deDioxin and deFuran : GORE® REMEDIA® Catalytic Filter Bags

Technology / Service Summary

GORE® REMEDIA® Catalytic Filter Bags remove dioxins and furans (< 0.1ng/m3), provide dust control and work with existing baghouses in a variety of applications.


for Dioxin and Furan reduction


The GORE Membrane captures fine particulate on the surface of the filter.
As the filter is cleaned, solids are released from the surface and collected in the bottom of the baghouse hopper.
The gaseous dioxins and furans pass through the Membrane into the catalytic felt. The catalyst instantly reacts with the dioxin and furan molecules to convert them into insignificant amounts of CO2, H2O and HCl.
And this will be an alternatives to powdered activated carbon or SCR.


# Destroy gaseous dioxins.
Unlike sorbent based systems such as powdered activated carbon (PAC), GORE REMEDIA Filter Bags do not merely remove dioxin and furan molecules from the gas stream to the solid residue stream, they destroy them. They use a high-performing, state-of-the-art catalysts to assure long life and levels of destruction that in many cases exceed 99 percent.

# Lowest Total Cost of Ownership.
By combining dioxin destruction and particulate control into one passive filter, GORE REMEDIA Filter Bags provide low total cost of ownership. Made of catalyst/PTFE fibers, they have high mechanical strength and durability coupled with a proven long life catalyst, effectively assuring savings well into the future. Because it doesn't add to your operating costs, there are no hidden costs after the system is purchased.

# Lower disposal costs.
With no dioxin contaminated sorbents to dispose of, GORE REMEDIA Filter Bags minimize the cost of hazardous waste disposal. They address concerns about existing or future landfill restrictions on the amount and toxicity of sorbent levels in fly ash. Reducing hazardous waste disposal also demonstrates your company's commitment to environmental protection.

# No Need to Purchase New Equipment.
No new capital equipment is required. GORE REMEDIA Catalytic Filter Bags simply replace your current filters in your current baghouse so you can optimize your existing assets. In addition, no new equipment means there is no need to change your current process or add new maintenance requirements.

# Passive System - No Maintenance.
Gore's catalytic filter system is completely passive in operation, continuously destroying gaseous dioxins and furans while in operation. With no additional equipment to operate, ongoing maintenance demands are kept to a minimum.

# Provide Dust Control.
The microporous structure of the GORE Membrane filters dust, even submicron particles. By capturing fine particles it reduces total emissions of toxins, such as trace heavy metals to the atmosphere.

# Uses Existing Facility Footprint.
With no new equipment to buy, there are also no new demands on your existing facility footprint. Injection equipment, storage silos, catalytic towers, heat exchangers, etc., all require additional space and related construction. By utilizing your existing baghouse, GORE REMEDIA Filter Bags make compliance easy and affordable.

# Reduce Corrosion.
The lower operating temperatures required with other dioxin control systems can cause corrosion in your baghouse. Since GORE REMEDIA Catalytic Filter Bags work at higher temperatures, there is less chance of corrosion.

# Safer for Employees.
Carbon-based systems create a risk of baghouse fires. Hazardous carbon dust also puts operators at risk, especially when it is contaminated with dioxin. With GORE REMEDIA Filter Bags, avoiding carbon eliminates the risk of fires and minimizes potential health risks
