Waste Management Technology | Tetronics

Clean technology for a thriving planet

Our waste management technology is driven by our expertise in hazardous waste disposal and resource recovery solutions

In today’s competitive marketplace, success at Tetronics is increasingly driven by our expertise in technology. We build on 50 years of experience to deliver our best-in-class clean plasma technology to meet the often complex needs of our customers across a number of resource recovery and hazardous waste disposal challenges. As a result of the investment in technology development, Tetronics currently has 109 patents either granted or pending across 12 families.

Compact and controllable

Due to their compact and controllable nature, Tetronics’ plasma systems provide a unique opportunity for industrial processing. In fact, plasma is one of the cleanest thermal processing technologies available.  This enables Tetronics’ systems to support an extensive range of applications, from recovery of precious metals and platinum group metals from spent catalysts, mining ores and electronics waste, to removing the toxicity of industrial materials such as asbestos and air pollution control residues.

The plasma process transforms spent materials into substances that are benign to the environment and produces valuable by-products for use elsewhere in industry, thereby closing the recycling loop. Plasma technology is highly beneficial in metal recovery processes, generating a higher recovery rate than alternative technologies.
