Product Reincarnation Technology (PRT) is still the leading technology in the field of waste-to-energy, with a performance that exceeds nighty-eight percent of economic efficiency. Nevertheless, engineers are constantly improving and upgrading parts and processes to meet – and exceed – the requirements of the demanding market.
“We have just completed the long-endurance test of the latest technology upgrade, and we are delighted,” said Roberto Hroval, founder of Project Phoenix8, which exclusively uses PRT technology in its process. “Our tech’s two main products are green electricity and carbon black. The upgraded technology produces even smaller granulated particles of carbon black than the previous version.”
The PRC process consists of two major sections. The first is the decomposition of hydrocarbons, and the second is the integration of these elements, or basic building blocks, into a new product. The most common application is the breakdown of used car tires (the first part of the process), using these raw materials to produce new tires (the second part of the process).
Hroval said that the success of any technology is based on integration into existing market processes. “The task of new technology is to enable the fulfillment of desires that are already present on the market. Even the most remarkable technologies don’t force people to change.
It is quite the contrary. For example, smartphones didn’t try to impose something on people when they were introduced. They fulfilled the wish for more accessible, smoother, and intuitive operations while having more fun. When you research great inventions, you will always come to this conclusion. Our technology follows these guidelines as well.”
For this reason, the standards applied in the automotive industry are essential, as they dictate the demand and price of raw materials. “More compact granulation and exceeding the standards of the automotive industry allow us to ensure that our products will always be in high demand. As a result, we will be able to get a good price for them,” he added, “and the automotive industry will always be able to rely on our products. Assurance and reliance are of utmost importance in today’s unstable times.”
Long endurance test shows thirty percent higher technology utilization
The founder explained that the equipment’s expected utilization was always carefully predicted. He likes a conservative approach so that the numbers are realistic. “With the last endurance test, we found the optimal relationship between excellent performance and servicing,” revealed Roberto Hroval.
Considering the latest upgrades, the technology can operate an enviable 8,000 hours a year, which is thirty percent more than planned. Hroval: “Thirty percent longer operation time means the same percentage of more products. Which also means around thirty percent bigger revenue.”
Another advantage that the technology upgrade ensured – and an additional revenue booster – is the drastic reduction in the need for a workforce. The factory can operate with only ten employees instead of thirty as planned. According to the founder, in some cases, two employees can run an entire process.
The new certification uplifts PRT and Project Phoenix8 to a whole new level
For the technology to comply with the EU directive and exceed required norms, the company decided to meet exceptional standards known as the ATEX directive.
ATEX is not a required operational standard, but some great companies still decide to achieve it. It is based on preventive safety measures. With it, the company reaches the highest European and US level of safety for the environment, employees, equipment, and fire safety.
It also determines the standard of maintenance and complete regulation in the event of system outages, machine shutdowns, machine restarts, particle controls, and the like.
The founder explained: “Certification includes rules of procedure and protocols. It prescribes handling, protecting, and preventing potential accidents, ensuring the highest level of industrial equipment maintenance. We are proud to put the concern for the safety of people, the environment, and equipment at the forefront. This is our priority and responsibility.”
In this way, the entire multi-billion project Themis Ecosystem, of which Project Phoenix8 is a crucial part, will gain an even more significant competitive advantage in the market.
