Tetronics & DSTL – Mobile technology for destruction of chemical weapons (BBC News)
New innovative mobile technology for the safe and environmentally responsible destruction of chemical weapons
Tetronics is a global leader in using plasma arc technology to process challenging waste streams to make them safe. The current demonstration project with Dstl will involve simulated chemical agents and agent precursors being subjected to the plasma arc destruction in a specially designed chamber, to rapidly react or transform the hazardous agents eliminating the hazards. The plasma arc chamber uses intense temperature and ultra-violet light to maximise the destruction of hazardous components in seconds.
