The plasma resource recovery system is a two-stage plasma gasification and vitrification system used to process municipal solid waste. A transferred arc discharge is used to generate syngas from the waste, and an air plasma torch is used to polish the gasification products. Online syngas monitoring can be employed to compensate for variations in waste feed, thus maintaining both the syngas composition (quality) and production rate.
