Free chlorine is sometimes also released during such oxidation process. SO2 will be produced when sulphur-containing VOCs are oxidized. NOx may also appear in the combustion gases, if the pollutants contain N or as a result of the oxidation of nitrogen present in the air used for combustion, above all at high temperatures. Introduction to Air Pollution 15 Besides the amount of available oxygen, three other key factors allow optimization of the oxidation process, namely, temperature, time and turbulence.
