Emissions and energy recovery_text

Implementation of new and innovative solutions for energy recovery and reduced emissions require fundamental knowledge of process emission formation and of the dust and fume properties.

To reduce gaseous and dust emissions, in-situ and on-line measuring methods will be used or developed to understand the effect of operational strategies and process variations beyond state of the art. Present industrial practice varies and this is reflected in some of the selected research activities. The impact of the method developments is expected to reach much wider than each task may suggest.


  • Develop fundamental understanding of the mechanisms which hinder enhanced energy recovery.
  • Improve application of advanced measurement equipment for an improved knowledge base of the relation emission formation, emission discharge and emission avoidance.
  • Implement (trace) emission monitoring as an efficient contribution to process control.
