Waste air treatment

Energy-efficient process combination of a dielectric impeded discharge

The aim of this project is an energy-efficient process combination of a dielectric impeded discharge (DBD) with photocatalytic active dielectric barrier material, adapted mineral adsorber and bio scrubbers for the treatment of odour-intensive VOC-, NH3- and N2O-containing exhaust air flows, which also contain CH4 as a subordinate component. Such waste air flows occur, for example, in animal husbandry, animal meal and sewage sludge drying as well as waste composting and have not yet been adequately treated.
