Flameless Oxycombustion is a combustion process operated under pressure at high temperature in oxygen atmosphere. By this technology, OXOCO offers an optimal solution for waste treatment, due to its low costs, the energy recovery and CO2 capture. In addition, this process transforms waste into vitrified slags tha can be reused, with a substantial environment benefit in terms of reduced pollutant emissions and consequent climate-changing matters. The coventional technologies for waste treatment generate, instead ,significant quantities of waste fractions. The Oxycombustion Flameless technology can handle the streams coming out from the waste treatment cycle , pursuing the definitive end of the cycle with no other waste generating, but only immediately reusable material: glassy material and CO2. The technology realizes the efficient treatment of a wide range of waste of urban and industrial origin, whether non-hazardous or hazardous, even if highly contaminated.
OXOCO offers a Plant that realises the principle of the Circular Economy, acting as an alternative to landfill and using the best waste treatment technology.
“Isotherm PWR®” technology has been defined as emerging “BAT” (Best Available Tecnique) by the European Community. It is able to implement the recovery of matter and energy from waste, ensuring minimal environmental impact. It does not release greenhouse gases and pollutant gases by transforming PAHs, Dioxins, Furans and PCBs into carbon dioxide and water, both of which are recovered and intended for industrial reuse.
