Abstract:

Data are presented to show that a rare earth based catalyst shows promise in application to the conversion of NOx and SOx from Red Water Incineration. CO is employed as a reducing agent to convert these pollutants to N2 and elemental sulfur respectively. Important advantages of the catalyst are ability to withstand poisoning by water and oxygen, and complete conversion to easily disposed products with no side production of carbonyl sulfide or hydrogen sulfide. A tentative plant design is proposed and an estiate of the economics involved in conversion of gases from incineration of the Red Water from a 50 Tday TNT plant. Author
