Renewable energy plants are expanding and being developed at a significant rate in North America and throughout the world. In the United States, the Clean Air Act for reformulated gasoline (RFG) mandates a 2wt.% oxygen requirement, driving the demand for more production. Ethanol is the most viable additive because it is a clean-burning fuel produced from renewable, domestic biomass sources. However, the production of these fuels can result in unacceptable levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon...
Environmental regulations for air pollution cotrol 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 aluminum cans, light metal containers, closures and components.
As is the case for many industrial manufacturing processes, emissions are best destroyed through the use of thermal and catalytic oxidation technologies. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are destroyed through the use of high temperature combustion with direct heat recovery. The harmful air pollutants are converted to heat, water vapor and carbon dioxide, creating a destruction efficiency greater than 99%.
Chemical product manufacturing involves the handling of acids, carcinogenic and toxic chemicals, along with the emission of fumes that contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and particulates.
More and more cities see an increase of air pollution caused by fine dust and hazardous PM10 and PM2.5 particulates. Our DISA-CLEAN is a street & area sweeper that efficiently uses high-powered vacuum technology to permanently remove dirt, dust, and PM10 and PM2.5 particulates. DISA-CLEAN is a dust-free alternative to conventional street sweepers but with no water needed to suppress dust.
The engineered wood products industry relies on Dürr Megtec for regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO), regenerative catalytic oxidizer (RCO), wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP), dry electrostatic precipitator (DESP), and wet scrubber technologies for effective emissions control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), particulate matter (PM), and blue haze from wood dryers and press vents. As an industry leader, we offer a comprehensive suite of advanced air pollution control...
Gradko’s ambient air monitoring equipment is widely used to monitor both indoor and outdoor air quality. Continuous development allows us to provide equipment for a broad range of applications, covering short-term and long-term monitoring. Pollutants can be detected even at very low levels – limits of detection are typically in the low parts per billion (ppb) range.
Air Stripping is the transferring of volatile components of a liquid into an air stream. This process is used for the purification of groundwater and wastewater containing volatile compounds. Air Strippers are usually packed towers operated with a countercurrent flow of water and air. The design for Air Strippers involves a packed tower which includes plastic random packing it its design. The size of the packed tower and plastic random packing is determined by the air to water flow rates. Since many of the...
A Single Solution To Manage Composite Odors: Many resins used in the composite industry emit styrene vapors which are considered hazardous in high concentrations and whose odor is an unpleasant nuisance. This gas is categorized as a volatile organic compound (VOC) and listed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) as a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP). Styrene is considered highly reactive in the atmosphere and may contribute to smog formation and the production of secondary air pollutants.
ALUMINUM INDUSTRY: Performed a range of test measurements required by the promulgation of the Secondary Aluminum MACT standards. Testing included measurements of Hazardous Air Pollutants for establishing Area vs. Major Source Determinations, as well as dioxin/furan compounds associated with chlorine emissions from fluxing operations.
VIM Technologies, Inc. has been working with petrochemical and refining customers since 1995. We have continued to experience market share in this industry over the years and are working together with key industry leaders.
The Wercs has developed an online reporting module which enables manufacturers to completely eliminate the manual system that is in place for VOC/HAPs reporting. This new module automatically gathers VOC/HAPs data from SDSs and cross-references it with the order history. Your customers can now go to a secured website, enter the name of the product and get a complete VOC/HAPs emission analysis for annual reporting requirements.
