PuraEnviro® processes and technologies are continually improved, resulting in greater energy efficiency and reduced environmental footprint of waste.
PuraEnviro® is a leader in developing a reliable and efficient process to thermally convert solid and liquid organic waste materials into synthetic crude oil and environmentally friendly transportation fuels, thereby reducing carbon footprint.
The PuraEnviro® process can reduce our dependence on imported oil, create new clean energy jobs and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Around the world, current technologies for waste disposal are inefficient, causing damage to the environment and generating economic losses. Careless disposal of organic waste considerably increases emissions of toxic and/or harmful gases. As a result of intensive agriculture and industrial production throughout the world, the widespread practice of burying waste to reduce costs and dumping it into the sea and rivers causes environmental disasters.
The thermal and gasification conversion process
Experience proves that, in the absence of oxygen, if the external pressure exerted on each molecule is limited to atmospheric pressure, and the temperature of the waste is maintained between 420ºC and 450ºC, all organic molecules are reduced to atoms and simple synthetic gas that do not condense under ordinary conditions of temperature and pressure.
Thermal conversion occurs in reactors in the absence of air supply, where the simultaneous disintegration of waste takes place. The absence of oxygen creates a strictly reducing medium. The thermally converted molecules are evacuated and free the underlying molecules to allow their conversion; it is therefore a conversion “to the heart”; no residue leaves the process without having been converted.
The final products are renewable synthetic crude oil or fuels, and a mixture of gases whose main components are hydrogen and methane. The inorganic matter remains unchanged by the process and it is very easy to separate it later in any of its forms: metals, glass, earth, etc..
