The most effective way to render many organic pollutants harmless is to incinerate them. Sakab has two different incineration lines for this purpose, the first being its WTE1 line (WTE = Waste to Energy), with a rotary kiln and high-temperature incineration. This is where the most problematic chemical pollutants are treated in an environmentally correct manner.
The second line, WTE2, is used for dealing with waste that was previously not regarded as hazardous but is now covered by the regulations for disposing of hazardous waste, such as impregnated wood, brominated plastics and operational waste. Heat and electricity are extracted from the waste. The heat is supplied to the district-heating network. The ash is deposited in the hazardous-waste landfill. Both incineration units are connected to the same flue gas cleaning.
The flue gas treatment reduces mercury and dioxin emissions if they would occur and both mercury and dioxins are continously sampled in the flue gases.That is an important measure to control the incinreation processes.
Two evaporators are linked to our incineration plants, enabling us to offer safe and economical treatment of inorganically and organically polluted water.
