Our expert staff of scientists, chemists, and engineers have developed proprietary technologies that solve several major pollution stream problems at a fraction of the cost than much larger companies who offer little to no profitable outcome.  These solutions have been designed to eliminate pollution and repurpose these fundamentally important molecules within many of the world’s most difficult waste streams – waste plastic, municipal solid waste, scrap tires, and more.  Their efforts have produced remarkable results in generating significant energy and valuable ASTM qualified byproducts.
