Near Zero Emissions Help Protect Environment

Our sustainable Waste to Energy™ process is environmentally safe for any city in the world. We produce minimal byproducts for beneficial use, and near Zero Emissions throughout the entire Waste to Energy™ process. We can partner and integrate with your existing ecosystem of vendors and technologies, or, optionally, deliver and operate a full Waste to Energy™ facility.

Our Process Doesn’t Produce Solid Waste – We Produce Clean Burning Fuel!

Aurutris does not produce more waste, pollution or generate tons of waste for landfills. We produce clean burning fuel! An analysis of our Engineered Pulverized Fuel (EPF), done by an independent engineering firm in support of a municipality’s due diligence, concluded that “EPF is properly classified as a fuel product rather than a solid waste.” This is supported by various state departments of environmental health as well as by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Aurutris’s Engineered Pulverized Fuel meets the legitimacy criteria of Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials (NHSM) Rule (40 CFR 241.3 (d)(1)). In addition, processing the MSW and wastewater treatment sludge in the RRS reduces its mass and changes its chemical characteristics to produce a valuable commodity, Engineered Pulverizer Fuel, that has a meaningful heating value for energy recovery that higher than coal, and superior, in that it burns cleanly. Our Engineered Pulverized Fuel (EPF) is properly viewed as a fuel product and not a solid waste under the Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials Rule.

We Don’t Burn Municipal Solid Waste – Unlike Most Legacy Solutions

Most mass burn, incineration, and waste-to-energy systems have large smoke stacks that release pollutants into our air, water and food chain. They still require landfills for disposal of most of the end-products of their energy production. Most of us realize that there have been very limited options to process the existing waste and that these systems, with all of their undesirable environmental impacts, have still been the best choices available to us in the past. In the final analysis, even with the best pre-processing, these facilities still burn or bury municipal solid waste.
