Vapor-rich and wastewater waste streams, such as those from the rendering process, pose challenges for traditional treatment systems. Gulf Coast Environmental Systems provides robust, economic solutions to these challenges utilizing thermal oxidizers which apply the combination of heat and time to combust pollutants into harmless CO2 and water.
Some of the harshest pollution control applications are in the rendering field of the food processing industry. The waste stream can contain odors, ammonia, fats, grease, water and other vapors, and even particulate matter, all in a wide ranging mix. GCES’ custom designs systems to handle these difficult processes based on each facilities waste output and goals. Included in our solution is the Aqueous RTO wastewater destruction system with capabilities that allow for processing of both air and water pollution simultaneously. The process is controlled through metered injection of the water into a pre-heated inlet stream into the oxidizer for complete destruction using the standard oxidation process. The following is a comparison of the Aqueous Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) and a Vapor-Tolerant RTO for implementation in the treatment of food rendering waste streams. [Read more…]
