Development of twin-electrode electric arc furnace for resource recovery

Our ever-increasing needs for material and energy to sustain our modern lifestyle put an increasingly difficult-to-bear stresses on the extraction, harvesting, transformation and utilization of natural resources and their disposal (or waste), which ultimately lead to environmental, economical, political and societal consequences. Researchers from PyroGenesis Canada Inc. and the Plasma Processing Laboratory of McGill University have recognized the potential of the electric arc furnace technology to provide solutions to these major issues while providing opportunities for economic growth and creating more high-tech job opportunities to Canadians.
