Catalytic filtration technologies and their application in the process industry

P. Aresta*, FLSmidth Airtech A/S, Denmark

Air pollution control has become a more and more key parameter for many industries. Scientific progress, made available new technologies, and public awareness of risks for health and environment due to plant emissions have increased too. These two pillards have been the driving forces of this growth attention on emission control.

Local regulations are therefore reviewed in line with these developments. When one or more pollutants become efficiently removable, regulators take it into account and the emission requirements not only sets lower limits for usual pollutants, such as particulate matters, but introduces limits for new compounds.

Catalytic filtration technologies are studied to allow multipollution control, removing not only particulate matter, but also gaseous compounds including nitrogen oxide, ammonia, dioxins/furans and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This limits the introduction of new process units and avoids complications of the plant layout.

More in detail, two complementary products have been developed:

Over the last year this technology has been introduced with success in industrial plants: the aim of this work is to show some info about the performances, the advantages and the possibilities connected to its implementation...
