Research Institution
Mainstream Engineering Corp. (MEC) proposes developing a pyrolytic solid waste remediation system (py-SWRS) for processing mixed solid waste at small contingency base camps. The proposed py-SWRS unit is a scaled-down and simplified version of a portable pyrolysis reactor already under development at MEC for greenwaste processing at landfills located on large, fixed DoD installations. MEC"s portable fast pyrolysis unit features proprietary reactor design features to improve yield and energetics. In Phase I, an existing pilot reactor will be demonstrated with a mixed waste stream representative of solid waste generated at small contingency bases. Key components unique to the py-SWRS process will be designed and experimentally tested. In addition, a high-fidelity design including 3D layout and sizing/costing of capital components will be performed. Phase II will culminate in the delivery of a fully characterized py-SWRS technology demonstrator to the Army for further testing.
