A no waste integrated desulphurization is proposed using existing adsorbents, but adapting the technology and ensuring adequate regeneration. Application of the process is envisaged in biomass/organic waste/mixed waste treatment with a combination of gasification/smelting. Spent adsorbent can therefore be treated in a smelter and regarded as a base material or fuel. The project studies available absorbents with emphasis on regeneration in the laboratory, constructs a pilot unit for use in a bypass on an existing smelter and checks the performance of the test unit. Finally a design of a commercial ly sized unit will be made. In addition extension of the market to other areas will be looked into.
