Pyrolysis Explained

Pyrolysis uses thermal conversion, typically at 800 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, in the absence of oxygen to transform waste materials into useful fuel, energy and other byproducts.  This high heat is applied from an internal source.  Because a flame does not touch the waste and no air is present in the pyrolysis reactor, the process does not allow the waste to combust.  Since the waste does not combust, the pyrolysis process is environmentally friendly and highly efficient.

The AET process will use animal manure from local feedlots and farms as the raw material.  The manure will be dried, ground and then will be fed into a Pyrolysis reactor.  The reactor will produce 3 outputs:  Pyro Gas in the form of Methane Hydrogen, Pyro Oil and Pyro Char, which is returned to the system and used to heat the reactor and to aid in the drying process.  Electricity to run the plant will be produced by a generator.  The generator will be powered from the energy generated from the plant.  The excess electricity will be re-sold back to a local utility company.
