Technologies for a Clean Planet
InEnTec offers the modern world a proven solution to two of its most perplexing challenges: disposing of the millions of tons of waste produced each day in a safe, environmentally-responsible manner and producing clean fuels. InEnTec is the world leader in advanced systems for waste gasification. Our patented Plasma Enhanced Melter (PEM) technology can transform virtually any waste – municipal, industrial, medical and hazardous waste – into clean fuels, electricity and industrial products. With no combustion or incineration the PEM is environmentally beneficial – no air, water or ground pollution. The technology is commercially proven, efficient, cost-effective, offering a clean path to a sustainable future.
InEnTec views the PEM system as superior to competing methods of waste treatment and disposal, based on its economic and environmental advantages and potential to be used across a wide variety of applications, including distributed power generation and transportation fuels production.
InEnTec constructed the first Process Test Facility PEM at its Technology Center in Richland, Washington in 1996. The system began operations in April 1997 and remains in active use today for client demonstrations, treatability studies on new or customer-specific feedstocks, research and development of operating parameters and equipment upgrades.
InEnTec’s technology, called the Plasma Enhanced Melter® or PEM®, uses the power of plasma to break materials apart into their elemental components (such as hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen) and then transform those elements into synthesis gas which is one of the basic building blocks of the chemical and energy industries.
