||Thanks to VICHEMís thermal oxidation system
- pulvaporization - it is now possible to treat gaseous
or liquid waste with very high viscosity, while, at the
same time, maintaining dioxins and nitrogen oxides at
a very low level in the process - thus protecting the
VICHEM specialises in the design, installation and commissioning
of turnkey units for waste treatment and will be showcasing
its technology at various trade fairs to be held in Central
& Eastern Europe - as well as China - in the autumn. The company
is seeking local partners.
The revolutionary design of the oxidizer, the pulvaporization
system developed by VICHEM, enables it to atomize and vaporize
the waste in one single step. Independent tests, performed
on site, have proved that this unique thermal oxidation system
gives a DRE (Destruction and Removal Efficiency) of more than
99.99%, with stack emissions well within existing environmental
The system developed by VICHEM has unequalled reliability
and can operate for up to 8,500 hours per year.
Each unit consists of a burner, a furnace and a quench unit
- and has been used for the destruction of chlorinated and/or
fluorinated waste, in which the halogenated content can vary
from very low to very high concentration, while recovering
energy through steam production.
These innovative systems make it possible to treat waste
with a high salt content, while recovering energy in the form
VICHEMís technology for treating halogenated waste makes
it possible to recycle acids such as HCl, HF and HBr, depending
on the application.
VICHEM has also widened the field of applications for its
system so as to successfully treat specific types of industrial
waste - hazardous or very hazardous.
In addition, VICHEM supplies a number of pollution-management
systems, including - oxidation, gas filtration, energy recovery,
gas scrubbing, absorption and adsorption, stripping, quench
systems and pure acid production, among others.
With the benefit of 50 years of experience - and thanks to
this advanced technology in the field of industrial waste
treatment, whether the waste is solid, liquid or gaseous -
VICHEM counts many sector leaders among its clients, including
- Atofina, Rhone-Poulenc, Solvay, and Rhodia.
In the UK, the French specialist company supplies Rhodia
Fine Organics with its waste-treatment unit and is looking
for new partners.
In the Republic of Ireland and in the Netherlands, VICHEM
is looking for a local representative to sell and distribute
its innovative systems in the country.
