AirSCWO™ Technology for Municipal Waste and Sanitation Management

374Water AirSCWO technology is an opportunity to make an environmental impact for municipal waste management looking forward.

Municipal waste management is a critical challenge we face everywhere today. With the population growing, so is the amount of waste we produce. In fact, it is estimated that we produce over 2 billion tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) each year. This waste may appear in a variety of forms, including food waste, construction debris, and hazardous waste such as PFAS and other ‘Forever Chemicals’.

Traditional methods of waste disposal, such as landfills and incineration, have a number of drawbacks. Landfills produce methane, a greenhouse gas that is more potent than carbon dioxide. Incineration can produce air pollution and hazardous byproducts.

374Water’s AirSCWO™ technology is a sustainable solution for municipal waste management and sanitation. AirSCWO is a thermal oxidation process that uses supercritical water to destroy organic and inorganic materials. Supercritical water is water that has been heated to a temperature above its critical point (374.15°C and 221.2 bar) and pressure above its vapor pressure. Under these conditions, water loses its liquid properties and becomes a supercritical fluid.

AirSCWO™ has a number of advantages over traditional methods of waste disposal. It is more efficient, more environmentally friendly, and more cost-effective.

Efficiency – AirSCWO™ technology is a highly efficient process. It can destroy up to 99.99% of organic materials. This means that close to none of the waste material is left behind, which can help to reduce environmental impact and save cost on waste disposal costs.

Environmental solution – AirSCWO™ is an sustanable and environmental safe process. It does not produce any emissions or hazardous byproducts. This makes it an ideal choice for municipalities.

Cost-Effectiveness – AirSCWO™ technology enables a cost-effective process. It does not require the use of hazardous chemicals or expensive equipment. This makes it a good choice for municipalities that are looking for a cost-effective way to manage their waste.

Benefits for Municipalities

374Water AirSCWO™ technology can provide a number of benefits for municipalities, including:

  • Reduced waste disposal costs
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Improved air quality
  • Increased compliance with environmental regulations
  • Improved public relations

374Water AirSCWO technology is an opportunity to make an environmental impact for municipal waste management looking forward.

In addition to the benefits listed above, AirSCWO™ technology also offers a number of other advantages for municipalities, including:

  • Reduced energy consumption: AirSCWO™ reduces energy consumption by up to 80% compared to traditional waste treatment methods. 
  • Reduced emissions: AirSCWO™ Assists to reduce emissions of greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide and methane. This is because AirSCWO™ does not produce any emissions of these gasses.
  • Improved air quality: AirSCWO can help to improve air quality by reducing the number of pollutants in the air. This is because AirSCWO destroys pollutants, such as dioxins and furans, which are harmful to human health and the environment.
