Description: Waste gas destruction at an aluminum smelter
This project focuses on utilizing environmentally friendly technology at an aluminum smelter in India.
The primary aim of the project is to reduce harmful PFCs. (Per fluorocarbon gases). These gases are emitted during the anode effect at the smelter. The project converted HSS technology to Point Fed Prebake technology (PFPB), which resulted in the following emissions reductions from:
Reduction in PFCs emission from anode effect mitigation.
Improvement in electrical energy efficiency leading to equivalent carbon-dioxide emission reduction from the sources of power generation.
This project is registered with the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC).
