Research Institution
To meet the requirements of the Army Solid Waste Remediation System, for Small Contingency Base Camps, Altex has developed a Compact Ward Furnace Energy Recovery System (CWFERS), which was proven feasible by testing and analysis, under a Phase I award. The system reduces fuel consumption by 92% fuel, compared to a traditional remediation system, and converts the energy in the bulk waste to hot water. Under the proposed Phase II, a full scale system will be designed, fabricated and tested and delivered to an Army designated site, for simulated field testing. The system design will focus on meeting the required performance, reliability, safety and cost metrics, specified by OSD. To determine the potential of the product for commercial markets, limited testing will be performed on civilian wastes and agricultural residues. Penetration of the CWFERS into civilian markets will reduce the system cost, which benefits the military. The Phase II simulated field test data will be utilized to develop a production plan and a production unit for field testing and commercialization, under a Phase III effort.
