Minergy specializes in the vitrification, or melting, of waste materials. Minergy has successfully commercialized technologies for recycling high-volume wastes, including auto shredder residue, mine tailings, municipal sludge, paper mill sludge, and contaminated sediment and soils, into reusable, inert glass.
Minergy’s approach to treating fly ash/bottom ash, contaminated soils, sediments and sludges is to focus on the glass formation process, recognizing that an ancillary benefit of the process’s high temperature and residence time effectively destroys organic contaminants and produces an inert, usable product. Converting wastes into glass aggregate through the process of vitrification provides a permanent disposal solution while eliminating future liabilities. Minergy’s vitrification technologies meet today’s challenge of implementing innovative waste treatment by providing acceptable levels of treatment in a cost-effective manner.
