Incorporating a desktop review of all available electronic files and documentation provided by HPAB in relation to the proposed equine bedding recycling facility operations. This included specification sheets and quotations provided by equipment vendors. Development of mass and energy balances, review and quantify the air and water emissions, plus verification of the connected components. Amec Foster Wheeler based on the assessment of the facilities proposed equipment and process stages conclude:
• The HPAB Equipment is sufficiently sized to handle the require volume throughput
• The HPAB dryer system, when using an indirect fired burner, can reduce emissions compared to rotary dryers that are vented to the atmosphere
• There should be operational and energy efficiency improvements for the proposed system as compared to other conventional dryer technologies
• There are no chemicals used in the separation and drying process of HPAB
