Catalytic converters are not just for engines
They are also an effective technology to reduce fumes emitted from foodstuffs during cooking, and those resulting from the combustion of biomass, which is often used to heat buildings, water or to generate electricity. Catalytic converters can reduce emissions from rapid-cook ovens, charcoal ovens, wood stoves and boilers. The pollutants which can be reduced include carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter and oxides of nitrogen.
Installing a catalytic converter in your ventless ovens will ensure they can be certified within the USA, while wood stove manufacturers can differentiate their product range and gain approval under the EU’s Ecodesign Directive. Our Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) converters and dosing systems support emissions compliance for larger scale Biomass plants.
Opportunities for application
Control cooking fumes to improve air quality and ensure compliance with environmental and health & safety regulations
Solid Fuel Cooking
Charcoal, Tandoori and Wood-Fired ovens use is increasing, so safety and air quality compliance is paramount where used.
Domestic Biomass Combustion
Integrating catalytic converters into wood stoves will assist in meeting the EU’s Ecodesign Directive, effective 2022
Large-scale Biomass Combustion
With complex emission factors to consider at scale, a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system can reduce NOx by 90%
