Particles

How Particle emissions are formed and controlled.

How are Particle emissions formed?

During the incineration of waste in the furnace particles or dust is released into the flue gas. This dust is combusted waste, soot, or dust that is too light to be removed from the furnace into the ash pit.

How are Particle emissions controlled?

The last part of the plants gas cleaning process is the bag filter housing. This contains banks of bag filters, which capture the particulate and this forms part of the Air Pollution Control Residues (APCR). The APCR is then shipped off the island for treatment and disposal.
