Burlington, Ontario-based Eco Waste Solutions’ system that destroys non-recyclable municipal and industrial waste has been awarded a US patent and an Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Canada award. The double-burn process reduces waste volumes by 90 per cent, yielding as inert byproducts recyclable ash, colorless/odorless exhaust and thermal energy that can be converted into electricity or used to heat buildings. Designed for onsite operations, the basic system is configured in two steel modules, one for each phase of the burn. A configuration for dangerous medical waste utilizes a third module that contains scrubbers. Capital costs for the system range between $250,000 and $4-million, depending on capacity.
