Fabgroups Technologies Inc. (FTI) is a privately-owned Canadian group of enterprises well established in their respective industries. Having realised the importance of finding solutions for the treatment and disposal of waste materials Fabgroups began making strategic investments in the environmental sector.
Plasma-assisted sludge oxidation (PASO) is an emerging technology that can be used to process organic sludge from a variety of sources.
This energy-efficient technology, which consumes less than 100 kWh of electricity per wet ton of sludge, offers an excellent alternative to incineration, landfill disposal, or sludge spreading- three methods that can be highly detrimental to the environment. Plants that produce sufficient quantities of sludge will be able to reduce their waste by 95% and generate GREEN ENERGY.
The major sectors for PASO systems are Municipal services (sludges from wastewater treatment plants) Pulp & Paper Mills (primary and secondary sludge), and Agribusiness (sludge containing fats, proteins and glucose).
PASO is based on a rotary kiln working at about 600 deg. C and at or below atmospheric pressure, equipped with an air plasma non-transferred arc torch. It is designed to treat sludges after conventional dewatering processes with at least 20% organic content. Plasma generation is a rational application of electricity, because the calorific value of the organic material in the sludge is used as a principal heat source. The process is simple, safe and robust.
It is important to note that PASO is the only thermal treatment technology available that can process sludges with as little as 20% dry solids content.
Products and Services:
The energy requirements for plasma oxidation are less than for other any other thermal process. Plasma oxidation is able to provide energy in excess of what is needed for the oxidation process. Energy from the flue gas can be recovered as heated air or steam using heat exchangers or waste heat boilers. The energy can then be used as a thermal product or converted to electricity in steam driven equipment.
