[GreenYes] Re: Thermal Waste Treatment lnown outcomes of system using oxygen highly inefficent

Isn?t Thermoselect the system that recently was shut down in Germany after
repeated problems?

And economically and environmentally unacceptable!

This is in practice what the Star Tech and Westinghouse system does but
without flame or Oxygen.

Thermal Waste Treatment: a Better Approach
Calaminus B., Stahlberg R.
Chemtech 1998, October, 40-46 (Eng.)
The Thermoselect High-Temperature Recycling process combines slow
compression, degassing, fixed-bed oxygen blown high temperature
gasification, and mineral and metal residue smelting in a closed-loop system
to completely transform municipal, industrial and other kinds of waste into
directly usable products. The Thermoselect process is presented on a
diagram; the most important chemical reactions taking place at each step of
this process are listed on another diagram. The article also contains a
figure listing all steps for the complete Thermoselect process. One metric
tonne of waste and approximately 500 kg of oxygen yields: 890 kg of
synthetic gas (that could be used for conversion into electricity, or as a
substrate for chemical synthesis), 350 kg of water used for cooling, 230 kg
of carbon-free vitrified minerals (for use in various industrial
applications), 29 kg of ferrous metal alloy granulate for reintroduction
into the iron or copper industry, 10 kg of industrial quality NaCl, 3 kg of
non-ferrous metal concentrate (mainly zinc and lead), and 2 kg of industrial
quality sulphur. The article also gives three examples of actual
implementation of the aforementioned process in plants located in Karlsruhe,
Ansbach, and Hanau, Germany.

Presented herein in support of further informed discussion of High heat non
incineration method of recycle proposed earlier.
