Efficient cleaning of acid gases

Iron and steel works using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution can save money while treating their flue gases coming from the sintering plants, compared to other air emission control systems. 

The first step in steel factories, the sintering of iron ore, is essential to have a good yield in the blast furnace, in order to minimize the energy consumption and to reduce the amount of waste.

Many components are present in the raw materials of sintering belts, including sulfur and chlorides, leading to emission of sulfur oxides and hydrochloric acid.

The SOLVAir® Solution: dry sorbent injection of sodium bicarbonate for flue gas cleaning

Sodium Bicarbonate BICAR® has demonstrated without any doubt its effectiveness to treat acid pollutants. It can be a precious aid for iron and steel works to control their air emissions with a reasonable capital expense and the best performances / cost ratio.
