TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) of Tabriz Petrochemical Company (TPC) is online and operating in northwestern Iran.

According to the public relations department of TPC, the major environmental project which is aimed at gathering and disposing pollutant gases in the ABS unit of the facility, was launched officially in November.

 Since its launch, it has been repeatedly examined by environmental monitors since then and its functionality has been approved by the related authorities.

 The unit’s construction began in 2016 with Rl. 640 billion of investment.

 An RTO is a piece of industrial equipment used for the treatment of exhaust air.

 The system is a type of thermal oxidizer that uses a bed of ceramic material to absorb heat from the exhaust gas. It then uses this captured heat to preheat the incoming process gas stream and destroy air pollutants emitted from process exhaust streams at temperatures ranging from 815 °C (1,500 F) to 980 °C (1,800 F).

 With the implementation of the project, a significant portion of the volatile organic compound (VOC) content of the ABS unit is collected through a channel using a blower system and sent to a special furnace at 800 to 1000° C temperatures.
