Solvay will present innovation that helps eliminate pollutants
Interview with Ivaylo Betsinski, GBU Soda Ash & Derivatives, Sales Manager East Europe & ME
Mr. Betsinski why have you chosen Save the Planet as a platform for the presentation of "SOLVAir® Solutions?
Save the Planet is a specialised exhibition with a long track, whose development we follow since the beginning and believe that the time has come to present our "know how" and experience in the field of purification of harmful emissions in the flue gases.
Tell us about this innovative solution? For what industries is it appropriate and what are your customers?
SOLVAir®Solutions covers a wide range of products, services, technologies and systems for processing and control of air emissions, based on sodium bicarbonate. Our customers are industrial enterprises such as incinerators (WtE plants), power generations, industrial boilers, cement, glass industry, etc.
Currently, over 300 customers (only in Europe) use SOLVAir®Solutions in order to eliminate acid pollutants (SOx, HCl, HF) and comply with the stringent standards. Our processes are fully compatible with the most efficient Nitrogen and Sulphur oxides' (NOX & SOx) neutralizing technologies. We have already gained over 30 years of experience.
Will the control strengthen with the adopted amendments to the Clean Air Act, according to which the state and municipalities have the opportunity to impose heavy sanctions on companies and individuals whose activities harmful emissions into the atmosphere? What will be the effect and it will lead to greater demand for your technology?
According to the EU directive on Industrial emissions, the strengthening of the control from 01.01.2016 and applying additional limitations of industrial emissions (> 2.5 times) are a must. Our technology doesn’t require large investments and is highly effective&efficient from technological and financial point of view. We are actively working for its implementation in our country, both in new and in already operating combustion plants.
