  • FLU-ACE ®/COGEN/Boiler System. FLU-ACE ® System is an effective and highly efficient air pollution control and waste heat recovery system using a direct-contact liquid-to-gas mass transfer and heat exchange concept. FLU-ACE ® System is configured as a corrosion resistant alloy steel tower, a fraction the size of any existing stack. All the hot flue gas from one source or multiple sources are re-directed into FLU-ACE ® tower where it is cooled to within 1-2°C of the primary water return temperature which enters the tower typically at 30°C/86°F to 40°C/104°F (depending on season). The heat from flue gas is transferred to the primary water which then is at temperatures up to 63°C/145°F (and with special design, up to 82°C/180°F) and circulated to the various heat users. It reduces air pollutant emissions by up to 99% and, at the same time, it recovers 80-90% of the heat in the flue gas presently exhausted into the atmosphere. This results in reduction of fuel consumption of the facility by 15-25% depending on the fuel. The system actually pays for itself within five years depending on energy prices, hours of operation and design complexity. The FLU-ACE ®/COGEN/Boiler System is designed to utilize all the recovered waste heat which results in generating electricity at prices from $0.02/kWh to $0.03/kWh.

  • High Performance (HP) FLU-ACE ® Systems or Hybrid FLU-ACE ® Systems. When compared with the Standard FLU-ACE ® System, HP FLU-ACE ® System and Hybrid FLU-ACE ® (suitable for wood chips, bark, wood waste, incineration, etc.) designed to process dirty flue gas and to dramatically reduce air pollutant emissions by 99%: Acid gases (i.e. sulfur oxides) by over 95% Particulate (i.e. dust, soot, ash, etc.) by up to 99% (down to 0.3 microns in size) Halogenides (i.e. HCl, HF, HBr) by up to 99% Trace hydrocarbons (THC), organic toxins by 99% VOCs by up to 99% Noxious odours by up to 99% Greenhouse gases (i.e. carbon dioxide) by up to 50% Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) by 95%, nitrogen monoxide (NO) by 25% to 50% Visible plume by 70-90%. This exceeds all existing and meets even the strictest emission limits for incineration facilities and sets the standard for the future. At the same time it recovers 80-90% of the heat in the flue gas presently exhausted into the atmosphere. This results in reduction of energy consumption of gas and oil fuelled burners by 15-25% and in having more heat available for sale. In effect, the capabilities of a Electro-static Precipitator, Scrubber, Waste Heat Recovery Unit and Smoke Stack are replaced with one FLU-ACE ® tower thus achieving significant savings in capital costs and operating and maintenance costs. The energy savings from waste heat recovery enables the FLU-ACE ® System to pay for the control of the dirtiest flue gases. The result was a high performance system which virtually eliminates air pollutant emissions from biomedical waste incinerators, while at the same time, paying for itself through energy recovery savings. The HP FLU-ACE ® will capture and remove particulate (90-99%), SOx (over 95%), HCl, HF, and HBr (up to 99%), VOCs, and Patts (up to 99%). HP FLU-ACE ® will effectively control emissions from "dirty" flue including municipal waste, biomedical waste, biomass, coal, hog fuel, and wood waste. Similarly Hybrid FLU-ACE ® will effectively control emissions from bark, biomass, etc. combustion. It recovers 3 to 4 times more heat than conventional indirect economizer systems. It also provides large quantities of water for recycling. Simple payback on capital investment is usually between three (3) and six (6) years, depending on the size, flue, operation time and design complexity, utilization of the recovered waste heat.

  • Low NOx FLU-ACE ® System (globally patented). A NO to NO2 converter unit is added to Standard FLU-ACE ® System to oxidize 95% of NO to obtain NO2. As the Standard FLU-ACE ® System is designed to recover NO2 by 95%, the Low NOx FLU-ACE ® System will reduce NOx by 90% and SOx still by over 95%. Operational cost and maintenance of the System is lower than the best Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) and Non-Selective Catalytic Reduction (NSCR) technologies. Low NOx FLU-ACE ® System is 30-50% less expensive per ton of NOx removed than SCR or SNCR. In combination with the Standard, HP, Hybrid, or any other FLU-ACE ® System the Low NOx FLU-ACE ® System will achieve 80-90% waste heat recovery.

  • Standard FLU-ACE ® System. FLU-ACE ® System is an effective and highly efficient air pollution control and waste heat recovery system using a direct-contact liquid-to-gas mass transfer and heat exchange concept. FLU-ACE ® System is configured as a corrosion resistant alloy steel tower, a fraction the size of any existing stack. All the hot flue gas from one source or multiple sources are re-directed into one FLU-ACE ® tower where it is cooled to within 1-2 °C of the primary water return temperature which enters the tower at between 30°C/86°F and 40°C/104°F (depending on season). The heat from flue gas is transferred to the primary water which then is at temperatures up to 63°C/145°F (and with special design, up to 82°C/180°F) and circulates to the various heat users. Each FLU-ACE ® System is custom designed using proven technology to be integrated with the existing flue gas source. No changes to the boilers (or other combustion equipment) or to the fuel are necessary. Standard FLU-ACE ® System dramatically reduces air pollutant emissions by up to 99% specifically: Acid gases (i.e. sulfur oxides) by over 95% Particulate (i.e. dust, soot, ash, etc.) by up to 99% Trace hydrocarbons (THC), organic toxins by 99% VOCs by up to 99% Noxious odours by up to 99% Greenhouse gases (i.e. carbon dioxide) by up to 50% Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) by 95%, nitrogen monoxide (NO) by 25% to 50% Visible plume by 70-90%. ThIs exceeds all existing and meets even the strictest emission limits and sets the standard for the future. At the same time and simultaneously it recovers over 80% and up to 90% of the heat in the flue gas presently exhausted into the atmosphere. This results in reduction of energy consumption on gas and oil fuelled burners by 15-25%. It recovers 3 to 4 times more heat than conventional indirect stact economizer systems. It also provides large quantities of water for recycling. Typical simple payback on capital investment for installation of Standard FLU-ACE ® System is from two (2) to three (3) years in continuous year round operations (i.e. industrial) and three (3) to five (5) years for institutional (i.e. university, hospital, etc.) application, depending on the type of flue gas, the size and design complexity.
