Research Institution
"The development of a transportable waste management suitable for rapid deployment is proposed. The system shall be based on the optimum integration of a commercial wastewater treatment system with a state-of-the-art plasma pyrolysis system. Because ofthe very high temperature generated by the plasma torch, the system is capable of decomposing virtually all types of materials into their elemental form, rendering them inert. Integration with a wastewater treatment system would improve the energyefficiency of the system by eliminating the need to vaporize large quantities of water which can be safely discharged after treatment, leaving only small amounts of residue which can be destroyed by the plasma pyrolysis system with other solid waste. Thedesign of a fully self-contained, transportable system shall be based entirely on demonstrated technology. The Phase I effort is to evaluate the design options to arrive at an optimum top level design with projections of system size, weight, processingcapacity, capital and operating cost, and operation and maintenance requirements. The Phase I Option shall be to initiate the detailed design for an operational prototype demonstration system to be completed under Phase II. Development of the proposedsystem would allow the military to resolve the various sanitary environmental safeguard and securities concerns associated with rapid deployment. The system would also find civilian and commercia
