Plasma tech soon to help waste disposal
May 28, 2008
By Harish Joshi
Bharuch: Ankleshwar is all set to become a role model in the country in days to come. US-based
Plasma Energy Applied Technology Inc (PEAT) has kicked off a pilot project to set up a plasmabased technology for disposing of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste material released
from various chemicals industries in Ankleshwar. The pilot plant has been functional since the
past three months now. Jyoti Om Research Center's, director, C.B. Upasani who is also the
official coordinating agency for United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
said "We have been asked by UNIDO to under a program of clean technology transfer from
developed countries to developing countries" He added "As Ankleshwar is facing serious
problem of environment protection we studied various technology applied world over and
finally selected the plasma technology for waste management PEAT signed memorandum of
understanding with Ankleshwar Industries Association (AIA), to promote the new technology."
Jose Capote, chief technical officer of PEAT told TOI "The new invention will be beneficial to the
society as it does not generate any of the toxic gases. The plasma-based technology
decomposes chemical molecules from the root, without use of Oxygen, it generates Carbon
Monoxide and Hydrogen together which is known as synthetic gas or ionized gas at high
temperature capable of conducting electricity and steam which is useful for industries. Our aim
is to convert waste streams into commercial commodity products which creates renewable
source of energy and value-added products." "We have plans to set up plasma project on a
large-scale with an investment of Rs. 40 Crore. The proposed project will have disposal capacity
of 30MT per day and it would generate 1.5 MW electricity and steam. As there will be no
carbon emission hence a project would also get substantial carbon credits, said Upasani. After
successful demonstration of pilot plant, which has been seen by industrialists and state
government officials, project report for 30MT per day plant shall be prepared and submitted to
state government and AIA for consideration." said Upsani.
