Based in Belgium, Lhoist is the world’s largest producer of lime-based products, with more than 6,000 employees and a turnover of €2.2bn. Globally, Lhoist is the largest supplier of hydrated lime used to remove pollutants from the flues of EfW plants.
Designers of new EfW plants are tasked with making them more efficient so that energy and water consumption reduce, while coping with more demanding emissions targets. Lhoist’s range of Sorbacal products deal with the main acidic gases which are found in EfW flues: sulphur dioxide, hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride. Subsequently this lowers flue gas treatment costs and creates fewer residues for disposal, regardless of variations in waste input quality.
