Caloric to build incinerator with HCl recovery in Poland

Gerald Ondrey

Caloric Anlagenbau GmbH (Gräfelfing, Germany; has been awarded a contract for the engineering and manufacturing of a new thermal treatment plant with an integrated HCl recovery unit from a major chemical company in Poland. The thermal treatment unit is part of a new chemical production unit, which is co-funded by the European Union. The plant is designed to treat about 2.8 ton/h of chlorinated waste gas. Within the process high purity hydrochloric acid of 34 wt.% is produced. The new production unit plant is scheduled to be on-stream in Q3/2015.

Beside the celebration of the 100th incinerator for Caloric it will be the first incineration unit installed in Eastern Europe, which is expected to become a promising market.

Starting in the 1970s with the incineration of organic wastes and later on expanding by sulfur and nitrogen containing wastes, Caloric is now one of the world's leading companies in the treatment of halogenated wastes including acid recovery.
