proprietary Fibercycle™ process

  • The System uses recovered biomass to power the plant (biomass meets CEN 15747)
  • 100% of waste is sterilized; all bacteria and viruses are killed
  • Animal bi-products and co-incidental medical waste are sterilized
  • Glass products are broken into smaller fragments
  • Plastic products are cleaned, sterilized, and reduced in size for QCI-ESTECH™ recycling
  • Metals are sterilized, cleaned, and crushed 
  • Labels are stripped off
  • Biomass fibers from food, vegetable wastes, paper stocks, and lawn clippings are thermo- mechanically pulped
  • Common household chemicals are hydrolyzed and detoxified

QCI-ESTECH™ utilizes a revolutionary new process to handle solid waste.  The core of QCI-ESTECH’s technology is a sophisticated autoclave; the rotating autoclave performs a thermo-mechanical pulping process on the wastes, liberating biomass while sterilizing all of the contents, and accomplishing other valuable functions.  The high-pressure, high-temperature steam along with mechanical forces in a rotating vessel significantly reduce the weight and volume of the municipal solid waste by breaking down the materials.


During this innovative process, recyclable materials are stripped, sterilized, and automatically sorted in preparation for further conversion into “very profitable” high-end byproducts and the recycling of others.  The QCI-ESTECH™ technology is capable of reducing up to 100% of the unsorted municipal solid waste by means of converting it to recoverable biomass, mixed plastics, various metals, and sterile inert residual (less than 5%) content that is readily acceptable to landfills or use as architectural fill, road bedding, etc.   Additionally, the massive reduction of waste sent to landfills will not disrupt the current business economics, instead provide an opportunity for additional revenue streams to waste management companies.


The MSW passes through an autoclave, which sterilizes the materials and makes it void of all pathogens, and contains very little odor.  Under negative pressure, the air handling system removes air from the reception hall via standard ducting in varying quantities depending on the building area, and the type of operation that is taking place. The air is pulled through a dust separator before the odor control section. This process allows the communities surrounding the plants to remain odor free, which most MSW incinerators fail to do.
