4. Description of the equipment and/or process
I.T.R. is the name chosen by Amboso for its new regenerative type of incinerator plant with intrinsic heat recovery, i.e. a combustion system in which the heat energy is recovered inside the plant with the maximum possible efficiency. Compared with other abatement systems, the regenerative combustion unit (incinerator) is ideal for the incineration of any type of volatile organic compound in gaseous form also in low concentrations (chlorinated and non-chlorinated solvents, inflammable compounds, hydrocarbons, odours); furthermore it has the advantage of minimizing running costs and consumption of primary energy sources.
The contaminants in the gaseous stream are eliminated by exposing them for a period of time in accordance with current regulations and at a temperature such that complete oxidation is always guaranteed. Likewise for this type of plant (exactly as for the catalytic incinerator) the combustion products formed by the exothermic reaction are mainly carbon dioxide and water vapour.
The thermal-regenerative combustion process is highly versatile as regards treatment of the gaseous emissions. Moreover it is practically unaffected by any variations in chemical composition of the emission, such circumstance frequently occurring in industrial processes involved with the manufacture of diversified products and which can vary rapidly over a period of time, depending on market requirements.
