APT-HP High-power plasma torch - A direct replacement for fossil fuel burners in industrial applications, with greatly reduced greenhouse gas emissions
Over 30% of global GHG emissions come from the energy-intensive industry sector, necessitating mitigation options beyond energy efficiency to achieve major reductions. PyroGenesis’ APT-HP presents an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuel burners by producing thermal energy from low-carbon electricity for use in industrial applications. The high power of the APT-HP (up to 1 MW) enables a plasma plume exceeding 5,000 C and transformation of materials to valuable products from various industrial and waste materials. The APT-HP offers a lightweight, vortex-stabilized, compact configuration which can be retrofitted into existing installations such as iron ore furnaces and cement kilns, featuring long electrode life, low maintenance, automated operation, and a high level of safety and reliability. When replacing conventional fossil fuel burners, plasma torches potentially reduce operating costs by up to 30% and GHG emissions by about 250 MT CO2e per GW·h when using hydro power.
