Particulates can have different chemical composition depending on their origin. They are generally composed of:
- Salts (nitrates, sulfates, carbonates…)
- Organic carbon
- Trace elements such as heavy metals…
- Black carbon (black carbon is linked to incomplete combustions of fossil fuels and biomass)
Of all the air pollution dust abatement technologies, wet scrubbing systems remain the most versatile and cost efficient. Depending on particle size distribution, dust composition and dust concentration, Waterleau has developed several processes to meet customer’s request.
