Pyrolysis is defined as the endothermic decomposition of a condensed
substance by the action of heat. This technique does not involve
reactions with oxygen or any other reagents, however, it may be
conducted in their presence.The pyrolysis technology differs from incineration because:
- It is an endothermic reaction which absorbs heat. Combustion, on the other hand, is an exothermic reaction which releases heat.
occurs in the presence of an insignificant amount of oxygen.
Incineration, on the other hand, requires a significant amount of oxygen
- Pyrolysis needs a continuous external energy source.
3V Tech has developed pyrolysis applications for industrial waste,
sludge, tars and refinery waste.
It is ideal for waste types that
currently have limited options for treatment or disposal.
