New facility for the elimination of Volatile Organic Compounds in Almeria

Jan 20, 2023

Kalfrisa continues with its commitment to environmental protection and energy efficiency. We are therefore pleased to announce that a new regenerative thermal oxidation system has been installed and commissioned at the Cosentino group’s facilities in Almeria to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds.

With this installation, a successful customer-supplier relationship of more than two decades continues, in which Kalfrisa and Cosentino were pioneers in the installation in Spain of this type of technology to avoid atmospheric pollution.

Over the years, Kalfrisa has continued with a clear process of continuous improvement, which continues today, and which leads to the pursuit of such priority and current objectives as the reduction of fossil fuel consumption, or the use of alternative energy sources from renewable sources.

The new thermal oxidation facility installed at Cosentino is capable of treating a flow of contaminated gases of 122,000 Nm3/h in a 5-tower unit. Furthermore, this new installation maintains the design principles that guarantee an energy efficiency of over 96%, as well as self-thermality, i.e. a completely self-sustainable purification process, as long as the concentration of volatile organic compounds in the customer’s production process is sufficient.

Finally, it should also be noted that one of the keys to the correct operation of the installation is its preventive maintenance, a fundamental pillar in which Kalfrisa works hand in hand with all its customers.
