Hadron Technologies, Inc. has signed an exclusive license for a Hybrid Microwave and Off-Gas Treatment System developed by the Savannah River National Laboratory, the Department of Energy's applied science laboratory, to manufacture and sell the SRNL-developed system.
This new form of hybrid microwave is capable of achieving extremely high temperatures by enabling materials that usually do not react to microwave energy to absorb it and rapidly heat up. Metals, which normally cannot be introduced into a microwave, not only can be treated, but they are actually used to help increase the temperature of the lower chamber, enabling faster degradation of waste materials.
Equipment using these technologies could be used to destroy a wide variety of substances ranging from medical wastes to harmful viruses and drugs such as methamphetamine, while still allowing for DNA analysis of the destroyed material.
This innovative microwave technology affords significant solutions within the commercial and government markets. "This is another good example of how laboratory innovation has changed our approach to problems," said Dr. Terry Michalske, Director of SRNL. SRNL puts science to work to support DOE and the nation in the areas of environmental stewardship, national security, and clean energy.
