PEM Facilities

InEnTec Columbia Ridge LLC – Model G100P
Waste Management Columbia Ridge Landfill, Arlington, OR, USA
InEnTec Columbia Ridge LLC owns a gasification facility that includes InEnTec’s Model G100P PEM® system.  The facility has demonstrated the ability to convert municipal solid waste (household trash) into ultra-clean syngas that can be used to produce renewable hydrogen. The G100P represents a significant commercial advancement of the PEM technology as it provides a nearly 500% increase in throughput over a G100 unit.

Dow Corning Corporation – Model G500
Midland, MI, USA
Dow Corning Corporation owns a Model G500 PEM at its facility in Midland, Michigan that is designed to convert industrial byproducts into hydrochloric acid, syngas, and Synglass.

Transportable Model G30
Various Locations
The Model G30 is a fully contained and self-sufficient transportable PEM system on two flat-bed trailers.  The system was demonstrated in March 2007 at Fort Riley Army Base in Kansas, processing municipal solid waste.  The syngas produced by the system was used as fuel in a dual-fuel diesel genset mounted on the second flat bed trailer.  The G30 has been moved to other locations to process various materials, including debris from tornado and storm activity and various wastes from chemical plants.

Global Plasma Technology Limited – Model G100
Kuan Yin (Taipei), Taiwan R.O.C.
A Model G100 PEM was purchased by Global Plasma for processing medical waste in Kuan Yin, Taiwan (near Taipei); It processed a variety of waste streams including medical waste, batteries, spent solvents, lab packs, and mercury vapor lamps.  The syngas generated from the process was used in a dual-fueled diesel engine to produce electricity.

Kawasaki Plant Systems – Model G100
Harima, Japan
The G100 PEM used by Kawasaki in Okinawa for PCB processing (listed below) was disassembled and re-installed it in Harima, Japan.  In April 2006, it began operating again to demonstrate the destruction of asbestos materials for potential Kawasaki clients.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. – Model G100
Okinawa, Japan
InEnTec sold Kawasaki a Model G100 PEM that Kawasaki used in 2003 in Okinawa, Japan to demonstrate the effectiveness of the PEM for destroying PCB oil and PCB-contaminated materials.  The test program was successful, and the PEM is now approved by the Japanese government for PCB destruction.

The Boeing Company – Model G60
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Boeing Company purchased a Model G60 PEM in 2001 and delivered the unit in early 2002 to BioPure Systems SDN BHD in Malaysia, a company Boeing established to own and operate the system.

Fuji Kaihatsu Ltd. – Model G300
Iizuka City, Japan
InEnTec sold a Model G300 PEM to Fuji Kaihatsu Ltd. for processing wood and plastic waste, using the syngas to produce electric power.  The facility began operatingin July 2002 and Fuji changed the feedstock to electronic scrap shortly after the system came on-line in order to extract gold and copper.

Asia Pacific Environmental Technologies, Inc. (APET) – Model G100
Kapolei, HI, USA
APET purchased a Model G100 PEM in 2000 and operations began in February, 2001 processing medical waste and using the syngas for fuel in dual-fueled gas genset that provided power to the PEM.

Allied Technology Group, Inc – Model G200
Richland, WA, USA
InEnTec sold its first commercial PEM system to ATG in 1999 for processing mixed hazardous and radioactive wastes.  It was the first facility in the U.S. to receive a mixed RCRA / TSCA permit.  The system began operating in September 2000.

InEnTec LLC – Model G200 (Commercial Prototype)
Richland, WA, USA
InEnTec constructed a Model G200 PEM at its Technology Center in Richland, Washington as the first commercial-scale prototype.  In 1999 this system was used in performance tests conducted by the Environmental Technology Evaluation Center (“EvTEC”).  The EvTEC testing data served as the technical basis for the first-ever RCRA / TSCA Mixed Waste Permit issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  In the U.S., “mixed waste” often refers to a combination of hazardous and nuclear waste; TSCA waste includes PCB waste.

The EvTEC data was also the basis for an “Equivalency Determination”, issued by U.S. EPA which contained EPA’s concurrence that the destructive effectiveness of the PEM exceeds the mandated requirements that apply to hazardous waste incinerators, thus making the PEM an “equivalent technology” for processing hazardous waste.

InEnTec LLC – Model G60
Richland, WA, USA
InEnTec constructed a Model G60 PEM in 1998 at an Energy Northwest (formerly WPPSS) facility in Richland, Washington to develop scaling factors for larger PEM systems and to evaluate additional system components to be included on full-scale systems.  The G60 began operations in February 1999 and was run for about ten months.  After being shut down, the equipment was dismantled and certain components were incorporated into the system sold to Boeing.

InEnTec LLC – Model G10 (Process Test Facility)
Richland, WA, USA
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.  It has the same unit operations as a full-scale PEM system, including the Pregasifier that is incorporated into certain PEM models.
