StarTech Environmental Corporation, an award-winning environment and energy company, on an international scale has decided to put waste to use and power a hydrogen engine with it. The StarTech hydrogen engine is not a fuel cell, but rather an internal combustion engine coupled with an electric generator.
While other manufacturers are busy developing products for the automotive market, StarTech is developing its hydrogen products in parallel for the stationary markets of supplying homes and businesses with clean and green energy.
According to StarTech, “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)(TM).”
The StarTech Carbonless Power System and its proprietary membrane-technology are able to separate the hydrogen from the Plasma Converted Gas for use in its hydrogen engine. The hydrogen will burn with air to create zero emissions and the only by-products are water and heat. Hydrogen can be created in-house and on demand from waste for the StarTech engine that will supply power to the home or business.
