univastum waste to energy complex scheme
Waste = Electricity + Heat
The complex processes 2 tons of prepared waste (in practice 3 to 4 tons
of "black-bin" garbage), turning it into 3 MW of electricity to the grid and
8 MW of heat (in the form of hot water, steam or hot air). This is quite enough to provide power and heating for 200-300 households *.

Advantages & Benefits

No external power sources needed
Unlike other technologies for waste processing, the complex does not require external connections and does not consume any other raw materials except waste.



Not an object of capital construction
The UNIVASTUM WARP equipment does not require expensive construction work, mainly limited to site preparation.

Accordingly, this greatly simplifies and reduces the cost of the process of obtaining permits for the placement of the complex.

Works autonomously
The complex does not require external sources of energy and can be placed anywhere on the planet.

A high level of automation requires a minimal number of on-site support personnel.
Works in an extreme conditions
Carefully selected equipment of the complex and features of the WARP technology allow the complex to work non-stop in the widest temperature range from -50 to +50 С. Therefore, we are ready to make our world cleaner anywhere in the world – from tropical jungles and to hot deserts to glaciers.

The complex is designed in such a way that all the main equipment is placed in containers suitable for transportation by conventional transport.
This allows you to move the complex if necessary, based on the specific requirements of the project.

Mobile & Easy to Deploy

Univastum container

The unique WARP® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY and UNIVASTUM's vast experience in working with various types of waste allow our complex to work with any kind of hydrocarbon-containing waste.

Multifuel & Flexible

At the same time, the complex switches from one type of waste to another (for example, from solid household waste to oil sludge or woodworking waste) automatically, without stoppage or technical readjustments.

Ecological Benefits

Zero Waste Principle
Once in the complex, the waste ceases to exist, turning into useful products: electricity, heat, building materials.

Pollution of soil, water and the surrounding territory are absent.


No Dioxins
The WARP® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY is designed in such a way that it does not allow for the formation of dioxins in the process of converting waste into electricity and heat.
In this aspect, we are significantly different from other waste management technologies using direct incineration (e.g. incineration in cement kilns).
Clean Energy Generation
Naturally, in the process of generating electricity, gases are formed that enter the atmosphere. However, it should be noted that the design of the equipment completely eliminates the egress of gasification products into the atmosphere, before their use in gas turbines.
We use GTU OPRA, which are one of the cleanest ways to generate electricity (10-20 times cleaner than a car engine). In addition, the emergence of harmful sulfur oxides and VOCs is completely eliminated in gasification technology.
Sanitary Zone – 500 m
Since the waste processing complex works with waste, we take a responsible approach to the safety of the local population.

To avoid even the slightest threat to human health, we recommend placing the complex no closer than 500 meters to residential buildings and sources of drinking water.


We have a single mission: to find solutions for vulnerable communities and industries who want to be better corporate citizens

Lower CO₂ Emissions

The use of WARP® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY for municipal solid waste allows us to reduce CO₂ emissions due to:
Prevention of greenhouse gas emissions during decomposition of waste at landfills (each ton of waste at the landfill emits about 26.3 kg of methane and 377 kg of carbon dioxide annually).
High efficiency and environmental friendliness of electricity production in a gas turbine in comparison with other technologies for generating electricity.

Marine
WARP ® Complex Marine in fact is not so much a modification as a special solution developed for projects implemented in coastal regions. In this case, the complex is installed on a decommissioned offshore platform (artificial island, pier) equipped with a berth for receiving waste from self-propelled barges - shuttles.
Barges collect waste from coastal sites (hotels, households), moving them to the complex making this an effective solution for the disposal of waste from coastal areas and resorts.

The energy obtained through gasification of waste is converted into the resources necessary for the population and business of the region: electricity, fresh water can be used to supply energy to refrigerated warehouses, data centers, and communication complexes.
All this allows to improve the infrastructure of the coastal region, does not require additional space and solves the problem of waste.

The specifics of the Marine design takes into account the increased requirements for equipment when working at sea (water-salt fog, increased corrosion, humidity). Special attention is paid to waste transshipment processes that exclude their release into coastal waters.

In addition, the UNIVASTUM WARP ® Complex Marine waste-to-energy complex is designed for the disposal of specific waste, such as bilge water from ships, cruise ship waste, etc.

Considering that costs for waste management and electricity are often high in coastal regions and resorts, communities and companies operating in coastal regions and islands get a cost-effective project with a payback period of 4-6 years, which also has high social and environmental significance.
Ocean
Pollution of open waters of oceans and seas is a global problem. Therefore, we at UNIVASTUM have developed a promising solution for placing our power plant on a floating platform.

The minimum size of the complex and technology features allows it to be placed on the deck and in the holds of a special vessel that can clean the surface of the oceans from human waste (primarily plastic).
In this case, the energy obtained from gasification of waste is used for the operation of the vessel (including the operation of electric motors), which significantly reduces the cost of operating the ocean cleaning complex.
Each year, such a ship with only one complex on board can harmlessly clean the ocean from 16,000 tons of waste.

We consider this decision to be very promising and we invite all organizations and individuals who are interested in making our planet cleaner to cooperate.
Country
The Country version is the basic version of the WARP ® Complex which provides maximum simplicity and speed of installation. In this case, all the equipment is placed on an open area and does not require construction of any buildings.
The equipment is delivered in an all-weather design, open placement simplifies maintenance and reduces the cost of generating electricity.

Placing the complex requires a level prepared site with an area of 0.5-1 hectares and up to 1 cubic meter of industrial water for technological needs.

The waste-to-energy WARP ® Complex is ideal for placement in rural areas where there are no significant restrictions on the complex's area.
Urban
UNIVASTUM's Urban version is no different from Country in terms of performance, efficiency and reliability. The only difference is that the WARP ® Complex technological containers are not placed in an open area, but inside a multi-floor modular building, which in its design resembles multi-level car parks.

This design does not provide for complete closed walls, thereby providing reliable ventilation of the space inside the perimeter of the building. At the same time, fire safety requirements are fully complied with without the use of additional technological units.

In terms of service, Urban is no different from Country.
Urban for its accommodation requires 0.15-0.3 hectares, which makes it ideal for placement in urban areas.
