EUROPLASMA, member of UrbAquitaine, won two technological successes this summer, delivered a vitrification unit in China, then delivered a plasma furnace in Bulgaria

2 technological successes for Europlasma this Summer :

Firstly, with the delivery of the fly ash vitrification unit of Houjie incinerator (China) in July. This high temperature process, under Europlasma control for several years, will allow to melt and to make inert 35t/day of toxic ashes from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) incineration.

Secondly, with the plasma furnace dedicated to the treatment of low-level radioactive waste (LLW), into the Kozloduy nuclear power plant in Bulgaria in August. This process drastically reduces the volume of waste, up to 80 times in certain cases, and definitely eliminates the risk of leaching once the treated material is stored.
