Catalytic Filtration in the Cement Industry

The best available pollution control technology

Wednesday 27 April 2022

Ceramic filtration, both catalytic (UCF) and non-catalytic (UTF), is now a widely accepted and preferred solution for the control of stack emissions. The technology initially built-up extensive references throughout the glass industry and has proven its versatility in meeting a variety of technical, economical, and regulatory drivers. Ceramic Filter technologies are often considered Best Available Control Technology (BAT / BACT / BARCT / RACT) in certain industries across North America, Europe and Asia.

Today, the ceramic filtration technology can look back on increasing acceptance throughout a variety of industries, which are all connected by similar circumstances. Ceramic Filters are now a proven alternative to traditional technologies such as Baghouse, ESP, and SCR when requiring high levels of reduction of NOx, SO2, and/or PM at high temperatures. The Technology is becoming increasingly cost-effective due to its high performance and lower operating costs when considered across the lifetime of the system.

In our article published in the magazine "Impiantistica Italiana" the technology of ceramic filtration applied in the cement industry, its development, and the advantages of its application are explained in detail. In particular, it highlights how ceramic filtration can reduce PM, NOx, and hazardous pollutants to extremely low values in one single step.
