Incinerators for Flue gasses and human health damage - Energy - Fuel Cells
Not all flue gasses are in large quantities present in the flue gas of the incineration process. The EU incineration law takes care that it is possible to operate a hazardous, medical or domestic waste incinerator even in the middle of a city.
The environmental impact ca nbe split up in 3 categories:
- Human damage
- Eco system damage
- Consumption of natural sources
The pollution degree depends on the amount and concentration of emissions, so the disperion from the chimney or stack.
More data is needed to know the pollution impact of a stack. The background pollution (highways, cars, houses, ...), hourly metreological data, detailed geographical data and other pollution sources. Afther all this data is collected the simulation can be done. Air pollution simulation software developed by universities is available for free:
Incinerators have a continious emission monitoring system and calculate the half hourly average value and the daily average value.
Here we discuss:
- how the chemical formation is, and at which temperature,
- what is the most popular pollution source,
- what are the health effects,
- the adviced values for secure levels, if they exist.
