LAB, a CNIM Group company, offers a range of technologies and services of flue gas cleaning for the treatment of all kind of emissions from Waste-to-Energy plants, power plants, industry and ships. Lab is involved as well in the precious metals recovery in bottom ashes from waste incineration. LAB’s solutions are designed to preserve air quality and reduce the amount of residues.
Reduction in NOx emissions from big combustion plants between 1980 and 2012
Plants worldwide are equipped with CNIM/LAB technology and systems for flue gas treatment
Of emissions reductions at CHP plants are achieved by the solutions offered by CNIM/LAB
Flue gas treatment
LAB designs, builds and commissions turnkey systems flue gas cleaning plants for Waste-to-Energy plants, biomass power plants, thermal power plants, industrial plants or ships. Leader in its market sector, LAB has developed its own portfolio of processes – all of which comply with the European Union benchmark for Best Available Techniques (BAT). All of them guarantee emissions limits much below the levels requested by the EU directives.
Flue gas condensation heat recovery has become a key challenge for our customers as it significantly increases the energy efficiency of waste-to-energy and power plants. The high-performance flue gas condensation units supplied by LAB can be used in combination with all available flue gas treatment processes.
LAB proposes a portfolio of processes for the recovery of metal content from incinerator bottom ash. These turnkey solutions offer industrial systems with a high-quality metal concentrate, thereby creating a new resource. LAB also provides stabilization processes for combustion gas residues (fly ash, dust, solid residues of flue gas treatment). Rendered inert, these residues become waste that is currently categorized as non-hazardous, according to current legislation. The quantity of waste at the end of these processes and their cost of disposal becomes significantly smaller.
As part of its catalog of turnkey solutions for emissions treatment, LAB offers installations for treating liquid effluents. Whether in the case of scrubber blowdown or the treatment of condensates from flue gases, the aim is to reuse as much as possible of the process water and boiler feedwater. These installations may be supplemented by specific treatments for ash washing or for gypsum production.
LAB Service offers a wide range of tailored services for thermal power plants (oil or gas-fired), waste-to-energy conversion plants or co-generation from biomass. LAB optimizes and improves the energy and environmental performance of such plants. Its various solutions are designed to reduce operating costs, increase plant availability and extend the working life of the equipment.
Our R&D quickly materialises into reliable, high-performance products, and two-thirds of the patents that we file each year are exploited immediately. Our experimentation resources mean that we can test our solutions on the spot at our clients’ sites.
