Abstract
A UNIQUE GAS TURBINE/VOC INCINERATION SYSTEM BASED ON CATALYTICALLY STABILIZED (CST) INCINERATION IS PROPOSED, OFFERING BOTH VERY LOW NET CONSTS AND ULTRA HIGH DESTRUCTIONOF ORGANICS IN ANY ORGANIC FUME OR AIR STREAM, INCLUDING THOSE LADEN WITH PARTICULATES (WHETHER ORGANIC, SUCH AS COTTON OR GRAIN DUSTS, OR INORGANIC SUBMICRON PARTICLES). THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE IMPROVED DISTRUCTION COMPARED TO ALTERNATE APPROACHES, SUCH AS GAC, CATALYTIC OXIDATION AND THERMAL INCINERATION, AND AT THE SAME TIME THROUGH ITS ELECTRICITY-GENERATING CONFIDURATION WILL GENERATE SUFFICIENT ELECTRICITY TO REDUCE NET COSTS WELL BELOW THOSE OF THE ALTERNATE SYSTEMS. PHASE I WILL INVOLVE LABORATORY TESTING OF THE COMBUSTOR COMPONENT OF THE SYSTEM AS WELL AS PRELIMINARY SYSTEM DESIGN. SEVERAL VOC STREAMS WILL BE TESTED. DESTRUCTION EFFICIENCY GREATER THAN 99.9999% IS EXPECTED AND ORGANIC SUBMICRON SIZE PARTICULATE MATTER WILL ALSO BE COMBUSTED. IN PHASE II, A FIELD PROTOTYPE WILL BE BUILT AND OPERATED.
