Thermal oxidizers are used to destroy Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from industrial air streams. These pollutants are generally hydrocarbon based and when destroyed via thermal combustion they are chemically changed to form CO2 and H2O.
Normally are Propane or Natural gas used as fuel for thermal oxidizers.
The Dall Energy multifuel biomass furnace can be used as thermal oxidizer for destruction of VOC´s or other organic compounds in air. Hereby become destruction of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) CO2 neutral.
The first biomass based thermal oxidizer was installed at Warwick Mills, New Hampshire, USA.
In plant was built in 2013 and commissioned in 2014.
The plant have a destruction efficiency of 99.8-99.9 %, which is even higher than fossil fuel based oxidizers.
Emissions of NOx, CO and dust are extreamly low: NOx: 40 ppm, CO: 10 ppm, dust: 10 mg/Nm3, and the the plant do not have any type of baghouse, ESP, cyklones or catalyst.
