Waste Gases Treatment Processes in which the gas emissions from waste disposal are converted into harmless substances by means of chemical reactions.
The combination of the two operating procedures burning & scrubbing in the smallest possible space
Waste gases are fed into a ring-shaped burner apparatus. Depending on the chemical composition of the waste gases, various reactions take place (oxidation, reduction, pyrolysis). In the subsequent scrubbing process, soluble, gaseous and solid compounds generated by combustion are absorbed and cooled down by a suitable scrubbing liquid.
Waste Gas Treatment for Resource Recovery presents the reader with technical, ecological and economical aspects of gaseous effluent treatment and resource recovery. Practical experience from industry and agriculture is presented, the role of newly developed advanced technology in future recycling of gas streams discussed and attention given to criteria for sustainability in gas treatment. Detailed analysis of material flows, novel process applications and bioreactor designs, odour quantification and removal process techniques and European legislations for waste gas discharge and recovery are highlights of the extensive and comprehensive coverage of this book.
Waste Gas Treatment for Resource Recovery will enable production, process and environmental engineers and managers to evaluate internal recycling possibilities, which contribute to an economically and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes with reduced pollution loads and waste gas volumes.
