Terragon's Compact Micro Auto Gasification System

Updated : 30-Aug-20

Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS)

Terragon’s Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS) is a compact and environmentally safe technology for the conversion of a variety of combustible materials into thermal energy for use by the site where these materials are generated. MAGS can be used to eliminate all combustible by-products produced by a ship, community or institution, while sterilizing the inorganic portion of the waste. Waste streams that can be easily treated by MAGS without the need for segregation.

Sustainability Benefits

  • Syngas becomes the main fuel, thus minimizing the need for external fuel sources and rendering the appliance virtually self-sustainable.
  • The hot exhaust gases are quenched with with water, eliminating the potential for the formation of dioxins and furans and then cleaned to remove particulates and acid gases prior to discharge.

USP

  • MAGS is used to generate over 2,400 kWh of energy daily by processing up to 1 tonne per day of combustible materials.
  • Fully automated and available for remote monitoring and no waste pre-treatment is required before loading it in the container.
  • MAGS is USDA approved by APHIS as a technology for handling Regulated Garbage.

End user sector

  • Hospitals and Clinics
  • Medical Research & Laboratories
  • Nursing Services
  • Medical Facilities and Clinical Labs

How does this work?

  • MAGS uses Terragon’s patented technology, the Auto Gasification Process, to thermally break down hydrocarbons in waste and transform them into a small volume (5%) of harmless residue (bio-char) and energy.
  • The treatment reactor is about the same size as a 55 gallon drum.
  • Within the drum, the waste is heated and breaks down to carbonaceous char (bio-char) and a gas consisting mostly of hydrogen and carbon monoxide (syngas).
  • This syngas is used as the fuel for the process in MAGS.

About the Company

Terragon Environmental Technologies focuses on delivering sustainability with simple applications to treat waste locally. It was created to develop simple appliances that enable any habitat to treat its own waste locally with no environmental damage and with significant benefits from the recovery of resources contained within the waste.
