  • Chemical Industry: Sale of by-Product HCl Covers Cost of Emission Control System Problem Case Study

    Some of the specialty chemical processes at a major chemical manufacturer’s plant result in considerable HCl loading in the off-gas. The HCl must be removed before the off-gas can be discharged to the atmosphere. Production of saleable by-product HCl solution was an important goal when looking for a high-efficiency HCl removal system. The company wanted to achieve a very low level of ...
