MES advanced incinerator design ensures there is zero risk to the environment
Climate change … climate crises … climate concern, they have all been hot topics (pardon the pun) over the past months and years and very much at the heart of the arguments has been the subject of uncontrolled emissions into the atmosphere. The irresponsible burning of waste and the reckless discharge of toxic fumes has been soundly condemned by people who have real concerns about the future of our planet. Some have even questioned whether risks are produced by burning waste in a commercial incineration plant. We can assure you that at Matthews Environmental Solutions (MES) our incinerator design disciplines ensure that all exhaust gases and fumes produced by the incineration process are scientifically and effectively treated before they are released into the atmosphere. The result is that no toxic or environmentally threatening emissions are dispersed to the air by the MES waste incineration process.
Of course, incinerator design and exhaust emissions are firmly and rigorously controlled by a number of international standards and regulations. Principal amongst which are the EU Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) 2010/75/EO, The EU Waste Incineration Directive (WID) 2000/76/EC, the US Environmental Protection Act (EPA) and of course the UK Secretary of State Guidance Notes PG5/3 (12).
MES incinerator design provides an assurance that all our waste incineration technology meets every one of these stringent controls. In addition, of course, you can be confident that they are fully compliant with many more environmental protection standards and regulations from countries and authorities all around the world.
At the heart of MES incinerator design technology is our Flue Gas Abatement system. This ensures that all exhaust fumes from the incineration process itself must pass through a dry gas abatement plant designed to cleanse the emissions before they are released into the atmosphere.
Flue Gas Abatement forms an essential aspect of our incinerator design technology. As the exhaust gas stream passes through this system it is injected with lime or bicarbonate that causes a chemical reaction effectively neutralising any acid components such a sulphur dioxide or hydrogen chloride. Simultaneously it is also injected with activated carbon to adsorb any heavy metals or dioxins that may also be present.
Even so, there is still yet another stage in the exhaust gas cleaning programme that is designed to capture residual dust from the combustion process along with the spent lime, sodium chloride and carbon. All of which is effectively retained on specially developed abatement plant filters.
The result is that only clean, non-toxic and pollution-free exhaust air is ever released into the atmosphere. As archived confirmation of this, our advanced incinerator design technology also constantly monitors the quality and content of the emissions, which are then duly recorded as a continuous stream of emissions data.
So you see, MES incinerator design technology really does ensure that there is zero risk to the environment.
