RemTec International announced today the extension of its five-year agreement with Dolomatrix International, Ltd. to be the exclusive representative for SRL Plasma’s Plascon® equipment in North America, designed to destroy Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).
The DoloMatrix destruction technology, along with RemTec’s patented recovery and reclaiming equipment, produces carbon offset credits that exceed the requirements of a newly released Climate Action Reserve (CAR) Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol. This protocol delivers permanent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions for the carbon compliance market.
“The combination of our technologies and services provides the ultimate in transparency, tracking and accountability. In addition, Plasma Arc Destruction is environmentally superior to high temperature incineration,” says Richard Marcus, president and CEO of RemTec. “Our alliance with DoloMatrix provides the compliance-offset market a high quality carbon offset for several reasons. First, the Destruction Efficiency (DRE) is extremely high - exceeding 99.9999%, and it is environmentally superior compared to high-temperature incineration that burns an assortment of hazardous waste products in order to reduce their halocarbon load as a percentage of total harmful emissions. In contrast, Plasma Arc Technology is environmentally friendly because emissions to the atmosphere are de minimus, the rate of dioxin and furan emissions is lower by orders of magnitude, the only effluent is harmless salt water, and it has a lower carbon footprint.”
Marcus continues, “We can provide superior carbon offset credits because RemTec and DoloMatrix combined technologies use Technology & Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) testing methodology specifically designed to measure the destruction of ODS. In addition, our detailed tracking and documentation system follows individual shipments from the source to final destruction. When combined with our online real-time computer monitoring, our system provides complete transparency to carbon offset providers, verifiers and outside regulatory agencies on a 24-hour basis.
“This represents the first phase in our efforts to establish regional facilities that offer cradle-to-grave management of halons and refrigerant gases that are high ozone depleters, or that are high in global warming potential. In addition to our existing processing plant in Bowling Green, OH, future operations are also planned in the Middle East and Asia.”
