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 gas. 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 U.S. 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. Joseph O’Neil President O’Neil Enviro International 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. PROPRIETARY DATA ACQUISITION AND PROCESS CONTROL SYSTEM - 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 temperature. UNALTERABLE RECORD OF EMISSIONS- The CDROM discussed above 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. TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS – CPMC USA is committed to 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. A.
