Definitions for "RTO"
Regional Transmission Organization. An independent governing body that coordinates power generation and transmission within an integrated regional market. The RTO projects the hourly load requirements for the markets it serves, collects bids from generators, and dispatches plants to provide energy, reserve capacity and power regulation services. Based on the bids received, the RTO determines an hourly price for each service. The market-clearing price is charged to all net users of the service and paid to all net suppliers. The RTO also serves as a clearinghouse for payments between generators, utilities and end users.

Thermal Regenerative Oxidizers — An alternative method for VOCs removal involving the firing of natural gas into the flue gases in order to combust or thermally oxidize the VOCs into CO2, NOx, SOx, and H2O. Although for small gas flow applications, the thermal oxidation techniques may be of lower capital cost, they have the disadvantage of having a high operating cost due to their high fuel consumption required to destroy the VOCs.
