General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) industrial Supercritical Water Oxidation (iSCWO) technology is successfully treating a broad range of pumpable hazardous and non-hazardous waste, with a 99.99% destruction removal efficiency. iSCWO provides a safe, cost effective, and environmentally sound solution to replace alternative technologies that have high emission rates, post treatment requirements, and substantial installation and operation costs.
Safe, effective destruction of
- Expired or obsolete pesticides, fertilizers and fungicides
- Contaminated water (waste water clean up)
- Expired or obsolete paints and/or petroleum products
- Petroleum waste streams
- Organic cleaning solutions
- Energetic material (explosives or propellant)
- Unique material not suitable for normal transportation or disposal
For a more complete list of the chemicals successfully treated by the iSCWO process, download the Industrial Supercritical Water Oxidation overview found on this page.

Safely, Efficiently Destroys Hazardous Waste
Fixed and Transportable Solutions
In addition to offering fixed site solutions, GA-EMS provides the only flexible, transportable iSCWO system available today to facilitate "generate and destroy on-site" capabilities. The modular design allows for rapid set-up and start of process operations. A single three gallons per minute (3 GPM) transportable system consists of one compact equipment skid housed inside a single shipping container with liquid containment to create a convenient, cost effective platform for multiple site waste destruction. Parallel, redundant system designs are available for both fixed and transportable systems to increase throughput and improve efficiency.
