In the GlidArc system a discharge from a 10,000 Volt power supply glides continuously along diverging electrodes until this Electric Discharge blows off and repeats itself in the gas flow at the apex of the curved electrodes, similar to a Jacob's Ladder.

Note: On April 7, 2010, we removed much of the information that was posted here from http://www.vortexcw.nl inasmuch as Conrad L H Winkelman is no longer involved with Czernichowski & his company ECP due to what he alleges to be fraudulent actions of Czernichowski & his company ECP.


Albin Czernichowski, inventor, and Professor of Physics and Chemistry at the University of Orleans, France, invented systems in which a discharge from a 10,000 Volt power supply would glide continuously along diverging electrodes until this Electric Discharge blew off and repeated itself in the gas flow at the apex of the curved electrodes, in the same way as in a Jacob's Ladder.

The gliding arc of electricity creates a plasma inside the reactor. The plasma then creates a cauldron where low temperature chemical reactions can occur that change waste materials such as used cooking oil or agricultural biomass into clean fuels. This technology enables construction of a compact, relatively inexpensive, low tech plasma gasifier that can take all sorts of waste materials and turn them into a variety of different drop-in fuels, including diesel, gasoline and kerosene. [1]

The GlidArc plasma technology is being marketed in Europe for waste gas and biomass gas recycling, clean fuels production and chemicals manufacturing.

Bioleux Polska of Poland

"Bioleux Polska of Poland has been a partner of ECP since July 2010 and undertook significant marketing and technical effort to sell ECP technology in Poland and, at ECP option, several countries around the world. Bioleux has purchased ECP equipment and on its own built a 100 kWe containerized biomass power plant. Currently, Bioleux is offering complete biomass/waste power plants in the 50-2000 kWe range. They are located near Wroclaw Airport and can be found at http://www.bioleux.com and http://www.bioleux.eu" (January 18, 2013)

Partner: Florida Syngas

(now defunct)

Former Partner: Vortex Engineering

  • http://www.glidarc.com (under construction) - "Vortex Engineering signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Synergy Technologies Corporation(Conroe Texas) in 2000 for entering into an GlidArc Technology Agency for The Netherlands. In 2003 Synergy Technologies Corporation went banktrupt. Vortex Engineering now acts on its own as GlidArc Technology Consultant. We offer no GlidArc equipment at this time."

Product Information

Quoting from http://www.floridasyngas.com/product_info.asp

An integral part of GlidArc® Technology is its trade secret, self-renewing/self-regenerating catalyst, which allows the GlidArc® Plasma Reactor to operate continuously, with very low maintenance. Over 20 years of research has been devoted to the development of GlidArc®, supported by more than 30 patents, which provide the intellectual and proprietary basis for GlidArc® and its almost unlimited applications in the field of Renewable Energy. GlidArc® offers an unparalleled way and means to achieve “Energy Victory”*1 and reduce dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

Feedstocks for GlidArc® Plasma Reformer are available everywhere, from grass clippings to old bedding, from waste ship bilge sludge to unburned coal-ash, from raw sewage to wood chips…any carbonaceous waste is ideal. GlidArc uses these waste products to make ultra-clean synthesis gas (Syngas) through electrical discharge plasma.

  • Patented, unique and proprietary process
  • Highly energy efficient
  • Requires only small amounts of electricity to make Syngas
  • “Energy Positive”

Unlike energy-negative plasma torches, which literally vaporize all material (including dangerous metals, glass and minerals) and requires immense energy input, GlidArc® needs only mlliamps to break apart the carbon/hydrogen/oxygen molecular bonds, passing them across a self-renewing, self-regenerating catalyst bed instantaneously forming Syngas. Once Syngas is formed, many things can be done.

Electricity can be produced using the clean, hydrogen rich gas as fuel for gas generators. Methanol can be produced using commercially ready Fischer-Tropsch Systems, as can other highly valuable chemical compounds. The ability to make Urea (fertilizer) in a carbon-neutral manner is now achievable, reducing nitrogen and carbon dioxides, vastly reducing fertilizer runoff and water pollution.

Syngas can also be used to manufacture ultra-clean synthetic gasoline, diesel and jet fuels too; without sulfur, and in a carbon-neutral process.

    Low Tech, DIY Plasma Gasifier Makes Fuel From Waste - Some interesting tidbits are coming out of the American Chemical Society conference in San Francisco this week. ...Now comes word from a scientist at the University of Orleans in France that he has constructed a compact, relatively inexpensive, low tech plasma gasifier that can take all sorts of waste materials and turn them into a variety of different drop-in fuels, including diesel, gasoline and kerosene.

    Plasma technology offers clean fuel breakthrough - According to Prof. Albin Czernichowski from France’s University of Orleans, a device called a GlidArc reactor has successfully been used to create clean fuels from waste materials, utilizing electrically-charged clouds of gas called “plasmas.” One of the fuels is a form of diesel that reportedly releases ten times less air pollution than conventional diesel.
