS HIGH ELECTRON TEMPERATURE, THE INTEGRATED SYSTEM ACHIEVES THE COMPLETE DISSOCIATION OF WASTE INTO CHARGED MOLECULES AND IONS WHICH ARE SEPARABLE AND COLLECTIBLE IN STABLE AND BENIGN STATES. EPI'S UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICS OF THE PLASMA TORCH PERMITS IT TO SCALE THE RESULTS FROM A LABORATORY DEVICE INTO A FIELD OPERATING UNIT. KEY BENEFITS OF EPI'S MOBILE HAZARDOUS WASTE REMEDIATION SYSTEM INCLUDE: FIELD OPERABILITY; DESTRUCTION REMOVAL EFFICIENCY (DRE) OF AT LEAST 99.99%; SUITABILITY FOR USE ON DIOXIN, HALOGENATED SOLVENTS, HYDROCARBON AND SIMILAR WORK STREAMS; HIGH LEVEL OF SAFETY WITH CONTINUOUS DIAGNOSTIC MONITORING; COMPLIANCE WITH EXISTING EPA REGULATIONS; REMEDIATION COST COMPARABLE TO CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES ($500/TON).
