The new Regenerative Thermal Oxidiser has proven to be ideal for Moy Park as it allows for up to 25,000Nm3/hr (normalised cubic metres per hour) of cooking exhaust to be treated with the minimum of natural gas input.
A rocket is basically an engine which carries both a fuel and oxidiser (it does not require any oxygen from the air).
The reason for this is not fully understood; however, it has been hypothesised that this difference may have been brought about by a shift in the C[H.sub.4.sup.+]-oxidising community away from methanotrophic organisms towards ammonia oxidisers (Benstead and King 2001).
The process involves pre-heating the furnace (to very high temperatures) and the use of natural gas (450AC) as fuel and pure oxygen (550AC) as oxidiser. The beneficiary already has manufacturing technology that uses hot oxy combustion but this is not fully compatible with natural gas.
O'Sullivan CA, Wakelin SA, Fillery IRP, Gregg AL, Roper MM (2011) Archaeal ammonia oxidisers are abundant in acidic, coarse-textured Australian soils.
Sagemis offers products and services in the field of petrochemical, oil and gas and air pollution control, including flares, thermal oxidisers, regenerative thermal oxidisers, and sulphur recovery systems.
The Ensus plant opened in 2010, but odour problems with its giant stacks soon after meant the company had to spend a further PS6m on regenerative thermal oxidisers (RTOs) to correct the problem.
In the 1000 kg N/ha treatment, high soil N[O.sub.2.sup.-] concentrations on Day 21 corresponded with high soil N[H.sub.4.sup.+] concentrations and the continued presence of N[H.sub.3], suggesting that N[O.sub.2.sup.-] oxidisers were indeed inhibited.
The addition of ammonium to soils through fertilisers may temporarily inhibit C[H.sub.4] uptake through competition between some methanotrophic groups and ammonium oxidisers for oxygen in the soil atmosphere.
