Equipment, process controls and process revisions were instituted that shortened start up time. Also the start up gases were routed to the waste heat boilers for thermal destruction.
The changes were made possible by the installation of a new computer control system that provides safety safeguards during the revised start up process
The shortened start up time and the routing of the start up gases to the waste heat boiler reduced the amount of wastes produced by 200,000 pounds a year.
Details of Reductions
Additional Information :
The shortened start up time reduced waste and increased production. The total payback period for the project is 3.5 years
