Idaho National Laboratory (INL)
The INL is home to the research program where the plasma technology at the core of Cogent’s waste-to-energy (WTE) systems was developed. Under the direction of Dr. Peter Kong, one of the world’s foremost plasma experts, more than $5,000,000 has been invested to date in developing more efficient, cost-effective modular plasma gasification systems. Cogent Energy Systems holds the option on an exclusive worldwide license to use this next-generation plasma technology for waste-to-energy purposes.
Cogent Energy Systems has teamed with Creare, Inc. to provide technical, engineering, and manufacturing services relating to the design and construction of our WTE systems . Since 1961, Creare has provided engineering research, development, and consulting services to an international customer base. Creare has a reputation for creating innovative solutions to the most challenging of engineering problems. Creare’s projects include a portable plasma decontamination unit for the United States Air Force, and systems for the Mars Rover, Hubble Space Telescope, and C-17 aircraft.
