In connection with the increasingly severe environment regulation, VOEST-ALPINE
Industrieanlagenbau (VAI) has developed the WETFINE system, which allows to reduce the
emissions from sinter, pellet, waste incineration plants, etc. to previously unattained levels. The key
element of this system, a wet electrostatic precipitator, removes not only fine dust particles from the
offgas stream, but also dioxin and furan, as well as SO3 compounds.
