Rapid return on investment

The nature of industrial waste is highly diverse, but is often associated with extremely high costs for disposal.  In many cases onsite treatment with MAGSTM or WETTTM results in a rapid return on investment (ROI).  The economic benefits differ from one application to another based on location, the type and quantity of waste and local economic arrangements.

Terragon has developed an economic model that can be used to quickly calculate the potential ROI of any application of MAGSTM for industrial waste.

Solid Hazardous Waste

Many operations generate small amounts of potentially hazardous or dangerous waste that requires special treatment:

  • Explosives
  • Fertilizers
  • Chemicals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Cosmetics
  • etc.

This type of waste is picked up by specialized companies at a cost that often exceeds $1,000 per tonne. MAGSTM is capable of securely destroying this waste and providing energy for use by the location.

Hazardous organic waste, often as by-products or as contaminated packaging, for example from explosive and fertilizer manufacturing, can be treated by MAGSTM, as can pharmaceutical wastes and expired products.

Liquid Oily Waste

Some industries generate oily liquid waste, or high calorific value liquid waste that is considered hazardous and disposed of at significant cost, often around $1,000 per tonne:

  • Cosmetics
  • Foods
  • Petrochemicals
  • Lubricants
  • Polymers
  • Sludges

MAGSTM is an ideal technology for converting these hazardous streams into energy within the factory where they are produced. Liquid waste is pumped directly into MAGSTM and there is no need for an operator to load waste, which dramatically improves the ROI.

For liquid waste that is primarily aqueous or of low calorific value, WETTTM may be an ideal approach to decontaminating the stream for reuse inside the factory or safe discharge.  Clean-in-place (CIP) operations may generate wastewater that is especially well-suited for treatment by WETTTM for reuse rather than discharge.

Other Benefits of Onsite Treatment for Industry

In addition to the cost benefits, clean emissions and energy generation, onsite treatment is associated with a number of other benefits:

Space Savings and Cleaner Operations

MAGSTM occupies a small space and eliminates that need for storage of waste in controlled environments or large refrigerators. Facilities remain clean when waste does not have to be stored onsite and potential for contamination is avoided.

Reduced Long-Term Liabilities

Companies are increasingly liable for their waste from cradle-to-grave. Waste discharged to a waste treatment service provider involves significant risk.  Onsite treatment allows companies to certify that waste has been completely eliminated within their facilities and eliminates long term liabilities.

Company Image

Companies can reduce their environmental footprint and become more energy efficient and sustainable by converting their waste to energy within their facilities. This can be used by the company to improve public image.
