20 Advantages of the Startech Plasma System:

system1. The price of the Startech system and its operating costs are significantly less expensive than many of the present costs being experienced by industry.

2. Hazardous and non hazardous wastes — solids, liquids, sludges and gases — can be safely and economically processed without producing harmful, illegal or noxious emission, effluents or residues.

3. Volumetric waste reduction for most solid wastes is approximately 300 to 1.

4. The Startech system’s environmental performance is far safer than the United States EPA standards and regulations.

5. The system is computer controlled, easy to use and operates at normal atmospheric pressure, very safely and quietly. Due to the 30,000 ºF temperature, it is not necessary to pre-sort different kinds of waste or make any changes in the system, so there's no down time spent switching to different settings.

eye6. The Startech system will improve public health and safety, and will not produce the harm that arises from incinerators and landfills.

7. For many wastes, the Startech system produces commodity products for sale or use, such as metals, specialty inorganics and a clean synthesis gas (Plasma Converted Gas).

8. The Startech system reduces the cost and risk to the corporation, agency and organizational entity from the “perpetual liability” that accompanies hazardous waste generation, treatment, storage, disposal and transportation.

9. The Startech systems can be produced in various configurations that allow them to be used aboard ships for marine applications, in a truck for mobile applications and in stationary configurations ranging in capacity measured from hundreds of pounds per hour to hundreds of tons per day. guy

10. The Startech system can be operated intermittently a few hours a day as needed, or around the clock, without many of the difficulties and costs that arise in other technologies when operated in the same manner.

11. When processing high-energy content waste such as plastics, solvents, and tires, a unit of material that requires one kilowatt of power to process will produce enough PCG and recoverable heat to produce up to 2.5 kilowatts of electrical power.

12. Unlike other technologies, no catalysts are required by the Startech system.

fill13. The Startech system can process low level radioactive waste. Although the system does not reduce radioactivity, it can reduce its volume by factors of hundreds to one.

14. The Startech system can achieve “total and irreversible destruction”of hazardous and toxic compounds and wastes, lethal viruses, bacteria and prions.

15. Resource Conservation Recovery Act recycling exemptions may be available where the resultant products produced are being used in an industrial process or to make a product.

16. The employment of the Startech system will allow the user to conform to Zero Discharge criteria, lightserving to enhance the good environmental community relations of the user.

17. Because the Converter is electrically driven, unlike incinerators, its operation can be stopped immediately by shutting off the electricity, and it is therefore controllable and “inherently safe.”

18. The Startech system can do on-site remediation of toxic “hot spots”(contaminated properties) and landfills, and return those properties to the market for sale in a safe and habitable condition. Landfills contain resources that can be safely processed and recovered as commodity products by the Startech Converter.

19. The Converter can process solids, liquids and gases all at the same time.

20. The Startech system directly couples to co-generation, power systems and the primary power grid.
