Atıkların bertarafı ile deniz suyunun tuzsuzlaştırılması üzerine A.B.D. kaynaklı bir projenin haberini dikkatinize sunarım. Plasma Gasification of Waste Meets Desalination Onboard Ship Reno, Nevada based Vision Plasma Systems ( PINKSHEETS : VLNX ) - which has developed a mobile plasma gasification system for the complete remediation of hazardous wastes - is in discussions to retrofit retired ocean vessels to function as floating waste remediation sites and water desalination plants. The company said that the proposed project would be developed in partnership with Planet Hydra, a mobile sea water desalination specialist. According to Vision Plasma the plan includes the installation of three Arc Master I plasma arc gasification units on deck, and three large water desalination units below deck. The dual purpose vessels are planned to be capable of remediating up to 15 tons (13.6 tonnes) per day of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes and transfer the energy from the gasification process to the water desalination units. The company said that the vessel would return up to 3 million gallons (11.4 million litres) of clean water to shore, producing a potential $70 million in gross revenues per vessel per year. Vision Plasma Systems and Planet Hydra have identified a wide market for this specialty vessel with Arc Master I units embarked for high end resort uses, littoral coastal mining industries in Africa and Southeast Asia and UN sponsored distribution to disadvantaged third world coastal communities. According to the plasma specialist the projected need is for 90 Arc Master I units to be deployed in 30 vessels from 2014 to 2018, with an initial sales value to Vision Plasma Systems at $360 million. Arc Master I The developer claimed that the Arc Master I mobile unit is the first of its kind, and was designed to deploy a clean and green remediation solution to various worldwide corporations, military, government, and municipal customers. The company added that the unit is capable of converting up to 5 tons (4.5 tonnes) per day of hazardous wastes and other matter into syngas, net electricity, and recyclable metal ingot, without any air emissions or ash from the gasification process. The system is built inside two ISO 40' metal containers is entirely self-powering, creating its own energy from the waste that it processes, and creating up to 240KW of usable electricity at the site, according to Vision Plasma.
