Hawaii-Based Marines Test Green Waste Disposal Technology at PTA on Mauna Kea » Marines PTA

Pvt. Dylan Bolt, a mortarman with 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, operates the tablet-like interface on the MAGS (Micro Auto Gasification System) here Jan 25, as part of Exercise Lava Viper. MAGS is being tested by the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific Experimentation Center to determine whether it is a viable waste management solution for Marines operating out of austere environments. The machine is capable of handling the daily waste disposal needs of approximately 1,000 troops, converting 95 percent of the waste to gas, which is then used to fuel the process.
