GreenMine’s WCPs can process existing legacy landfill waste as well as new waste producing marketable offtakes as follows:

Mineral Recyclables



Pyroligneous extract (which can be separated into tar, lignin, acidic water and bio-oils)

Thermo-Recyclables generation from bio-coal connected to the grid for distribution to communities

Carbon Credits

The technology addresses serious environmental, social and urban issues caused by toxic landfill sites and the ongoing legacy of high maintenance capped landfill sites emitting noxious gasses into the atmosphere contributing to health issues in surrounding urban areas.
Legacy landfill sites are becoming increasingly more difficult to manage and space is not readily available for future landfill sites. These sites could be better utilised for the benefit of local communities, creating a safer and healthier environment by putting the land to better use. The technology addresses the increasing need for efficient and safe disposal while transforming waste into recyclable commodities and optional clean energy.
In addition to the many benefits our technology provides in the conversion of waste, we believe our WCPs are a gamechanger as they have the potential to make landfills a thing of the past and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.


The GreenMine waste carbonization technology goes beyond the usual benefits of a waste recycling process.
Our process uses innovative technology to mitigate pollutant emissions and solid residues during processing, and in their onward deployment and operation.
The equipment can be built within six months, ready for shipping, and a typical five tone per hour plant occupies a footprint of less than 1,000 sqm.

The technology uses a system that ensures the plant is 100% self-sustainable.

It utilizes only 10% of its own produced bio-coal to heat the Pyrolysis oven. No outsourced fuel or gas are required (except for the initial ignition). Limited electricity is required to run the 40hp electric motors on start-up.

The plant is modular in design and can be scaled up from 500kg per hour to 20 tone per hour.

All gases from the enclosed waste carbonization process are retrieved and recuperated by a highly efficient distilling structure (using the proprietary technology of our partners).

Innovative Technology

Our process uses innovative technology in that it prevents pollutant emissions and solid residues during processing, and in their deployment and operation.

Short Time Frame

The equipment can be built within a short time frame and installed in relatively small spaces.


Our technology runs a system that renders the plant 100% self-sustainable: it utilizes only 10% of its own produced bio-coal to heat the carbonization oven.

With the waste carbonization process almost complete, much of the solid waste is now transformed into charcoal (char ashes) and other solid products.
These solid products come out of the oven separated, clean and ready for the recycling industry.
They are then sorted through a rotation metal tube according to the different types of materials contained in the GreenMine waste: aluminum, glass, iron, copper, bronze, sand and rocks.
Only 10% of the bio-coal produced from the processing will return to the oven’s furnace, which operates continuously. This means that the plant is self-sustaining producing its own bio-fuel.
The remaining 90% of the bio-coal produced can have several destinations; the majority are clean recyclables and power generation.
The bio-liquid, named pyroligneous extract, resulting from gases, is also separated and sold to many industries (construction, cosmetic and oil).

General Process

The municipal solid waste industry has had for many years four components: recycling, composting, disposal, and waste-to-energy via incineration.


The conversion of an organic substance into carbon or a carbon-containing residue through destructive distillation.


We use extreme pyrolysis called carbonization which in its turn is a thermochemical decomposition of organic material at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen (or any halogen).

The Difference

The municipal solid waste processing through pyrolysise (as opposed to incineration) is one of the safest and newest alternatives methods in the world to waste management.
