Our Client: Italy’s National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA). This agency is responsible for the logistics and maintenance of the country’s two Antarctic stations.
We designed the entire APC system, including all ancillary equipment, to function effectively in extreme conditions and installed and commissioned it in the coldest place on earth.
Our Contract: Design, manufacture, install and commission a complete air pollution control (APC) solution for the new garbage incinerator at the Zucchelli Station, Italy’s National Antarctic Research Program, at Terra Nova Bay, along the coast of Victoria Land, Antarctica.
Our Challenge: Designing and commissioning a system meeting Redecam’s renowned efficiency and efficacy standards that would function without fail in the coldest place on earth. In addition, our engineering team had the uncommon task of designing the entire solution to permanently fit in shipping containers.
Our Solution: Redecam designed the kiln for cyclical incineration operations. Our APC solution included a Bag Filter as well as gas purification using Sorbalite®, a mix of lime and activated carbon removing SOX as well as mercury and other metals. We also designed, built, installed and tested all ancillary equipment.
