  • The Influence of PVC on the Quantity and Hazardousness of Flue Gas Cleaning Residues from Incineration

    The study estimates the influence of PVC on the quantity and hazardousness of flue gas residues from incineration. The analysis has been carried out on both theoretical and practical terms. A distinction between dry, semi-dry and wet gas treatment systems has been made. The influence of PVC has been assessed on the combustion steps and therefore on the distribution of chlorine and other ...

  • Dry regenerable sorbents for the separation and capture of CO2 from large point sources

    The combustion of fossil fuels generates large quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas most likely to influence global warming and climate change. Large stationary sources that include coal-based electric generating stations are plausible targets for the removal of CO2. Chemical absorption of CO2 is viewed as one option that could be applicable ...

  • Global solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • Precipitator Solves Dryer Problem

    Plum Creek Manufacturing, Columbia Falls, Montana, installed a PPC Industries electrostatic precipitator to solve a direct fired dryer dust plugging problem. The electrostatic precipitator was installed in a very congested area and the project had to be done so the dryer was off-line a minimal amount of time. Plum Creek personnel relocated existing equipment, poured concrete footings, ran all of ...

  • The impact of advanced digestion on incineration of sewage sludge

    Abstract Traditionally, when incineratin sewage sludge, it was preferable to burn raw undlgested sludge, as digestion - by extracting some of the energy from sludge- subsequently reduce its calorific value. However, when considering incineration as part of a wider strategy, the desicion whether or not to include digestion becomes less clear. Since, virtually all of the requirements of ...
