PyroGenesis Canada Inc., a company that designs and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems, received an order from a North American auto-parts manufacturer for a DROSRITE furnace system. The DROSRITE system is a salt-free, cost-effective, sustainable process for maximizing metal recovery from dross, a waste generated in the metallurgical industry.

PyroGenesis’ patented process avoids costly loss of metal while reducing a smelter’s carbon footprint and energy consumption. Delivery of the system is scheduled for the second quarter of 2018.
