Recovery of energy from waste combustion allows the reduction of the weight and the volume of the waste while reducing green house gases emission.
To meet the strengthening of the regulations, industrial boilers can use the SOLVAir® bicarbonate process; this is a low capital cost, very effective system, particularly adapted to medium-sized plants.
Using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution, cement makers considerably reduce the SOx emissions from clinker ovens respecting the specific limits set by European Directive 2010/75/EU for the incineration and co-incineration of municipal and industrial waste.
In production of tiles, expanded clay and bricks, where large numbers of small units need simple and effective air emission control systems, the SOLVAir® bicarbonate process enables users to respect local regulations and to cut treatment costs.
To face the strengthening of the regulations, pulp & paper mills find an economical answer using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution for mitigation of hazardous acid gas pollutants.
With an increasing number of plants currently in operation, the SOLVAir® bicarbonate Solution is a reference in the following sectors: non-ferrous metals recovery (aluminum, copper, lead), refining and recycling of precious or semi precious metals (vanadium, molybdenum, gold, platinum etc.), roasting of spent petrochemicals catalyst.
Iron and steel works using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution can save money while treating their flue gases coming from the sintering plants, compared to other air emission control systems.
Using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution in several parts of the plants, oil refineries can easily reach a significant mitigation of acid emissions, avoiding large capital spending.
In this sector, numerous installations need simple and effective flue gas treatment systems to meet regulations.
Sodium bicarbonate BICAR® is highly effective in removing sulfur dioxide, the main pollutant in glass furnaces, at any temperature above 140°C.
Where biomass is to be combusted, the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution perfectly meets the emission control requirements with limited investment.
Carbon-based products are high-tech materials used in a fast growing range of applications as electrodes, automotive, nuclear power station components, environmental protection, etc.
Mineral wool producers use SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution to economically mitigate their flue gas emissions.
