Chemical Waste Management | Tetronics

Immobilising and destroying chemical & biological warfare agents

Tetronics’ plasma technology is the ideal solution for destroying chemical and biological warfare agents and their precursors, not only because of its tolerance to different waste material types but also crucially because of its ability to transform these incredibly harmful wastes into a stable vitrified material. Tetronics is a world leader is providing solutions for hazardous and chemical waste management.

The chemical waste management challenge

In 1997, the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), an Arms Control Treaty, came into force, outlawing the development, production, acquisition, stockpiling, transfer and use of chemical weapons and their precursors. All parties under the convention are obliged to prohibit the use and production of chemical weapons, as well as ensuring the complete destruction of these weapons. Member states of the convention are therefore under pressure to find a safe, effective solution that enables them to disarm these materials.

The plasma solution for chemical waste disposal

Tetronics plasma technology offers a transportable destruction system that completely immobilises and destroys chemical & biological warfare agents and their precursors with exceptional ecological performance and a typical Destruction and Removal Efficiency (DRE) of 99.9999%. This offers the perfect clean solution for disposal of chemical waste.
