BORDEAUX, France, November 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Europlasma announces today booking an order for the engineering and supply of a plasma heating system for the treatment of intermediate-level radioactive waste on behalf of a world leader in the nuclear industry. This contract, exceeding € 1 million, is part of the French program «programme d'Investissements d'Avenir», in line with the 2016-2018 national plan for the management of radioactive waste (PNGMDR).
The plasma process relies on an innovation: the oxygen torch. The use of pure oxygen as plasma gas (instead of air) optimizes the combustion of the organic fraction of waste and eliminates any formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the process; it also reduces the energy consumption of the torch due to unnecessary heating of the nitrogen in the air. The mineral and metal fractions are vitrified and molten.
This innovative process on an industrial scale, and successfully tested in 2016, allows Europlasma Industries to position itself in a new market segment: the treatment of intermediate-level long-lived waste (IL-LL).
C.E.O. Jean-Eric Petit, declares: «We are proud to offer this innovation. This new contract demonstrates the capacity of Europlasma Industries to expand into new markets with large well-known industrial partners who placed their trust in the know-how and expertise of the Group».
At the heart of environmental issues, EUROPLASMA designs and develops innovative plasma solutions for renewable energy generation and hazardous waste recovery, as well as related applications for multi-sector companies wishing to reduce their environmental footprint.
EUROPLASMA is listed on Alternext (FR0000044810-ALEUP). For more information: http://www.europlasma.com
