For compliance with the EU Waste Incineration Directive 76/2000, exhaust gases can be directed through a dry gas abatement plant. This comprises of a bag or ceramic filter house and a storage/feed system for the sodium bicarbonate and activated carbon system. Gases that exit the energy recovery plant are injected with lime or sodium bicarbonate and activated carbon that are stored in containers or silos which lie adjacent to the gas cleaning system. The lime/sodium bicarbonate reacts to neutralise acid components found in the gas, including sulphur dioxide and hydrogen chloride, while the carbon absorbs heavy metals and any dioxins.
