About Startech -- The Environment and Energy Company
Startech Environmental is an environment and energy industry company engaged in the production and sale of its innovative, proprietary plasma processing equipment known as the Plasma Converter System™.
The Plasma Converter System safely and economically destroys wastes, no matter how hazardous or lethal, and turns most into useful and valuable products. In doing so, the System protects the environment and helps to improve the public health and safety. The System achieves closed-loop elemental recycling to safely and irreversibly destroy Municipal Solid Waste, organics and inorganics, solids, liquids and gases, hazardous and non-hazardous waste, industrial by-products and also items such as "e-waste," medical waste, chemical industry waste and other specialty wastes, while converting many of them into useful commodity products that can include metals and a synthesis-gas called Plasma Converted Gas (PCG)™.
Among the many commercial uses for PCG, is its potential use to produce "green electrical power" and Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) fuels such as methanol and synthetic
higher-alcohol "alternative" fuels. Hydrogen, for use and sale, can also be separated and recovered from the Startech PCG synthesis gas mixture.
The Startech Plasma Converter is essentially a manufacturing system that also produces commodity products from feedstocks processed that were previously regarded as wastes.
Startech regards all wastes, hazardous and non-hazardous, as valuable renewable resources.
