The combined effect of pyrolysis, gasification, high temperature oxidation and
    advanced NOx and acid gas abatement minimises pollution to extremely low levels.
    The system may be regarded as the Best Practical Environmental Option (BPEO) for
    the thermal destruction of waste. The design also meets the more general objective
    of promoting the best environmental options for waste disposal.

    Gaseous emissions from Compact Power plant processing MSW are well within all
    integrated pollution control standards and compare very favourably with typical results
    from modern incineration plant.

    Reduced visual impact

    Proximity principle

    Waste is processed close to source and recovered materials and energy can be used
    locally. Transportation impact is greatly reduced.

    Small solutions for total waste management

    With the multi-fuel capacity of the plant, a community can develop a local facility to
    meet total local waste to energy requirements.

    Climate change

    Energy recovery and CHP up to 80% of the energy value in the waste is recovered in
    the form of usable heat and power.

    Affordable heat and job creation.- the small size of Compact Power systems is ideal
    for communities heating and industrial CHP applications.

    Solid residues

    MSW input can be reduced to c.15% by weight (after materials recovery) and c.10%
    by volume. Ash residues have been shown to be inert and non-leachable and may
    be used in the manufacture of building materials.
