  • EnviroVantage-experts in asbestos abatement

    Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring minerals with long, thin fibrous crystals. It was sometimes referred to as the 'miracle mineral' because of its beneficial properties such as insulation and fire protection. In the U.S., chrysotile has been the type of asbestos used most commonly. Its long fibers are often found in a wide variety of materials such as vinyl floor tiles, mastic, sheetrock, ...

  • Case study - Landfill waste gas abatement

    For over 43 years Catalytic Products International has designed and manufactured specialized oxidation systems for use in controlling process-related VOC emissions. The QUADRANT-NRV Series Thermal Oxidation System is designed for use with the low-volume/high-BTU waste gas stream emitted from many landfill gas purification processes. As we utilize our Venturi Burner Package to process the waste ...

  • Case study - Biogas desulfurization and siloxanes abatement

    MCFC project by CETAGUA (Mataró – Spain) Reducing the carbon footprint of our society is imperative. This can be achieved by capturing and confining anthropogenic CO2 emissions as well as by replacing fossil-based fuels with renewable or waste-derived fuels. MCFCs (Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells) are unique in being able to do both these things. Thanks to their operating ...

  • Case study - Engine cell exhaust: Catalytic oxidizer

    Overview Endurance testing of outboard motors for boats has typically been done in lakes and sometimes on barges. This testing was time consuming, presented logistic problems and removed the testing from the R & D department and the factory. When a company in Oklahoma decided to build their own endurance test cell area, the Environmental Protection Agency required them to control the ...

  • EIS Safety First - Case Study

    EIS was invited by a UK company to provide a fully automated VOC / odour abatement system treating the exhausts from multiple processes and needing multiple safety systems.  The abatement plant would be part of the construction of a new factory based in Scotland, so the timing and installation of the system would be critical to the plant coming on stream at the planned date. The production ...

  • Strategies for controlling pollution from vehicular emissions in Beijing

    Beijing is one of the most polluted cities in the world, which is caused by surprising vehicular growth in the past decade. This paper describes the severe situation of vehicular emission pollution in Beijing, and discusses the following strategies for mitigation: improving fuel quality, controlling the exhaust from new vehicles, controlling the emissions from vehicles in use through, e.g., ...

  • Controlling Pharmaceutical Coating & Drying Process Emissions

    Capturing and destroying harmful emissions from pharmaceutical processes can be challenging. It’s not because the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are difficult to destroy using catalytic or thermal techniques. It’s because their concentrations can be so high. These process streams raise safety concerns, both when they’re collected in vents and when they reach the final ...

  • Field Experience And Laboratory Analysis of Oxidation Catalyst on Dual Fuel Engines

    Oxidizer case histories in the pharmaceutical industry The pharmaceutical industry faces unique challenges in complying with environmental pollution and emission control regulations. Three pharmaceutical process case studies are examined: fluidized bed drying, tablet coating and reaction vessels, and batch operations. Recently, a contract drug manufacturing company faced violation ...

  • IRGAS XFlo: process gas FTIR system for flange mounted applications

    Introduction When doing process tool or exhaust abatement tool installations, it is desirable to monitor the exhaust gases as a means of controlling or setting up the tool 1, 2. FTIR, with its rapid analysis speed, high sensitivity, and ease of use, offers one means of monitoring such systems at the time of installation and during the working life of the tool. Often, these applications ...

  • Modelling energy system using three-dimensional input-output analysis

    Input-output (I-O) analysis is frequently applied to the energy-environmental area, because not only the direct but also the indirect environmental repercussions of different patterns of final demand can be explored. I-O analysis has a structural deficiency in evaluating the system, including the production of by-products, since joint production is not assumed to appear in the theory of I-O ...
