Abstract
An innovative, high destruction efficiency, and low fuel consumption VOCs incinerator is proposed to reduce VOCs from condensate tank, or other low heat value waste gas emissions from different air pollution sources. The proposed technology use highly effective heat recirculation to extend the flammability of the reactants stream. There is no moving part or catalyst involved that significantly reduces the capital and operational cost. The Phase I work will focus on demonstrating the feasibility of the proposed concept. A bench scale incinerator will be designed and fabricated. Steady and unsteady state input tests will be performed. In addition, collaboration with interested partners will be built up. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The proposed technology could be applied to several waste gas incineration applications, such as landfill gas, chemical plants, hospital, etc. The low fuel consumption, high destruction efficiency, and low capital and operational cost are the competitive edges of this technology.
