Compare Waste Treatment Technologies

As an aid in helping you assess whether Plascon is the best solution to suit your waste treatment needs, the table below provides a quick reference for comparison of the most common waste treatment technologies in the marketplace. The most important characteristics of Plascon, high temperature incineration gas phase chemical reduction, base catalysed dechlorination, cement kilns and thermal oxidation are outlined.

There are of course many other factors to consider such as capital and operational costs, regulatory approval in your jurisdiction, community perception and implementation time and we would be happy to discuss your particular situation and provide an obligation free assessment.
