Green Wave specializes in environmentally focused energy generation and waste management solutions and we recognize the importance of a shift away from the traditional landfill model. Specifically, Green Wave is focusing on the rural counties where few landfills exist, leading to extremely high transportation and disposal fees.
The Green Wave solution encompasses a plasma waste-to-energy gasification facility to serve these rural counties. With cheaper average tipping fees, no negative environmental impacts, and clean renewable energy as a byproduct, the Green Wave facility will deliver cutting edge waste management solutions to a traditionally low-tech industry.
Built around a complex gasification technology, Green Wave’s waste management facility utilizes plasma arc technology, which safely and efficiently converts virtually any non-recyclable, commercial and residential solid waste stream into a clean and valuable resource.
This technology is NOT incineration and rather than burning waste, our plasma gasifier extracts energy from waste without taking the ignition phase all the way to combustion. Instead the combustion process is interrupted in its early stages through oxygen starvation. Temperatures and pressures are raised to thermochemically decompose matter into what is called a synthesis gas (syngas). Green Wave will use the syngas to fuel power generation equipment. Secondary uses for the synthetic gas could also be to power the very waste collection trucks that deliver the waste to our facility.
