If you are tackling mercury emission problems at your plants as e.g. coal-fired utility boilers (power generation), combustors for municipal waste, hazardous waste, sewage sludges, toxic waste water – or at thermal treatment plants for contaminated soils and at other calcination processes – we provide solutions based on our patented technologies as e.g. the Bromine-Enhanced Mercury Oxidation (BEMO) technology.
Vosteen Consulting can assist you not only in improvements of wet and dry mercury capture, but also in other air pollution control amelioration, and we can help you in process optimization as the heightening of the combustion capacity and of the burn out (oxigen enrichment of the combustion air), prolongation of the kiln's brick life by controlled slagging (inner and outer thermografy of the rotary kiln), minimization of corrosion and emissions in combustion of halogenated liquid wastes (sulfur-dosing-ramp).
We have provided consulting experience to clients in USA, Europe and China for more than 15 years. If you want to profit from our know-how, please contact us.

Current operational tests for improved wet Hg capture using our precipitation agent PRAVO®200 at several hazardous waste incineration plants from SARP-Industries-Veolia (France) and mercury monitoring at municipal waste incineration plants.
Current operational tests for improved Hg oxidation and Hg capture by our licensee ANDRITZ at a lignite-fired combined heat and power plant (Germany) and tests at a coal-fired power plant (Poland).
The existing non-exclusive license of ANDRITZ for Europe has been extended to an exclusive license – but only for applications at coal-fired power plants.
Operating agents such as aqueous CaBr2 solutions as oxidizing agent or our PRAVO®100 or PRAVO®200 as precipitating agents are produced by our long-standing partners ICL-IP Europe BV (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Panchemie Dr. Fülöp (Kerpen, Germany).
In collaboration with partners such as Andritz Energy & Environment (Graz, Austria) or SARP Industries-Veolia (Limay, France), we are planning and conducting plant trials based on our patented technologies and issue any required test licenses or later operating licenses.
For the purpose of improving air pollution control at combustion plants (such as coal-fired power plants and waste incineration plants), we analyse such plants together with you and determine and evaluate economically advantages co-benefit solutions using our BEMO-Technology (bromine-based mercury oxidation) and our inorganic precipitation agents (PRAVO®100 and PRAVO®200).
For more than 3 years, Vosteen Consulting has been working closely with SARPI Veolia to reduce mercury emissions in domestic and hazardous waste incineration plants in France. The technology is in continuous use in many French plants and is gradually being extended to other plants.
