During spring of 2018 Hydro started up the new ambitious Karmøy Technology Pilot (KTP) with the aim to achieve significant step changes in the specific energy consumption and at the same time define new industry standards in environmental impacts to the atmosphere. These goals will require energy improvements and updated improved abatement solutions for of all aspects of the production including; a fully integrated updated Abart gas treatment center with dual duct systems for forced suction, anode cooling box suction, new integrated heat exchangers, the Alfeed alumina distribution, fluoride transport, and crushed bath mixing and transport.
The expected “Improvements on the Abart Gas Treatment and Alumina Handling at the Karmøy Technology Pilot” was presented at TMS 2018. This paper will review the final results and experiences after reaching stable operation with even lower emissions than targeted.
