Innovative Air Pollution Control Solutions for Industry


Anguil Environmental Systems, Inc. is an air pollution control and energy recovery system provider headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A. with offices in the United Kingdom, Asia and an extensive network of agents located domestically and throughout the world.

Over the past thirty years, Anguil Environmental has developed a breadth of abatement technologies that control harmful and regulated Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), process odors and Nitrous Oxides (NOX). The result is over 1,700 installations around the world encompassing a wide range of applications and technology solutions. This experience provides Anguil with the confidence to assess and resolve most air pollution issues. There is hardly an emission process we haven't successfully resolved.

Anguil's first installations in the 1970's consisted mainly of recuperative catalytic oxidizers. The success of those projects led to the development of partnerships with the world's leading catalyst suppliers, and eventually, other technology partners. The result is today's innovative technology options that include a complete range of advanced thermal and catalytic oxidizers, vapor combustors, emission concentrator systems, scrubbers and varying types of heat recovery options.

The company's ability to provide multiple abatement technologies places them in a position to select the correct technology to fit each project.  Potential customers can expect an unbiased equipment selection based on the destruction requirements, efficiency needs and process parameters.  The solution will include a turnkey system that seamlessly integrates into the specific process, providing customers with single source responsibility.

Company Background

Founded in 1978 by Gene Anguil, Anguil Environmental initially specialized in energy recovery systems. Utilizing the company's experience in air handling, energy control and chemistry, Anguil began successfully designing and fabricating a popular catalytic pollution control system. Using this formula for identifying and executing solutions, the company evolved into a provider  of numerous oxidizer technologies for various air pollution control applications.

In 2008, at a party celebrating the Anguil's 30th year in business, Gene announced that the company would begin its' transition to the second generation.  He became the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and handed many of his responsibilities over to the next generation, namely Chris and Deb Anguil.   

Chris Anguil, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at that time, became the President of the organization.  In this capacity he is responsible for both, the top line or revenue as well as the bottom line or profit.       

Deb Anguil, serving as Vice President of Operations, transitioned into Chief Operating Officer (COO).  In this capacity she maintained her responsibility of meeting customer expectations while also focusing on product improvement and overall efficiency within the company to improve profitability.

Anguil - Model VCU - Vapor Combustor Unit

Thermal flaring technologies used for the destruction of Hydrocarbons, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are designed in two basic configurations; open and enclosed flame burners.  Recent regulations on visible emissions, vapor radiation, Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and noise pollution have driven industry away from open flaring and towards the enclosed vapor combustion system.

Anguil - Model RTO - Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

The Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) destroys Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and odorous emissions that are often discharged from industrial or manufacturing processes. Anguil RTOs achieve emission destruction through the process of high temperature thermal oxidation, using the proper mix of temperature, residence time, turbulence and oxygen to convert pollutants into carbon dioxide and water vapor.


Air pollution control for the metal decorating industry

Regenerative Thermal and Recuperative Oxidizers, Emission Concentrators, Permanent Total Enclosures (PTEs), Heat Recovery Systems. Environmental regulations for air pollution control at metal decorating and packaging facilities usually address can makers, base coil coaters, or metal parts and packaging manufacturers. Metal Decorating can be classified as any process where metal is formed, painted, or coated. Metal Packaging is generally considered processes involved in the production of light metal containers,...

Air pollution control for the natural gas processing industry

The natural gas industry has seen a significant increase in activity with the discovery of new shales and technologies throughout the world allowing for extraction of gases deeper in the earth. Historically, gas processing plants and Midstream facilities have used flares or other less-efficient oxidizer technologies for amine tail gas treatment, nitrogen rejection units and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) processes. These oxidizer technologies used are fairly effective for destruction, but they can consume a considerab...


General Oxidizer Service & Maintenance

Anguil has more than three decades of experience supplying the full range of oxidizer technologies and servicing thousands of oxidizers of all makes and models. In today's volatile market there are not many competitors that can make that claim. Indeed, quite a few of our service customers own oxidizers from manufacturers that just are not around anymore. Whether that is the case for you or not, establishing Anguil as a viable service provider can only ...

Preventive Maintenance Evaluation (PME) Services

Did you know that some air permits require oxidizer operators to have scheduled maintenance programs for their systems in order to remain in compliance with regulations? The Anguil PME is a thorough audit of a system's operation, covering multiple days and an extensive checklist. Upon completion, customers receive a detailed report with recommendations for improving performance, reliability, and safety.
