Pyrocon’s system was developed over years of trial and error with previous systems. Examples include:
A system that was the predecessor to Pyrocon’s system was a demonstration project in California. The system was operational from 2004 to 2010. The system was designed to process between 4 tons per day to 40 tons per day of municipal solid waste. The system operated at most 5 days a week except during performance testing, which required 7 days a week, 24 hours a day operating data. The system over the life of the project operated nearly 10,000 hours total. Performance data showed that the system was capable of performing an efficient destruction and reduction of waste with a volume reduction of over 90%+, while generating a clean energy source. The system was permitted in the toughest air district in the world, the South Coast Air District.
A system capable of processing 50 tons per day of municipal solid waste, which is currently under construction in California. The system is scheduled to be operational in the 4th Quarter of 2015. The system is designed to generate nearly 2 MW gross of electricity an hour. Pyrocon has over a dozen projects in the pipeline with letters of intent from South Africa, the UK, India, as well as several other countries which are currently hidden under an NDA. Pyrocon is a leader in the thermal conversion industry and is actively pursuing new opportunities.
