Introduction & Dioxin Voiceover
The world we live in today is full of amazing achievements most of which wouldn’t be possible without our strong industrial manufacturing infrastructure.
And while these plants and factories work hard to deliver the goods and services we depend on, we need to work equally as hard to minimize the emissions they can sometimes produce, our world depends on it.
That is where CRI comes in. Every day CRI Catalyst, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell researches and implements new innovative ways to help make reducing emissions a reality.
And now through our revolutionary catalytic reduction process, businesses can continue to produce the goods we need while reducing air pollution and helping create safer and cleaner environments.
Discover all of the ways that CRI can help you play your part in ensuring a cleaner environment for us all.
Dioxins are a group of chemical compounds that are known to produce the highest toxicity of any chemical.
Dioxins are produced as a result of combustion processes like commercial or municipal waste incineration and from burning fuels such as wood and coal.
If not kept in check, potentially harmful Dioxins can work their way into the food chain through ground water, building up.
But there is a way to help curb these effects.
Let’s take a look at a solid waste incinerator. While incinerating waste helps decrease the load on the world’s landfills, it also produces dioxins and furans.
The Shell Dioxin Destruction System enables dioxins to be reduced to extremely low levels while maintaining low flue gas temperatures. The two key features of the system are the proprietary high-activity catalyst from CRI and the Lateral Flow Reactor module - LFR - which contains the catalyst.
In this scenario flue gas leaving the incinerator enters the LFR through numerous gas inlet channels. As it travels laterally through the catalyst layers the dioxin compounds are converted to CO2, H20, and HCL.
The SDDS offers a simple and cost-effective design that can be easily retrofitted to many existing applications.
CRI catalyst systems have demonstrated 99.9%+ removal of dioxins and furans, meeting or exceeding all current global regulations. Now, that's a cool way to create a cleaner environment.
