The manufacture of fertilisers produces waste gases. The flue gas contains sulphur dioxide, which is washed out in a flue gas scrubber by means of a complicated washing process with several spray levels. Onshore scrubbers are used in this process.
The engineering firm from California commissioned BUTTING in Canada for the first time to supply these scrubbers, and their production was taken over by BUTTING Anlagenbau in Schwedt. With a total volume of 120 metric tons, this commission is one of the largest projects produced by BUTTING Anlagenbau for the Canadians. Markus Hahn, Managing Director of BUTTING in Canada, reports that "in addition to producing the scrubbers, BUTTING Anlagenbau was also involved in the design of the components. This allows us to demonstrate our diverse skills yet again." Delivery is planned for September 2021.
Marcel Bartels, Managing Director of BUTTING International, is visibly satisfied: "Increasing the range and depth of services through the various locations of the BUTTING Group offers our customers significant efficiency advantages." He adds: "We are proud to be able to make a contribution to reducing environmental pollution with products such as these scrubbers and, consequently, to achieving a better quality of life for everyone."
