Efforts to minimize the heat trapping effects of greenhouse gases on climate include purifying, capturing, and storing (sequestering) carbon dioxide in geologic formations. These formations include oil and gas reservoirs, saline aquifers, and coal seams. It is critical that the stored carbon dioxide does not leak back into the atmosphere too rapidly, and carbon sequestration sites are equipped with sensors to detect carbon dioxide leaks.
Glass production generates SOx in flue gas emissions in large concentrations from 7-30% depending on the specific glass product. Capturing such high amounts of SOx can be a challenge, but SOLVAir®’s sodium sorbents in DSI can neutralize the acid components in flue gases to comply with legal emission limits. Not only that, but its highly efficient mitigation of SOx can enable glass manufacturers to achieve substantial energy savings!
