ScanArc develops plasma-based thermal processes for extraction of valuable metals and recovery of energy from industrial waste. ScanArc has an engineering department with competence in metallurgy, energy systems, engineering physics and more.

ScanArc has a pilot plant in Hofors, Sweden, with in-house developed processes in pilot scale: a plasma based gasification process (PyroArc) and a slag fuming process (ArcFume). The pilot plant is used to demonstrate the technologies. The pilot reactors have a treatment capacity of 350-500 kg/h and power input of up to 1-2 MW.

ScanArc can build and test processes in scalable size (pilot or demonstration) and has the required infrastructure, media supply, experienced operators and engineers.

Welcome to EURELCO

EURELCO is an open, quadruple helix network that supports the required technological, legal, social, economic, environmental and organisational innovation with respect to the development and implementation of a Dynamic Landfill Management (DLM) framework. The DLM framework includes resource recovery-driven Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) as one of its most advanced components, thereby supporting the transition to a resource efficient, circular, low-carbon economy. Are you a relevant actor working on DLM or ELFM?
