The article discusses that regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) and direct fired thermal oxidizer / waste heat boiler have been considered as the technology solutions for the ethanol plant distiller's grain dryer emission control in the U.S. It is cited that a natural gas RTO has the possibility to have the highest efficiency, the lowest emissions, and a lower total installation cost. The parameters needed to evaluate the selection and design of an integrated air abatement system are offered.
