Technical Bulletin No. 0034: Current Practices in Thermal Oxidation of Noncondensible Gases in the Kraft Industry (AQTB)

The attached National Council Technical Bulletin represents another in a continuing series of staff reviews of current air pollution control technology in the kraft industry. It provides a summary of available data on non-condensable gas volumes and composition, gas collection and flow equalization systems, safety and control features for thermal oxidation in lime kilns and auxiliary furnaces, and odor control results of thermal oxidation. Available cost data is also summarized, and supplemented in a useful appendix listing commercial sources of thermal oxidation process and control equipment.
