Abstract:

The Vitracycle program was a research and development program aimed at developing a solid waste treatment technology to compliment General Atomics GAs existing supercritical water oxidation SCWO technology. While SCWO is for the treatment of liquid wastes, Vitracycle was designed as a treatment technology for solid wastes. GA partnered with Asian Pacific Environmental Technologies APET to develop a plasma arc vitrification PAV system to process solid wastes.
