Odor Control for Tank Cleaning

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

When It Comes To Odor Management, Simply Cleaning The Tank Isn’t Enough To Remove The Odors

Prior to cleaning, storage tanks are vented to the atmosphere in order to reduce the internal gas content to a level below its lower explosion limit (LEL). This permits safe worker access. During venting, odors escape into the atmosphere creating a nuisance to nearby residents, businesses, and employees. Furthermore, storage tank cleaning results in production downtime that reduces plant profitability.

Odor Control for Refining

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

You Refine The Fuel, We’ll Remove The Odors

Oil refineries and petrochemical plants may generate large volumes of odor from the processing and refining of different fuels. Sulfides, mercaptans, and hydrocarbon compounds are all closely related to the oil industry. The odors generated from these industrial compounds are of a high nuisance value and generally create concern among local air boards and the public.

algae control in drinking water plants

by LG Sonic     based in Zoetermeer, NETHERLANDS

By controlling algae, cyanobacteria and fouling LG Sonic can efficiently reduce taste and odor problems in a treatment plant. The performance of a drinking water treatment plant is consistent with the amount ol contamination in the water. Growth of algae and other fouling in and before a treatment plant can cause various problems within the process. In general, these issues are related with taste or odor of the water. Growth of algae, cyanobacteria and bacteria within the basins of the plant itself, increase the demand of chemicals or filtration and in turn creating problems with THM (trihalomethane) formation. Other common issues are growth of toxin and geosmin producing cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) within the intake reservoir or dam. These molecules give the water an unpleasant `earthy ` taste.

Hazardous waste treatment solutions for metal industry

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

Sludge by-products from the metalworking industry have a high potential for recycling. Prolonged grinding processes can generate large amounts of highly valuable, alloy-rich sludge; consisting of metal powder and cooling lubricants. Inside our VacuDry system, the thermal separation of the liquids (hydrocarbons, eventually water) and solids (metal powder) takes place in an oxygen free atmosphere. This absence of oxygen ultimately eliminates material degradation by oxidation, and self-ignition or explosion risks. Operation under a low vacuum ensures the possibility to recover the cooling lubricants for later reuse. After the thermal treatment, for appropriate handling in the melting process, the metal powder is pressed into briquettes. With the econ VacuDry technology, 100% recycling of all ingredients is possible.

Hazardous waste treatment solutions for site remediation

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake from the soil washing process. However, we are able to handle soil contaminated with mercury, hydrocarbons, PAH, PCB, dioxins, furans, organic-lead compounds and many more. VacuDry plants for on-site ex-situ remediation projects are delivered in a modular design.

Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

There are a wide amount of applications for our VacuDry® process within the oil and gas industry. A large variety of wastes and by-products that are generated in the oil & gas production chain can be treated effectively and sustainably. In past decades, numerous thermal desorption processes have been implemented worldwide, using a variety of heating chamber designs to separate hydrocarbons from the mineral solids. Such standard TDUs work under atmospheric pressure which can lead to safety risks, high energy consumption, larger emissions and limited flexibility regarding altering feed materials. Due to its unique design, the complications outlined above are avoided throughout the VacuDry® process. When it comes to treating standard oily wastes, mercury-containing waste streams, NORM, and especially for the recovery of highly valuable drilling fluids from drill cuttings; our vacuum thermal desorption process (i.e. vacuum distillation) is economically unbeatable.

NORM Waste

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

Natural Occurring Radioactive Material consists of materials enriched with radioactive elements found in the environment. They are usually brought to the surface by oil and gas exploration or mining. NORM wastes can be treated in a VacuDry® unit in order to prepare it for a safe sub earth disposal.

Drill Cuttings

by econ industries GmbH     based in Starnberg, GERMANY

Common drilling procedures for oil and gas, used widely around the world, produce a consistently increasing amount drill cuttings containing oil. In some cases, drill cuttings even contain other hazardous components such as mercury or NORM (Natural occurring Radioactive Material), requiring special attention. Treatment of drill cuttings is therefore beneficial from both an environmental and an economic standpoint, allowing valuable drilling oil to be recovered, and ensuring environmentally sound disposal of the drill cuttings. Our VacuDry® technology is designed to safely separate oil, water and mercury from the solids (including NORM), allowing reuse of the oil and safe disposal of the water, mercury, solids and NORM.
