    The Micronizer was initially developed for the mineral processing industry and was designed to take any material (including Granite) and pulverize it into a powder. The design is unique and features a patented technology that causes the fractured particles to be continually driven back into themselves. This process is called self-communition and it causes the particles to pulverize each other, which results in smaller particles without excessive wear on the inner surfaces of the machinery.
    The Micronizer operates on the basis of a top feed input, and the material is initially fractured by a series of arms spinning around a central axis. Further stages reduce the material into a range of particle sizes. The exit particle size can be adjusted by changing the dwell time of these stages. The Micronizer has extremely low level maintenance requirements and can pulverize any item commonly found in a landfill. These features make it a perfect technology for preparing the waste for optimal conversion in the Transportable Thermal Conversion Facility.

    I like this, but what if the "trash" that gets micronized is your favorite shoe that your GF tossed when she was angry with you? Isn't a good old landfill a much better fate then?
