ABSTRACT
The article discusses alternatives to regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) such as the bio-filter and the regenerative catalytic oxidizer (RCO) in the U.S. It notes that the application of RTO is too expensive though it is noted as the most energy-efficient control technology. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has promulgated the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) which allows the 90 percent emission reduction for hazardous air pollutants.
