SRL Plasma Pty Ltd operates, manufactures and markets the PLASCON® electric-arc plasma hazardous waste destruction process. This patented "in-flight," state-of-the-art technology is in commercial use in a number of critical hazardous waste applications in Australia as well as EPA licensed integrated hazardous wastes treatment facilities in the United States and Mexico. It has also been used in the United Kingdom and there are currently four units in use in Japan. In the late 90’s a dedicated facility was established for the destruction of CFCs, HCFCs and Halons in Australia. The PLASCON® has been approved for use in many international jurisdictions for environmentally safe destruction of hazardous chemicals and gasses.

PLASCON® is designed to treat concentrated hazardous wastes that others either can't destroy or would rather avoid. The process has been applied in some of the most severe applications since 1992 and we are ready to solve your hazardous waste problem.

SRL Plasma can supply a compact, relocateable skid unit to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers including: governments, waste destruction companies and chemical producers.
