Abstract:

This research program was conducted to provide a small bench-scale Plasma Waste Processing System to the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRLMLQ. The program was successful in this effort to develop, and set up a batch-type 15 kW Plasma Waste Processing Demonstration System at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. The system allows the AFRL to demonstrate laboratory processing of small quantities of waste materials up to 8 ounces using an alternating current AC plasma torch system in a custom-fabricated reactor unit. Larger scale systems for the processing of wastes can be developed and demonstrated in future research programs by evaluating the performance and characteristics of using this bench-type system.
