Comply with regulatory requirements – ensure that waste incinerators meet the standards set by Directive 2010/75/EU on industrial emissions from energy from waste (EfW) plants.
Enhanced emission control for cleaner air quality – Control emissions of VOCs and POPs, specifically Dioxins and Furans which are harmful pollutants.
What is Residence Time Verification?
Envirocare’s Residence Time services provide verification of the required two-second residence time within secondary combustion chambers of waste incinerators that comply with Directive 2010/75/EU on industrial emissions from energy from waste (EfW) plants.
To ensure compliance, a two-second residence time with a residence temperature of 850oC must be confirmed during the commissioning phase. This verification is crucial to demonstrate that the minimum conditions are met, even under the most challenging operating circumstances.
We employ advanced Suction Pyrometers in our verification process, following documented procedures.
Why is it important to verify residence time at EfW plants?
Residence time plays a vital role in controlling emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), particularly Dioxins and Furans. The EU Directive on Industrial Emissions 2010/75/EU mandates that waste incineration plants must be designed, equipped, built, and operated in a manner that ensures the gas resulting from waste incineration reaches a temperature of 850 °C or higher for a minimum of two seconds.
Compliance Emission Monitoring at Wastewater Treatment CHP
Envirocare were commissioned to undertake Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) compliance emission monitoring at a Wastewater Treatment Works in South Wales.
