Industrial, medical and hazardous waste treatment at Dong Thanh Hazardous Waste Treatment Plant, Dong Thanh Commune, Hoc Mon District

Industrial, medical, and hazardous waste incinerators with a capacity of 21 tons/day (BI250S incinerator)

The BI250S incinerator imported by CITENCO from Belgium is a two-stage Rotary kiln pyrolysis technology, mainly used for hazardous waste treatment plants. With modern and advanced technology, the incinerator is capable of thoroughly handling all kinds of wastes (with difficult to decompose organic ingredients, causing bad odors, environmental pollution, not being able to reuse,...) in solid, gaseous, and liquid forms. The flue gas treatment system of incinerator applying modern technology, using sodium bicarbonate dosing system, activated carbon, bag filter, ID fan ensures the after-treatment flue gas meets current Vietnamese standards. Besides, the incinerator has an automatic temperature and gas control system, all parameters of temperature and flue gas are measured and displayed on the host computer. Therefore, it is possible to control the system to optimize the operation and ensure the after-treatment flue gas meets the current Vietnamese standards.
