We Have the Solution
In early 2010, Monarch Waste Technologies recognized an enormous and rapidly growing need for a better solution to the challenges of waste destruction.
Since 1995, more than 99% of the medical waste incinerators in the US have been closed.
The trend is obvious.
The need for an environmentally safe technology for the destruction of medical waste is a mandate across the country.
We have the solution.
After researching methods and other critical factors we identified a compact, small-scale, proven technology to create an environmentally-friendly replacement for incineration. We have designed a system specific to med-waste and have secured exclusives rights to the Pyrolysis technology for all regulated and hazardous wastes throughout North America.
Waste Receiving and Conditioning.
Arriving waste is weighed and directed to an enclosed secure location within the building. Following initial inspections and documentation, the waste is staged in a controlled manner and is prepared for the final destruction process.
Pyrolysis is defined as the decomposition of material using an external indirect heat in an oxygen free environment. This process is endothermic, in that it requires heat input to achieve the process. Utilizing moderately low temperatures, the waste slowly roasts as it absorbs the heat and decomposes within a sealed airless chamber. This allows the volatile organic compounds to boil off in the form of gas which can later be oxidised in a more controlled manner. Because the waste material is not directly subjected to these elevated temperatures and combustion gases in excess of 900C, harmful emissions, such as Dioxins and Furans, are simply not able to form. This unique difference allowed the federal EPA to give a special exemption for Pyrolysis as outlined within 40 CFR 60 and 62 rulings regarding incineration of Hazardous / Infectious Waste medical waste.
Renewable Energy (Heat) Generation.
The system produces thermal heat that can be used to create steam to offset the use of fossil fuels, or can be converted directly to electricity with our power generation system.
