What makes CTEC so special?
The system’s overall energy efficiency is 82%
Can be transported using sea containers - little or no visual impact enabling rapid deployment at site
Globally the cleanest technology to dispose of plastics!
Continuously monitored using MCERTS certified analysers creating close to zero emissions
Full service is available on call to back up warranties with key components having a swop-in/swop-out option
Revenues are generated from gate fees for waste, electricity sales, heat sales and subsidy support where available. For example the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive, pay-back periods between 2 - 3 years with a 20 year life cycle
CTEC technology is NOT incineration (where chemical bonds are broken by oxidation) and does not use heated exhaust gases to drive turbines with traditional toxic emissions and other associated issues of poor conversion plus high carbon footprint.
CTEC’s proprietary system optimises gasification (chemical bonds are broken by thermal energy) to maximise conversion of solid waste feedstocks to Syngas. The production of syngas is maximised by CTEC’s proprietary monitoring and control system. Syngas is combusted under slightly over-stoichiometric conditions and the resultant hot gas stream produced by CTEC’s patented process powers a turbine to generate electrical and thermal energy with minimal emissions more efficiently than incineration.
Syngas is formed through a two-stage gasification process in oxygen-starved conditions – this process contrasts with typical waste incineration (850°C hot grate) which generates high chloride levels. The primary stage is endothermic - this harnesses the Boudouard reaction to produce syngas. In an oxygen starved chamber, there is no flame combustion, in stark contrast to incineration.
Clean Thermodynamic Energy Conversion Limited (“CTEC”) is a private English company which designs and supplies its proprietary advanced gasification system from the UK. Over the last decade it has developed, tested and certified its unique system and holds 16 international patents for its designs.
Traditionally, non-recyclable waste has not been disposed in a sustainable manner, usually dumped in landfills or incinerated with high carbon emissions. The CTEC technology diverts significant levels of non-recyclable waste from landfill, generating full circular economy value.
Versatile CTEC system does this by processing various forms of plastic, biological and organic waste streams into renewable energy, renewable heat and residual reusable materials. This meets the most stringent UK and European Emission Standards with no material toxic emissions into the atmosphere, delivering carbon negative solution with on-site processing eliminating all transport related carbon footprint.
CTEC has successfully operated its pilot plant at the Newhaven Port for the last three years, delivering proven results with full certification, as a showcase of its capabilities to process a huge variety of different waste steams transforming it into the lowest carbon sustainable energy.
