Use of regenerated ferric oxide for CO destruction and suppressing dioxin formation in flue gas in a pilot-scale incinerator

, : Use of regenerated ferric oxide for CO destruction and suppressing dioxin formation in flue gas in a pilot-scale incinerator. Chemosphere 53(7): 727-735

Catalytic destruction of chlorinated compounds is one of the key methods in reducing pollutant emissions. For the purpose of utilizing waste materials, a catalyst was regenerated from ferric ion sludge, obtained from the addition of iron salts to precipitate heavy metals. The sludge was dewatered, heated (800 degrees C for 4 h), and ground into smaller particles. The regenerated ferric oxide particles were then used as the oxidation catalyst to destroy CO formation during the combustion of three chlorinated solvents and to suppress dioxin formation in flue gas in a real waste solvent. In the presence of catalyst, the combustion efficiency (ratio of CO2 to the sum of CO2 and CO) for chlorobenzene was more than 98% at 850 degrees C in a pilot-scale incinerator. The destruction and removal efficiencies of chlorobenzene, 2,4-dichlorophenol and trichlorofluoroethane were more than three nines. In the absence of catalysts, the flue gas emission from a real waste could not meet the regulatory dioxin standard of 0.1 ng-TEQ/N m3 even with the powdered activated carbon injection. The use of catalyst at either 100 or 300 g/h, however, was able to meet the emission standard.
