Flue gas cleaning system


The flue gas cleaning system is an integral part of every modern Waste-to-Energy plant. During combustion, pollutants contained in the waste are released and pass into the flue gases which must be cleaned before they can safely be allowed to enter the atmosphere. Suitable processes and components are combined according to technical and economical requirements.


Electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters, spray absorbers, scrubbers, activated coke processes, and SCR or SNCR systems are used in various combinations. MARTIN works with reputable suppliers who have an appropriate level of experience.


The clean gas emissions at the stack are continuously measured, monitored and clearly documented with state-of-the-art measurement devices. All plants built by MARTIN operate with emission values at or below the valid limits.

Exemplary flue gas cleaning systems in MARTIN plants are listed below:
