Our company is also nearing the completion of an exciting project that will see us produce a carbonized residue by-product from the variable forms of hazardous waste that is processed at A-Thermal.  The carbonized residue has similar properties to coal and can be used as an alternative form of fuel, essentially making A-Thermal a Zero-Landfill Treatment Facility.
A-Thermal is focussed on the safe disposal of hazardous and toxic wastes, and also incorporates recycling wherever possible.  In terms of the Waste Management Hierarchy, these are activities required when it is difficult to minimise or re-use waste.
