CPMC-USA Company Profile - DOC by tiny54tim


									CPMC-USA Company Profile

The CPMC-USA incineration process developed by Mr. Glen Edwards (see enclosed
resume) was originally designed specifically for waste disposal applications within the oil
fields of Texas. While incineration was quite obviously the best technology for disposal
of most petroleum based toxic and hazardous wastes, the predominant theory, which is
the basis of most combustion technology used by current industrial incinerators within
the oil and gas industry, was flawed with respect to the handling of both solids and gases.
Current incineration technology was not effectively addressing the Federal EPA goals of
complete elimination of combustible solids and reduction of related emissions of stack

To this end, they developed a unique approach to the incineration process utilizing a
combination of the starved air and enhanced air principles (please see enclosed CPMC-
USA Attributes). In addition, to handling the emission problems caused by fluorides,
chlorides, furans, dioxins, heavy metals, and other particulate and gases more completely,
a unique particulate extraction system was developed to make the process complete. The
theory behind the CPMC process coalesced into the building of an initial prototype
during the summer of 1990. This prototype incineration unit was tested by an EPA
certified laboratory and the results of these tests verified the hypothesis, which led to an
application for both a process and a mechanical patent. This patent, United States patent
number 5,222,446, covered 32 claims for the process and equipment. Subsequent
enhancements to the equipment have led to the preparation for submission of material for
two additional patents, which will further enhance CPMC’s market advantage. A second
patent is currently being prepared and will be filed shortly to take advantage subsequent
R & D advances made by the company. This will further insure the CPMC competitive
advantage in the inevitable changes to both the EPA and the E.U. emissions guidelines.

 The uniqueness of this incineration technology is matched by the actual units
themselves. Although each incinerator is custom built, CPMC’s technology allows for
each unit to be adapted to different waste streams, from municipal, and medical, to
contaminated soil and liquid waste. Adjustments must be made for these changes in the
software, burner temperature and grinders and various pumps etc., these units are
extremely adaptable. And all with emissions well below the allowable limits.

Another important feature is that of the smaller units which can be configured to be
mobile. These units fit on 3-4 trailers and be taken to specific sites to be worked and then
sent on to the next job to be processed. These smaller units can process from 6 to 60 U.S.
tons per day. Below is a Model 5 (24 tons per day) processing contaminated soil in the

In summary, CPMC-USA’s technology is unsurpassed in it’s ability to handle multi
waste streams, in either a stationary or mobile configuration, in a cost effect manner – all
without pollution to the environment.

As the International Sales Distributor for all of CPMC-USA’s technology, I welcome all
enquiries you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact myself, or our European
Representative, Vasilios Tsioumanis, in Greece.

Thank you for your interest.

    CPMC USA Incineration Technology Overview

   LOW EMISSIONS - Emissions from the CPMC USA’s incinerator system are well
    below the allowable limits of the EPA and The European Union (Directive
    2000/76/EC of The European Parliament and of The Council). The systems low
    emission rates are due to two things: (1) the patented process and (2) the proprietary
    data acquisition and process control system. Both these features are discussed below.
    What most incineration technology normal does is apply massive amounts of heat to
    the product being incinerated. This process produces large quantities of gases, which
    them must be handled by the use of scrubbers and filters. Our patented process
    (discussed below) involves the use of a low temperature, starved air burn in the first
    chamber, a cooling of the gases in our PECS unit, followed by a high temperature,
    excess air burn in the secondary chamber. Our technology makes of the use of filters
    and scrubbers unnecessary. No other incineration technology can make that claim.

   CPMC’s PROCESS - The process is designed to minimize the emissions.
    Temperature in the primary burn chamber is carefully controlled to burn the waste
    with minimal production of NOx; furans, dioxins, and their precursors. CPMC's
    unique primary burn chamber also helps prevent passage of particulate into the rest of
    the system. Particulate, furans, dioxins, heavy metals, acids, chlorides and fluorides
    leaving the primary burn chamber are removed from the exhaust gases in the
    particulate extraction and containment system (PECS). The cleansed gases are mixed
    with air and pass into the secondary burn chamber where they are re-burned at high
    temperature for a minimum of two seconds, with excess air.

    - CPMC's Data Acquisition and Process Control System is PC based
    software/hardware that continuously monitors 8 critical emission parameters. It
    records the emission data on a CD Rom, which provides a permanent record of
    emission data, and automatically adjusts the process controllers to optimize
    emissions. This also provides the ability to use the Internet to either trouble shoot or
    inspect particular readings via a phone line. Failure of any of the component
    equipment causes the control system to immediately shut down the system.

   PROPRIETARY SENSOR PACKAGE - CPMC's proprietary sensor package
    monitors eight emission parameters: opacity, NOx, SO2, CO, O2, Cl2, HCl, and

    provides an unalterable record of all emission data. This also provides a quick and
    simple backup by Houston based technical assistance. Once you purchase our
    equipment, you’re never alone, CPMC USA will be there to help handle any problem
    that may arise.

   MINIMUM RESIDUE AFTER BURNING - The thorough combustion of the
    waste is evident by the minimum residue remaining after a burn. Residue remaining
    after one medical waste test was less than 3% of the original weight. By volume, the
    ash was less than 1%, plus, any metals and glass, which do not melt in the controlled
    low temperature of the primary burn chamber. Remaining ash is normally very fine
    powder, similar in consistency to face powder.

    SIMPLE CONSTRUCTION - Simple construction of the system makes the units
    cost effective. Key items in the system are modular for ease of maintenance and
    repairs. Long life of each system is important attribute that is achieved by using only
    the highest quality of components. Both the primary and secondary chambers are
    constructed with Inconel™. Inconel is a specialty "super" alloy comprised of high
    percentages of nickel and chrome. Inconel alloys possess several properties making
    them well suited for service in extreme environments. Inconel is very resistant to
    oxidation and corrosion and Inconel retains strength over a wide range of
    temperatures. This makes it particularly attractive in high temperature applications
    where other steel alloys would "soften.” These attributes of Inconel are essential for
    ensuring reliable long-term benefits of our systems over the years.

   SAFETY EQUIPMENT STANDARD - Each burner of the system is controlled by
    an ultra-violet scanner that assures the pilot is functioning properly before fuel is
    supplied to the burner.

   DOUBLE WALLED STACK- The double walled stack provides many benefits. It
    helps reduce emissions even more by cooling the exhaust gases so that most
    remaining particulate falls back into the secondary burn chamber. It also provides an
    excellent means of producing steam for co-generation, heating, and autoclaving
    instruments. In addition, the cooler temperature of the stack materials helps increase
    the life of the stack.

    continued research and development of the process and equipment. Purchasers of
    systems will be kept informed of the results of these technological advancements and
    offered the opportunity to upgrade their systems.
