As the full effect of 1990’s Federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many manufacturing operations have become subject to stricter local, state and federal clean air regulations. Both VOC (volatile organic compound) and HAP (hazardous air pollutant) emissions are strictly regulated since they lead to the formation of ground-level ozone (or smog). The CAA singled out 188 air pollutants that are of special concern, many of which are used every day in production and/or manufacturing atmospheres. Depending upon the quantity of VOCs and/or HAPs involved, many businesses either have or will be required by local, state or federal laws to install new or additional air pollution control equipment. With well over 25 years of proven success in various industries, both catalytic and thermal oxidation have become popular methods for controlling these VOC and/or HAP emissions.
Catalytic and thermal oxidation systems destroy the harmful VOCs and HAPs emitted from a manufacturing process by collecting the emissions and destroying them using elevated temperature and/or an industrial grade catalyst. Both catalytic and thermal oxidation assure thorough VOC and/or HAP destruction.
