Waste processed by the Dynamis Energy 3.0 System has the lowest environmental impact of any technology that exists in the market today. Our emission goals are not only to meet the jurisdiction emission standards, but also to exceed them all, and eventually achieve zero emissions.



 Waste-to-energy facilities produce electricity with “less environmental impact than almost any other source of electricity,” according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “EPA recognizes the vital role of the nation’s municipal waste-to-energy industry,” wrote former EPA Administrator Marianne Lamont Horinko, and Assistant Administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation, Jeffrey Holmstead. Waste-to-energy facilities are a “clean, reliable, renewable source of energy.”

Waste-to-energy technology prevents the emission of eleven million metric tons of greenhouse gases (methane and carbon dioxide) that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere on an annual basis. In addition, waste-to-energy serves as an alternative to land disposal and power generation from fossil fuels, which prevents the release of more than 20,000 tons of nitrogen oxides and 2.2 million tons of volatile organic compounds.

The Dynamis process actively mitigates many potential emissions problems such as particulates, NOx, many toxic volatile metals and dioxins/furans.  However, our systems can incorporate either dry or wet scrubbers or other emission abatement systems to neutralize acid gases and absorb other dangerous by-products such as mercury, depending on the waste type destroyed.

Did you know?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. residents, businesses, and institutions produce approximately 4.62 pounds of waste per person, per day.  That is in excess of 240 million tons of MSW per year, of which the highest percentage of that amount is disposed of in our landfill's.
