A new compact unit, which enables manufacturing and engineering companies to turn their hazardous waste streams into heat, has been launched by DPS Global.

The ST Series technology involves staged and separated pyrolysis and gasifi cation of industrial and hazardous wastes to produce small amounts of ash and heat. DPS says this enables industrial plants to utilise their waste as a substitute for fossil fuels, thereby reducing CO2 emissions and heating bills. The technology also reduces the cost of waste disposal by diverting it from landfi ll or incineration and through its capability to be positioned close to the source of waste.

The company claims this model is capable of processing up to 250kg per hour and generating heat output of up to 700kWth, which can be reclaimed for use in manufacturing processes or heating buildings. It accepts around 85% of the European waste catalogue of materials with no pre-treatment required.
