Plasma typically consists of a mixture of ionized species, electrons and neutral particles. The sun is made up of plasma with surface temperature reaching 5,500 degrees Celcius. In nature, we can observe plasma in lightning strikes and with the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Examples of man-made plasma include the light produced by a neon tube, as well as plasma cutting systems used to slice through metal. The thermal plasmas used by PyroGenesis can easily reach temperatures in excess of 5,500 degrees Celsius, comparable to what can be observed at the surface of the sun.
At PyroGenesis, we harness the unique properties of thermal plasma to melt and transform wire into powders, to convert waste into energy, to convert quartz into silicon, and to breakdown waste into its most simple elements.
