CLAIM has successfully tested the project’s technology – the pyrolizer
CLAIM is aiming at creating innovative and sustainable technologies, which will induce the spread of marine plastic pollution. One such technology is the pyrolizer, designed and developed by IRIS s.r.l. Its’ main function is to clean, re-use and monitor larger plastic pieces.
By exploiting plasma-fueled high temperature, the pyrolizer transforms solid waste into a combustible gas, called syngas, and a recyclable solid residue. The process does not produce dioxins and furans, an issue with many thermal processes. Instead, it cultivates syngas, which can be re-used on fuel ships and heat ports.
It is important for CLAIM to engage the wider public in the process of fulfilling our goals. Therein, we present you the latest project video, produced to showcase the specifications and processes behind the pyrolizer. Throughout the recording, the co-founder and CEO of IRIS – Manuel Lai, gives a detailed explanation of the technology’s functions and operations.
