REMEDIATION OF SOIL & WATER & RECYCLING OF SCRAP
Soil and water at sites of former petroleum refineries (or even old fuel filling stations) typically have to be cleaned (remediated) to remove the BTEX products and residual sulphuric tars. The tars are typically neutralised using hydrated lime. However, owing to the exothermal reaction, VOC emissions and extremely high SOx peaks of up to 30g/m3 can occur. LTB ROxiTHERM regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) technology and DrySORB Sulfex DeSOx scrubbers can be used to treat these pollutant emissions.
Recycling plants also generate a number of unwanted gaseous and particulate emissions which must be controlled. Depending on the process, LTB OxiTHERM thermal oxidiser or ROxiTHERM RTO technology is used for this application.
