WILTON, Conn., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Startech Environmental Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: STHK), a fully reporting, Award-winning Environment and Energy Company, announced today that the EnviroSafe Industrial Services Corporation of San Juan, Puerto Rico has expanded its original plans for its new recycling-facility and its location to now include its intention to install three Plasma Converters Systems, purchased last year from the Company, in an existing, former pharmaceutical-industry-facility also located in Puerto Rico.
Steve Landa, Startech VP, said, "The Converters being manufactured now will be used by EnviroSafe to process various wastes including pharmaceutical-industry waste with the resulting Plasma Converted Gas used to make various Alternative Fuels. It is important to note here that in this first-of-its-kind facility, the Alternative Fuels will be produced from waste as the feedstock and not from food-crops."
About Startech -- the Environment and Energy Company
Startech is the internationally recognized, Award-winning Environment and Energy Industry Company producing and selling of its innovative, proprietary plasma processing equipment known as the Plasma Converter System(TM).
The Plasma Converter System safely and economically destroys wastes, no matter how hazardous or lethal, and turns most into useful and valuable products.

The System achieves closed-loop elemental recycling to safely and irreversibly destroy urban waste, organics and inorganics, solids, liquids and gases, hazardous and non-hazardous waste, industrial by-products and also items such as electronics-waste (e-waste), medical waste, chemical industry waste and other specialty wastes, while converting many of them into useful commodity products that can include silicates, metals and a synthesis-gas called Plasma Converted Gas (PCG) (TM).
Among the many commercial uses for PCG, is its use to produce "Carbonless Electric Power" from Startech Hydrogen, Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) fuels such as ethanol, synthetic diesel fuel and other higher alcohol "alternative" fuels. Startech Hydrogen, for commercial use and sale, can also be recovered from the PCG.
The Startech Plasma Converter is essentially a manufacturing system to process wastes, as feedstocks, and to produce valuable commodity products from those feedstock-materials that were previously regarded as wastes.
