Wood-based materials are produced by shredding the wood and then joining the structural elements. The end product and its properties depend on the source material, size, and dimensions of the wood particles.
During the processing and production of wood pellets (wood chip drying), cardboard and panelboard products - such as plywood, particleboard and oriented-strandboard (OSB) VOC as well as condensates of tar are released into the waste gas stream from the drying process. Treatment typically consists of a wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP) to control the dust and particulate emissions in combination with Dürr LTB Ecopure® RTO regenerative thermal oxidiser technology to control the emissions of VOC.
Here, energy consumption is also minimised and operational reliability assured.
Similar pollutant emissions are generated from the presses where the boards and doors are manufactured.
