Case Study: GORE® REMEDIA® Catalytic Filter Bags – Municipal Solid Waste Incineration, Nishitama Eisei Kumiai, Hamura City, Tokyo, Japan


A municipal solid waste incineration plant in Hamura, Tokyo, was using powder-activated carbon injection to control dioxin/ furan emission. The plant management needed a solution to two simultaneous challenges: Increasing the facility’s waste incineration capacity by 14 % while mitigating the surrounding neighborhood’s concerns of high dioxin/furan emission.
