    Nitrogen reduction with AEC scrubber

    nitrogen approach at poultry slaughterhouse

    Client request

    A medium-sized poultry slaughterhouse and meat processing company needs to convert the existing scrubber into an acid scrubber. It is important to reduce nitrogen (ammonia) emissions. With the existing scrubber, intended for dust and odour reduction, the company can no longer meet the strict standards set by the Dutch government. What is required to comply with government regulations?

    The wet scrubber has been converted to an acid scrubber with fuly automatic control. The configuration of the single-stage scrubber has been extended to acid dosing. Nitrogen is washed out of the air cand converted into a liquid fertilizer that can be reused in arable farming and horticulture. This significantly reduces nitrogen emissions (ammonia) by approximately 95%.

    The control system has been adapted in such way that it meets all government requirements, such as logging data and providing remote support with service and advice.

    The work was completed in 3 days. The business activities could continue as usual during the work of the AEC technicians. The desired emission standards are met with this combination.

    With this adjustment, the nitrogen emissions of the poultry slaughterhouse have been significantly reduced. Would you like to reduce the nitrogen emissions of your business process? Then contact us for a consultation.

    The adjustment consists of:

    • Adding chemicals/acid dosage
    • Control adjustment
    • Adjusting pumps and piping
    • Start-up and test the installation

    The advantages of our approach

    With this converted scrubber, the influence of nitrogen deposition - caused by the company in nature reserves including Natura 2000 - is reduced to almost zero.

    The newly installed operating system also directly meets the current government requirements for logging data. In addition, it is possible to access the system from your own PC network and via smartphone.

    The system is easily accessible for maintenance and service.
