Installation of an RTO in Averio Portugal

Aug 26, 2022

Kalfrisa continues its commitment to environmental protection and energy efficiency. The installation and commissioning of a Volatile Organic Compounds elimination system was recently completed at the facilities of the company COATED SOLUTIONS located in Aveiro, Portugal. Coated Solutions is an international steel coil producer specialised in pickling, cold rolling, galvanising and high quality pre-painting, with several industrial plants in Spain and Portugal.

With this installation, Kalfrisa takes another step forward in its successful collaboration with Coated Solutions, with whom Kalfrisa has already carried out similar projects in the past that include treatment of gaseous emissions and energy recovery systems. The equipment installed has a treatment capacity of 45,000 Nm3/h and incorporates a heat recovery system that allows the energy generated in the gas oxidation process to be used in the production process. In this way, we achieve a double objective: on the one hand, to comply with European regulations on emissions of volatile organic compounds and, on the other hand, to generate energy that is used in the form of hot air in the customer’s furnaces, which allows us to optimise production costs.
