Near Critical Water Oxidation
(TEES, for thermochemical environment and energy system) converts organics to methane and CO2 with high pressure, high temperature water--both energy production and cleanup! Applicable to aqueous waste streams with organics; e.g., food processors could lower costs and even do some cogeneration. Sludges and slurries OK. There's a small licensee in Southern California.
