Industrial production processes generate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that must be treated to prevent their release into the atmosphere and thus reduce their polluting effect. Thermal oxidation systems are among the most efficient technologies for the treatment of (VOCs) gas emissions.
Thermal oxidation is a process that transforms polluting compounds into products with a reduced environmental impact through the following reaction:
This combustion reaction takes place under appropriate conditions of temperature, turbulence and time.
Depending on each process needs, the activation energy necessary to carry out the reaction and the generated heat can be recovered by means of heat exchange units.
