1. High temperature thermal N2O destruction - High temperature (T = 1200-1500 °C) combustion of KA off-gases in a low NOx natural gas or oil fired burner associated with a steam boiler
2. Catalytic N2O destruction – Low temperature decomposition of N2O in KA off-gases using a heterogeneous catalyst to avoid NOx formation (T = 400-800°C)
3. Thermal destruction of N2O with HNO3 recovery – High temperature (T = 1200-1500 °C) conversion of N2O in KA off-gases using a burner designed to maximize NOx generation
Three proven N2O abatement technology options are available for license:

N2O is a bi-product of both adipic acid and nitric acid manufacturing. One tonne of N2O is recognized as having the equivalent climate change effect of 310 tonnes of CO2. INVISTA has developed world class protocols to measure and verify N2O reduction projects in Canada, USA and the UK.
