The Pharmaceutical industry uses different processes to create chlorinated hydrocarbons. In a regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) the chlorinated organic contaminants are destroyed at high temperature. Chlorinated hydrocarbons - among others - are converted into hydrogen chloride which produces a hydrochloric acid solution after quick cooling in the quencher. The hydrochloric acid solution is removed through a downstream alkali scrubber. CTP's special design of the RTO's purified gas exchanger impedes the formation of dioxins and furanes.
Summary: The hazardous chlorinated hydrocarbons are completely destroyed without residue. There is no generation of hazardous by-products, e.g. dioxins.
