MAGS provides a sustainable, profitable, and ecologically safe alternative to traditional waste management and energy generation for any habitat. This solution relies on the patented “Auto Gasification” process to enable the treatment of all combustible waste on-site, generate clean energy and soil-enriching biochar to be used within the habitat, while producing clean air emissions. MAGS destroys waste on-site, reducing its volume by 95%. Bags of waste are introduced into the machine without pre-treatment, sorting or excess handling. Most types of waste can be treated including infectious waste, food, papers, pharmaceuticals, plastics, packaging, and more. MAGS is an excellent solution for many market sectors and offers economic and environmental advantages due to its energy recovery, clean emissions, carbon sequestration in the soil, reduced environmental footprint, as well as the elimination of transport, incineration and landfilling, resulting in significant GHG reduction.
