At its core, the COMPLY 2000™ applies both gas/vapor and condensing techniques to emission control and proven scrubbing technology. The Unit generates a minimum of wastewater by utilizing an equally proven hydronic hot-gas-to-water heat recovery technology.
The COMPLY 2000 is designed to remove multi-products of combustion typically classified as NOx, SO2, CO2, unburned hydrocarbons (UHC), particulate matter and heavy metals. Unlike current methods that reduce each of these emissions individually, the COMPLY 2000 eliminates virtually all of these emissions from flue gasses concurrently, therefore, controlling costs.
To achieve the unprecedented multi-pollutant removal levels, the COMPLY 2000 uses an ozone injection process for NOx conversion. A fogging spray is mixed with a hydrogen peroxide solution for SO2 conversion that is condensed concurrently with other pollutants over coils to remove all combustion emissions from the exhaust gas stream. This process converts NOx and SO2 to nitric and sulfuric acid in the wastewater stream collected at the bottom of the COMPLY 2000 unit. Simultaneously, unburned hydrocarbons and particulate matter are removed during the condensation phase along with carbonic acid resulting from dissolved CO2. This wastewater can then be treated and recycled.
Hot dirty flue gas is drawn up through the boiler breeching. In the breeching, it passes through the O3 ASPIRATOR where the flue gas is mixed with O3 (Ozone) to convert NO to NO2 and as a result, becomes water soluble before entering the COMPLY 2000 unit. As the gas then enters the unit, it blends with the first fog field where a full gas–to–liquid contact takes place. The fogging process floods the product of combustion (POC) and fog mix with condensation nuclei, encouraging acid vapor forming hydrolysis reactions.
As the mixed moist gas passes through the cooling coil, the condensing coils extract BTUs (heat) and the captured pollutants run off of the finned coil to the drain. The treated gas then passes through the second fog field where the moisture levels are elevated and the cooling coil is cleaned of any dirt or soot. From the second fog field, the clean gas passes through the condensing coil where any other BTU are extracted, and the clean gas is cooled to lower temperatures. From the condensing coil, the clean cool gas is directed to the outside air. The wastewater enters the holding tank to be treated (acids to be neutralized). After treatment, it is recycled back to the high-pressure pumps for use in the foggers. The fan speed becomes the negative draft control for the boiler that will modulate with the different boiler loads.
