Resource Converting, LLC (RCI) is a privately owned entity based in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The current ownership acquired the original patents in 2013 from the inventor of the technology. The technology was originally designed to dry animal manure, however, it was quickly discovered that with additional modifications, it could dry multiple other feedstocks. These modifications and additional intellectual property helped evolve the technology into the Dryclone® Air Drying System.
Through research and testing, RCI realized that they not only had a system for use in the agricultural processing industry, but a breakthrough in drying technology that could dry, homogenize, blend, and pulverize hundreds of tons per day. RCI has spent the last three years engineering the system for commercial applications and has just recently taken the Dryclone to market. There is currently no drying system on the market that matches the combination of throughput, simplicity, reliability, and cost per ton of the Dryclone Air Drying System.
The Dryclone Air Drying System is capable of efficiently drying many different materials including municipal solid waste, wastewater treatment sludge, paper sludge, and many other types of agricultural waste. RCI currently markets the Dryclone systems through authorized distributors all over the world.
Due to the exclusive capabilities of the technology, RCI has chosen to license the technology so they can protect the licensees from unauthorized usage and competition. Through licensing, RCI has sold multiple non-exclusive, as well as exclusive licenses in multiple different feedstocks and in multiple territories worldwide.
The Dryclone technology is unlocking the potential of various materials as sources of energy by reducing disposal costs and providing options for revenue and savings. RCI currently has a 20,000 square foot facility in Las Vegas with a demonstration system that can demonstrate the capabilities of the Dryclone system.
