Odour abatement at a foundry (amines), Germany

Georg Fischer is one of Europe’s largest producers of auto parts. Undergoing a three months trial with a full size installation, INFUSER managed to document a 90% amines removal. In the present solution, ozone is mixed into the exhaust and the mixture is exposed to UV lights. The produced OH radicals react with the pollution and oxidised it. The particles are captured in an ESP unit and residual ozone removed in a catalyst. This is the only installation in the world where amines are captured without pressure drop in the treatment system and most likely the most energy efficient solution available.
