Greenlime MethodGREENLIME method is based on dry, semi-dry multiple injection in industrial flue gas ducts of specialized sorbent material. GREENLIME particles, designed with special characteristics, are injected in a duct where in counter flow with flue gas absorb and mitigate gas pollutants (SOx, NOx, HF, Hg). Then these particles are collected from the environmental technology (Bag filters, ESP’s) and they can be removed as byproducts with commercial value, in dry form or can be recycled until the sorbent ability is saturated. In some cases where the dry method is not satisfactory, then GREENLIME system can be converted in semi-dry adding specialized systems of water mist with extra additives, aiming to accelerate the kinetics and to approach the adiabatic saturation temperature for optimization. Moreover, due to the variable implementation of the temperature range of the different GREENLIME products, they can be injected simultaneously at several points for multiple reduction when concentration of pollutants is high.
CaO Hellas is the largest group of companies in Greece and the Balkans specialized in the production of lime and other chemical products based on lime. The group is consisted of 4 plants manufacturing chemical and building lime products and many lime mortar production facilities. The range of products is wide, with various industrial and chemical uses. The new facility of CaO Hellas in Amyndaio Florina, in collaboration with multinational companies, have generated the new product range GREENLIME, which is for environmental uses such as desulfurization and denitrification of emmisions and the mitigation of harmful pollutants such as Cl and Hg.
