ABSTRACT
The article discusses the emission control system for hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and thermal oxidizer system applied in chemical process industry. It says that HAPs and VOCs could help in disposing environmental hazardous waste effectively. It states that thermal oxidizer system was the most cost effective path to expand production while settling new emission controls requirements.
