SOx emissions can be formed by the combustion oxidation of Sulfur bearing compounds commonly found in many industrial vent streams. Similar to the concepts outlined above, mitigation of Sulfur Compounds in the vent stream will reduce generation of SOx.
Depending on the nature of the vent stream, a range of solid and liquid phase adsorption/absorption technologies can be employed to capture Sulfur bearing compounds ahead of any Thermal Oxidation processes which may be required to remove associated Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Depending on the amount and degree of VOC and SOx removal required, post treatment of SOx after Thermal Oxidation may be the most robust and cost effective means of managing SOx emissions.
Epcon has designed, manufactured, commissioned and serviced a broad range of NOx and SOx systems across different industries/applications around the globe. Epcon has provided these services as stand-alone controls or as a part of a complete emissions control solutions.
Please contact us to discuss your specific application requirements and to learn more about the innovative NOx and SOx Abatement strategies Epcon has provided to our customers since 1977.
