  1. 1. Catalytic Incineration of CO and VOC Emissions over Supported Metal Oxide Catalysts

    Author : Per-Olof Larsson; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titania; Ceria; Manganese oxide; Copper oxide; VOC; CO; Ethanol; Ethyl acetate; Metal oxide catalysts; Catalytic combustion; Catalytic incineration; Alumina.; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Fysicumarkivet A:1999:Larsson;

    Abstract : Catalytic incineration is one of the methods to reduce the emissions of CO and VOCs. Low operation temperature and low catalyst cost are essential parameters for catalytic incinerators. Pt/Al2O3 catalysts are frequently used today, but the cheaper metal oxide catalysts can be very competitive if comparable overall activity is obtained. READ MORE

  2. 2. The relationship between fly ash chemistry and the thermal formation of polychlorinated pollutants during waste incineration

    Author : Duong Ngoc Chau Phan; Stellan Marklund; Bogdan Dlugogorski; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Incinerations; dioxins; PCDD Fs; PCBs; PCNs; flue gas; fly ash; sampling; particle characterization; XPS; XRD; SEM EDX; formation; chlorination; PCA; OPLS; OPLS-DA;

    Abstract : The thermal formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), biphenyls (PCBs), and naphthalenes (PCNs) is a major problem in waste incineration. Ideally, rather than relying on air cleaning systems and treatment techniques, their formation should be minimized or, if possible eliminated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Iron-based materials as tar cracking catalyst in waste gasification

    Author : Thomas Nordgreen; Krister Sjöström; Truls Liliedahl; Rainer Reimert; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The treatment of municipal solid waste (MSW) in Sweden has changed during the past decades due to national legislation and European Union directives. The former landfills have more or less been abandoned in favour of material recycling and waste incineration. On a yearly basis approximately 2. READ MORE

  4. 4. CFD-modelling of the SNCR process in iron ore grate-kiln plants

    Author : Per E.C. Burström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : LKAB (Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara AB) is an international company that producesiron ore products for the steel industry; their main product is iron ore pellets.The aim with this research project is to numerically investigate if it is possible to use selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) technologies in grate-kiln pelletizingplants for NOx reduction.
