QCI-MSW™ biomass is made of organic materials that people throw away in the trash, such as cardboard, paper towels, banana peels, or any plant based materials that make it in the waste bin. The biomass separated by the trommel screen and air classifier consists of short, clean cellulose fibers in small (1/4-1/3 inch), essentially dry pellets.  The best use for these dried pellets are as a solid fuel, to provide renewable energy from a domestic source that is much cleaner than current sources.

​QCI-MSW™ Biomass

  • Food, vegetable wastes, paper stocks, and lawn clippings are reduced to fibers and are thermo-mechanically pulped.

  • The process and the Biomass recovered from the MSW meet the CEN 15747 requirements and qualify (US EPA) as a renewable fuel.

  • The ultra-clean QCI-MSW™ Biomass higher heating value (HHV) is on average 8,200 BTU’s per lb. (as tested per US EPA 2015 MSW composition).

  • 100% of waste is sterilized; all bacteria and viruses are killed.

  • The QCI-MSW™ Biomass byproduct is virtually odor free.



MSW passes through an advanced autoclave, which sterilizes the materials making it void of all pathogens, with the remaining material containing very little odor.  Under negative pressure, the air handling system removes air from the reception hall via standard ducting; the ducting varies in quantities depending on the building area, and the type of operation that is taking place. The air is pulled through a dust separator before it's then sent through the odor control section. This process keeps any unwanted emissions or odors from escaping the plant, which keeps all surrounding communities clean and waste-free, something many incinerators and landfills fail to do today.
