The Topsoe tertiary process then raises the cost-effectiveness bar even higher by using TertiNOx™ to help you save money, while reducing N2O emissions by as much as 99%.
When deployed in the tail gas treating unit, TertiNOx™ will help you achieve significant savings from the market for CO2 equivalents. At the same time, your nitric acid operations will benefit from:
- Low pressure drop
- Higher throughput
- Larger volumes of steam
- More effective expander duty
Another big practical benefit is that you can install the Topsoe monolith solution in your existing reactor, or switch to a smaller, simpler reactor design.
A unique advantage to the Topsoe monolith is its low pressure drop, which enables you to use a polisher setup combined with secondary N2O abatement.
Secondary N2O abatement normally has a maximum efficiency of 80%, leaving behind significant N2O emissions – with an associated CO2 price. This is why the Topsoe TertiNOx™ solution can be used as a N2O polisher to reduce N2O emissions even further, which also reduces your costs for CO2 equivalents.
