Abstract There are many types of thermal oxidizers used in the oil and gas refining industry. This analysis will focus on thermal oxidizer applications that contain large quantities of inert gases contaminated with CO, hydrocarbons, and sulfur species. Thermal oxidizers generate CO2 in the process of destroying hazardous air pollutants (HAP), volatile organic compounds (VOC), and carbon monoxide. The fuel used in the thermal oxidizer burner is also a significant source of CO2 emissions. This analysis will evaluate methods to reduce CO2 emissions by selecting thermal oxidizer operating conditions (such as temperature and excess oxygen levels) and thermal oxidizer system configurations (such as direct fired systems, recuperative systems, and regenerative systems). Practical aspects and limitations of operating conditions and system configurations will also be evaluated relative to CO2 emission reductions.
