This report assesses a promising new technology which utilizes the well known wet combustion process to treat high strength organic wastes. Because of its unique configuration, the technology labeled the vertical well chemical reactor (VWCR) has the potential to oxidize these wastes more safely and more economically. The report describes how the VWCR works, analyzes its development to date, evaluates the technology it uses and makes preliminary cost and energy estimates. The report compares the VWCR to equivalent technologies and makes an assessment of its potential national impact.
