The United States, alone, creates over 250 million tons of waste each year. Landfills are exceeding their capacities all over the world. Not only that, they are major emitters of greenhouse gases and sources of harmful environment contamination. No one has found a way to cleanly and profitably convert all of this waste. Until now.
FastOx leverages the centuries-old blast furnace, as an efficient and scalable means to convert nearly any form of waste into renewable energy. This technology has several advantages:
Because FastOx gasifiers utilize pure oxygen injection, Sierra Energy can target complex segments of the waste market. These markets include hazardous waste, MSW, industrial waste, medical waste, and construction and demolition (C&D) waste.
Thorough Waste Conversion
FastOx gasifiers can thoroughly convert waste without creating toxic products that require additional disposal.
The straightforward design of the blast furnace provides FastOx gasifiers with several maintenance and operation advantages, including the lack of moving or complicated parts and minimal maintenance or down-time.
Massive Size and Scalability
FastOx can scale from 5 to well over 10,000 tons per day in a single unit.
Sierra Energy can convert existing, idled blast furnaces into a commercially-viable FastOx gasifier, saving millions in initial capital investment.
FastOx gasifiers can leverage the global support industry that already exists to service blast furnaces.
