  • Case study - Solid waste gasification pollution abatement

    Catalytic Products International has partnered with a Gasification System Designer in the design and supply of a unique thermal oxidizer for use with a closed loop batch pyrolysis gasification system. The gasifier is engineered to create a clean combustible syngas from a broad spectrum of dissimilar carbonbased solids, liquids, and other feedstocks. The QUADRANT NR – SEVERE DUTY Thermal ...

  • Preventative Maintenance Solutions for Air Pollution Control

    Production output and cost control can be difficult to obtain consistently in any manufacturing operation.  In this white paper, we describe one facility’s experience with installing and maintaining a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) control system. This is a typical example of how a preventive maintenance plan can ensure the control system operates with 100 percent reliability, how ...

  • Biofilter Applications in the Coatings Industry.

    Soaring energy costs and the high cost of ‘end-of-pipe’ pollution control equipment has caused companies and regulatory agencies to re-evaluate ‘unconventional’ means of achieving VOC and HAP emissions control. The coatings industry is an excellent candidate for alternative, unconventional controls, as VOC and HAP reductions have not been as strident as has been the case in many other industries. ...


  • Case study - Amine tail gas treatment

    COVERING YOUR TAIL GAS The discovery of new shale formations throughout the world and the development of new drilling technologies have increased natural gas production and prompted government agencies to instigate tighter air-pollutioncontrol regulations on processing operations. Unfortunately, meeting environmental regulations is not a profit-generating endeavor. Simply put, the time ...

  • Maintenance solutions for air pollution control equipment

    Manufacturing facilities are constantly under pressure to meet production forecasts at the lowest possible cost. These two goals; production output and cost control, can be difficult to obtain consistently in any manufacturing operation. Additional frustration to meet these goals can be exaggerated in today’s lean manufacturing climates that have trimmed budgets and reduced workforce. ...

  • Case study - Keeping ethanol production green

    OVERVIEW Originally published in Pollution Engineering Magazine. In an effort to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, there has been a major push towards alternatives. Ethanol has been at the forefront of this movement because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and its production has a positive net energy balance. The homegrown fuel also ...

  • Case study - Kiln emission control technologies

    Overview A specialty ceramic material manufacturer in the United States operates several custom-built furnaces in their manufacturing process.  Sometimes referred to as kilns, these high-temperature process devices are generally a major source of air pollutants and require an abatement technology to meet environmental regulations with the state or federal agencies.  As is the ...

  • Emission Control Strategies and Technologies for the Chemical Processing Industry: An interview with Chris Anguil

    AC: Could you please provide our readers with a brief introduction to the industries that Anguil Environmental works within? CA: Our thermal and catalytic oxidizer systems are applied on any industrial process that is regulated for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) or Nitrogen Oxides (NOX). Some of these industries include chemical ...

  • Case study - Coil coater asks...`What carbon footprint?`

    Overview Our planet is getting warmer. At what rate it is occurring or how much human activity has to do with the increasing temperatures is a heated debate. One thing we do know for sure is that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a contributing factor in global warming and humans are responsible for a large portion of these emissions. These days, many individuals and businesses alike are trying ...

  • What carbon footprint? Asks Corus

    Problem In case you haven’t heard, our planet is getting warmer. At what rate it is occurring or how much human activity has to do with the increasing temperatures is a heated debate, pardon the pun. One thing we do know for sure…carbon dioxide (CO2) is a contributing factor in global warming and humans are responsible for a large portion of these emissions. If you had asked ...
