What is Supercritical Water Oxidation?

Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) is a physical-thermal process powered by water above its critical point (374°C and 221 bar) and air that yields a highly effective oxidation reaction that completely eliminates organic compounds. The reaction generates energy and safe products that can be recovered and reused.

How does it work?

AirSCWO harnesses an efficient decentralized solution for treating a broad range of waste feedstocks rapidly, continuously, cost-effectively and with unprecedented reliability.

374Water’s AirSCWO units are compact, modular, prefabricated, energy efficient, and cost effective.
