Oxalor - A technology for a 100% natural treatment of household and assimilated waste

« A world without waste »

The OXALOR® technology

Principle : a fully controlled natural and fast exothermic reaction.

The OXALOR® technology is an innovative and industrialized process for the treatment and valorization of raw household and assimilated waste. The technology consists of an attack of the organic fractions by a reagent called « CALOX® » based on calcium oxide (CaO) : a well-known chemical principle optimized and redefined by the OXALOR® Group into a high-tech solution.  

A 100% physico-chemical natural reaction allowing waste stabilization and sanitization. 

The incoming waste and materials undergo a fast (less than 3 hours) and natural exothermic reaction (approx. 90°C).  As a consequence, the treated outgoing waste is sanitized and dehydrated thus creating no odours nor lixiviats.  

Separation and valorization.

Four distinct fractions constitute the products issued from the treatment :

  • A dehydrated and sanitized degraded organic fraction allowing its agronomical valorization
  • A sanitized non-organic fraction (PET, ferrous and non-ferrous materials) allowing a valorization through the recycling industry.
  •  An RDF fraction (refuse-derived fuel) allowing "waste-to-energy" valorization
  • An inert fraction (which is neither chemically or biologically reactive and will not decompose) is destined to be landfilled.  This only concerns a small part of the treated waste ( 5 to 10 %).
