Our Products and services

A clean solution for medical waste disposal.

Aplas provides healthcare facilities (hospitals, medical waste disposal centres) and other medical waste producers with environmentally friendly waste treatment, while achieving the energy and resource recovery for their needs. A pilot-scale facility (with capacity of 3 tons of MW per day) is already running by China Tianying Inc. in Nantong, China. Meanwhile, a larger capacity commercial demonstration plant in Tongzhouwan, Nantong, China is in design and will be commissioned in Q4 2017.

A compact and easy-to-transfer system for the treatment of solid waste.

Aplas provides small communities, industry and other sectors a cost-effective, environmentally friendly solution to dispose of small quantities of solid waste. It is a compact and light-weight, portable plasma-gasification unit. The disposal unit is light-weight and easy to move to the users to treat the waste locally after a quick assembly, avoiding the transportation of the collected waste to alternative treatment. It is an easy-to-operate, highly reliable and robust system in which the integrated advanced plasma units eliminate the pollutants effectively, ensuring an extremely low emission while maintaining a low maintenance cost.

A plasma-based metallic powder production system.

Aplas is dedicated to developing plasma-based metallic powder technologies. Aplas provides solutions for producing and supplying high-quality and spherical Titanium and Titanium alloy powders for additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy as well as other 3D printing related industries. Plasma technologies are integrated in the process for producing highly spherical and high-density particles, which are highly desirable for additive manufacturing. Figure 1 shows an overview of the metal powder process.

A plasma melting system for treatment of fly ash

Through innovation, collaboration and partnerships, Aplas has developed a novel plasma-based melting technology that provides a solution for treating highly-concentrated solid pollutants, such as fly ash. Figure 1 displays the plasma ash melting process.

Our Facilities

Chinese Facilities

China TIANYING’s Plasma Application Laboratory (PAL) is a collaborative research lab for APLAS developed plasma technology demonstration and application. The Laboratory advances the coupled fields of waste treatment, advanced material, new energy and plasma physics research, and, with APLAS, is developing the scientific understanding and key innovations needed to realize enterprise strategy and social responsibilities.

Canadian Facilities

Aplas offices are in Ottawa, a hot-bed of research and development with 1800 high-tech companies and two comprehensive universities.

Aplas is establishing a Plasma Technology Research Facility in Ottawa, Ontario. The purpose of the facility is to enable Aplas’ vision of being a world leader in market-driven innovation and engineering design for industrial applications of plasma.

The 10,000 ft2 research space will house equipment and supporting analytical laboratories for research into plasma torch development and refinement, powder manufacturing for 3D printing and novel applications of plasma that can be introduced into the market.

A 3000ft2 interim research space will be commissioned in 2017 to start practical research and development while the permanent facility is built and fitted-out.


Aplas is the wholly-owned subsidiary of China TIANYING, an environmental
protection & new energy enterprise.

TIANYING’s Advantage:

Guaranteed continuous cash flow

Low cost manufacturing

Large potential market in China and worldwide through
Urbaser SA

GExperienced Chinese engineering support
and assistance

TIANYING’s mission is to meet the needs of society and make great contributions to the improvement of the environment through remarkable technology, high-quality products, a full range of service and continual innovations. TIANYING will do this by adhering to the spirit of enterprise and social responsibility with values of “high quality, fast rhythm, advanced technology, outstanding service”.

TIANYING designed, delivered and operates six MSW thermal treatment plants in China and has another six in construction or design. While doing so, TIANYING demonstrated its innovative drive by obtaining 14 patents of invention and 239 patents for utility models. In addition, TIANYING manufactures and sells environmental protection equipment to the Chinese market.

In 2016, TIANYING collaborated with China Energy Conversation and Environmental Protection Group and others to purchase the Spanish waste management company Urbaser S.A. for $1.3 billion. In doing so, TIANYING is starting a new era as an international enterprise in the fields of environmental protection and new-energy generation.

Also in 2016, TIANYING established Aplas to develop new technology and engineering designs of plasma applications to support TIANYING’s growth in the fields of solid waste treatment, waste-water treatment, energy generation and the manufacture and supply of related equipment and facilities. TIANYING is looking to Aplas to become a world-class centre of innovation in plasma-related technologies.
