The PEM Process

INENTEC Plasma Enhanced Melter

Transforming virtually any waste into ultra-clean energy

PEM gasifer process

Gasifier Process Detail

Learn how our gasifier converts waste into materials and energy.

Pem step1 downdraft Gasifer

(800°C~1,200°C)
Down-draft gasifier

First stage reaction of waste with oxygen and steam at temperature. Down draft design produces a cleaner, hydrogen rich raw syngas product. Active grate to control transfer of material to PEM.


Pem step2 PEM

(~1,400°C)
Plasma Enhanced Melter

Char and ash materials pass to the PEM where the plasma arc gasifies remaining materials achieving nearly 100% recovery of the organic fraction in syngas phase. Arc temp can reach 10,000°C. The immediate area around the arc is about 5,000°C. Plenum temp varies between 1,200-1,400°C

Pem step3 TRC

(~1,400°C)
TRC

Additional time at temperature allows reactions to reach equilibrium and fully destroy tars and oils resulting in the cleaner raw syngas.

Pem step4 syngas

Syngas

Standard industrial technologies used to clean and condition raw syngas in preparation for use in selected back-end technology.

Pem step5 moltenglassbath

(1200°C-1500°C)
Molten glass bath

Inorganic waste fraction is recovered as metal ingots and/or vitrified glass slag.

Pem step6 synglass cleanup filter

Syngas Conditioning

Standard industrial technologies are used to clean and condition raw syngas in preparation for use in selected back-end technology.
