New technology for energy-efficient particle separation from flue-gases

Published: 10 March 2019

- Absorption technique is used in a plant where a water solution of a specific salt is circulated in a wet scrubber to clean stack gases from particles and absorb moisture.

- The aim of this project is to deepen the knowledge about the processes that governs the collection of particles with the purpose to optimize these processes.
