Here are some key phrases that describe the Redoxint project:
1. Completely ecological industrial platform without any gas emittion or other polluting materials.
2. Burning thousands of tonnes of household waste annually per furnace (without needing selection).
3. Alternative fuel production at competitive prices and in massive amounts.
4. Waste processing and industrial pollution neutralising of any kind (even burning gasses)
5. The re-launching and sustaining of the chemical industry on an ecological basis.
Redoxint project introduces a series of novelties at conception, which requires design and simulation, in order to have a comprehensive view on technology
Pollution appears when the technological progress reaches a level where it starts having a major impact upon the environment and the by-products management is not prioritised because of economic reasons. Massive gas emission with greenhouse effect are the result of a faulty attitude towards technology. In the same category one should include household and industrial waste management.
The level of pollution is so high that a change in attitude is needed towards the environment.
The Redoxint procedure is complex without being complicated, combines existing technologies with innovation and it is in one word: The Future.
One of the most dangerous products for the environment are carbides. The release of carbon monoxide in the air is a big financial and energy related issue. The first patent that the Redoxing project is based upon describes a procedure and a processing equipment that processes carbides in a Tunnel Furnace.
The Tunnel Furnace used as an electrochemical reactor provides result gases at reasonable temperatures for them to be used as primary raw material for synthesis processing equipments (Fischer-Tropsch, Urea).
All these equipment can process huge amounts of gases that were released in the special temperature conditions specific to the Tunnel Furnace.
Carbide production happens at very high temperatures and the energy produced by the electrochemical reaction can be used for burning the household waste. The released gases of this burning procedure (at more than 1000°C) will enter the synthesis processing equipment, without any gas being released in the atmosphere.
The massive carbide production is justified by the use in the dehydration of ethyl alcohol obtained from the fermentation technology and cellulose producing technology. Both of them have alcohol in water as outcome.
The second patent included in the Redoxint project deals with the utilisation of the carbide obtained in eco-friendly conditions for the dehydration of ethyl alcohol. The dehydrated ethyl alcohol is the alternative energy source of the future when the cost is regulated by the Redoxint procedure. Also the massive quantities of acetylene obtained is an exceptional raw material in the synthesis chemical industry. Acetylene is the raw material used in the chemical industry that leads to the production of all the organic products, from rubber to plastic materials and drugs, dyes, alternative fuel or synthetic fibres. I do not want to insist any further on the major importance of the acetylene, the main point is that acetylene is the most important raw material for the organic and synthesis chemical industry.
At the end of the Redoxint production cycle, there are two main products: Ca(OH)2 (slaked lime) and the ash produced by the waste burning, both of them used as construction materials.
The Redoxint project is a perfectly eco-friendly industrial platform which gives the opportunity for other processing equipments to be attached to the existing platforms for processing by-products and for utilising the renewable energy of the Redoxint platform. There can be attached biodiesel processing equipments (which use alcohol), food industry and construction material equipments. The Tunnel Furnace can even process chemical industry gas by-products.
This kind of industrial platforms can be built anywhere in the world, no exception. The platform’s dependency is only on the amount of green-house gases that need to be processed and house hold waste that needs to be burned. By combining more production centres, the production can reach millions of tons of house-hold waste and just as much greenhouse gases that need to be processed each year.
In the case that the Redoxint technology has to be extended, it is flexible enough to permit it. The amounts of dehydrated alcohol, biodiesel and synthetic fuel from the Fischer-Tropsch equipment are comparable at price with the conventional energy sources. Also in the case of several platforms combined, there is always the possibility of completely replacing the conventional energy sources.
The Redoxint technology is exceptional through simplicity and through the combination of already in use technologies with innovative one on one industrial platform. The capacity of becoming highly modular and the adaptability of Redoxint is sufficient to allow the reshape of the existing technological industry platforms.
In the case of chemical industry, one can imagine and adapt massive equipments for sea water desalinisation, massive construction material production (like concrete), and all the platforms that can be described as eco-friendly and with a good waste management. In this way, the Redoxint project makes neutralising and reusing of massive gas exhaust from a concrete plant for example, possible.
