I look forward to expanding adoption and use of MAGS within the US Government and Defense sector, as well as moving forward with the commercialization of this technology across several other markets. The recent field testing and rapid proto-typing that the MAGS appliance was put through, in late last 2012 and this past Spring with the Marine Corps, has allowed us to quickly develop a crucial piece of equipment for both expeditionary requirements and the commercial settings.

MAGS™, developed by Terragon Environmental Technologies, Inc of Montreal, QC Canada is an appliance designed to breakdown waste at the point of origin in an environmentally sound manner, without the toxic emissions, while harvesting the waste energy and eliminating the transportation burden. A single MAGS destroys up to 100 pounds per hour of as-received waste and reduces the waste volume by more than 95%, exporting more than twice the energy it consumes in the form of hot water and air.

Originally intended as a commercial appliance to service displaced habitats, ships, resorts, hotels, and hospitals, MAGS™ has great application for military shore installations and Naval vessels. Additionally, MAGS™ is well suited for expeditionary use and will reduce the risks, emissions, and costs associated with deployed waste disposal. In one day, a single MAGS™ unit will treat the waste typically generated by up to 1000 personnel or more with multiple MAGS™ units, and the exported energy will reduce the bases overall energy demand. MAGS™ is a compact system that offers exceptional energy efficiency, good economics, clean emissions and requires only one operator.

Currently being used by the Marines with funding and support from the Office of Naval Research, this waste appliance is the answer to the challenges facing our military when it comes to clean and effective waste disposal, locally.
