What is Carbonisation?

Waste Circology’s Organic Carbonisation System (OCS), is a closed, low-emissions process that transforms organic solid waste into a rich char-carbon compound. This process reduces organic feedstock to its basic carbon constituency. The OCS process developed by Waste Circology is based on two main parameters: 1. Utilising high temperature in an inert atmosphere, and 2. Excerpting pressure of 10 bars, with a patented catalytic design.

What kind of waste can be treated?

A wide range of physical materials and chemical substances have been trialed and processed using Waste Circology’s OCS process. This included many kinds of organic matter, municipal solid waste, hospital solid waste, expired drugs, human waste and blood. – anything with an organic component. OCS provides consistently good results using shredded car tyres as a feedstock.

Waste Circology’s OCS plant has processed a wide range of these organic materials, in a series of controlled and extensive trials using a variety of parameters that replicate a plethora of environmental circumstances that impact the feedstock. These trials have reduced the processing time to less than 10 minutes per batch

What are the benefits and applications of biochar?

Increases Water Retention

Good Soil Microbes

Increases Soil Fertility

Enhance Plant Growth

Sequesters Carbon Dioxide

What are the environmental benefits through implementation of Waste Circology’s OCS processes?

The environmental benefits of the implementation of Waste Circology’s OCS processes are not confined to the processing of organic waste only. The patented combustion-free, zero-emissions process, turns all types of organic waste – that would otherwise become landfill – into high purity char that has many environmental and industrial applications.

This char can be a significant commercial by-product of Waste Circology’s OCS processes. According to the Climate Foundation ”Biochar (biological charcoal) draws carbon from the atmosphere, providing a carbon sink on agricultural lands. Biochar is biologically unavailable, sequestering fixed carbon in the soil for centuries to millennia, providing a tool to absorb carbon from the atmosphere.

How can Waste Circology help my business operation?

A Waste Circolgy Organic Carbonisation System plant will provide benefits that can:

  1. Provide an alternative method of organic waste disposal to eliminate landfill.
  2. Develop new ways of repurposing carbon derivatives from the process into additional revenue streams.
  3. Have a positive impact on Climate Change issues and management, by eliminating carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions.
  4. Be commercially viable.
