Targeting acid gas emissions challenges in the non-ferrous metallurgy industry

Non-ferrous metallurgy applications such as the production and recovery of aluminum, copper, tin zinc and lead; the refining and recycling of precious or semi-precious metals; and the roasting of spent petrochemical rare metals catalysts involve a wide variety of processes which generate HCL and SOx emissions from either combustion or specific manufacturing steps. SOLVAir®’s sodium-based solutions can help drastically reduce these emissions by up to >99%, enabling the industry to easily comply with EPA regulations or other specific rules.

Non-ferrous metallurgy – simpler, more economical operations

In the non-ferrous metallurgy industry, recycling is both feasible and economically sound! Some manufacturing processes allow the recycling of residual sodium chemicals from flue gas treatment systems that use sodium bicarbonate. As a result, operators use less raw materials, and no flue gas purification residues have to be disposed of, which simplifies operations and reduces operating expenses.

Targeted Pollutants
For over 30 years, SOLVAir® S150 and S200 Trona,  and S300 and S350 Sodium Bicarbonate have helped eliminate or control SO2 and SO3 (SOx), HCl and mercury (Hg) in acid gas emissions. Our understanding of regulatory compliance, expertise in Dry Sorbent Injection, and our ongoing independent field tests help customers meet their compliance goals, both effectively and cost-effectively.

Industries Served
SOLVAir’s trona or sodium bicarbonate in a Dry Sorbent Injection system has effectively helped reduce or eliminate SO2, SO3 and HCl in flue gases in markets including coal fired power plants, cement, glass, biomass, waste-to-energy, industrial boilers and waste incinerators.

SOLVAir® Products
SOLVAir® Products, including S150 and S200 Trona, and S300 and S350 Sodium Bicarbonate, are the direct approach for air pollution control. Whether in wet or dry scrubbers or in Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) systems, these are the products your plant needs to clear the air.

The Responsible Care® Initiative
We are committed to sustainable development through the Responsible Care initiative, a policy adhered to by all Solvay companies, in every country in which Solvay has a presence. The Responsible Care initiative underscores our focus on continuous improvement in the health, safety and environment of our planet.
