The Company Profile

Oxoco is an innovative startup dedicated to the development of oxycombustion technology for waste treatment. Isotherm flameless technology is internationally recognized as one of the most innovative advanced oxidation processes and is the only Italian technology to be included in the Reference Document on Best Available Techniques (BAT – Waste industry), representing the current European benchmark for the thermal treatment of waste.

Objectives

Oxycombustion Flameless is a combustion process without flame, operated under pressure in a very high temperature oxygen atmosphere. With this technology, Oxoco offers an optimal solution to waste, due to its low costs, allowing also the energy recovery and CO2 capture. In addition, this technology transforms waste into vitrified slags which, with the CO2 captured (natural inclination), can be reused, with a substantial environment benefit in terms of reduced pollutant emissions and consequent climate-changing matters.
The technologies currently in use for waste streams generate, instead, waste fractions in significant quantities. The Oxycombustion Flameless technology is able to handle the stream coming from the waste cycle, allowing the definitive end of the cycle without generating other waste, but only immediately reusable material: glassy material and CO2.
The technology allows for the efficient treatment of a wide range of waste of urban and industrial origin, whether non-hazardous or hazardous, even if highly contaminated. The high environmental consideration and the small size of the plant allows the treatment directly on site (the only combustion technology that has this feature). The result is costs reduction but, above all, risks reduction related to the transport of hazardous waste.
