  • 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 ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • New laser-based dust emission monitoring system

    Abstract A new generation of continuous particulate matter concentration monitoring instruments is presented, covering a measuring range of 0 to 1000 mg/m3. The laser-based scattered light instrument gives an improved stability as well as excellent resolution in the low range. This enables high concentration measurement as well as especially low emission monitoring down to 0.01 mg/m3 with a ...

  • Overview of mercury control in coal-fired power plants

    During combustion, the mercury (Hg) in coal is volatilized and converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) vapor in the high temperature regions of coal-fired boilers. As the flue gas is cooled, a series of complex reactions begin to convert Hg0 to ionic mercury (Hg2+) compounds and/or Hg compounds (Hgp) that are in a solid-phase at flue gas cleaning temperatures or Hg that is adsorbed onto the surface ...

  • Case study - WESPs: Securing a cleaner future for power-generating facilities

    This article explains why wet electrostatic precipitators remain a viable technology for dealing with today's increasingly stringent compliance issues. Despite recent, recession-related volatility in both power generation and consumption, industry analysts expect a resumption of long-term growth trends as continued global demand for energy — in both developed and developing nations ...

  • `Evaluation of Strategies for Mercury MACT Compliance,` presented at the Coal-Gen 2004 conference

    Introduction On December 15,2003, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) proposed a rule with two alternatives to permanently reduce mercury (Hg) emissions from power plants. Under one alternative, which is the focus of this paper, the utilities would install controls known as Maximum Achievable Control Technologies (MACT) under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). ...
