  • Case study - Cumene plant

    Overview An East Coast chemical plant that manufactures phenol, acetone and alphametyl styrene from cumene planned to install an air pollution control system to control the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during their chemical production process. Phenol is consumed internally as an intermediate chemical while acetone and alphametyl styrene are sold off. Once the chemicals are ...

  • VOC Abatement Technology Saves on Operating Costs for Aerospace Paint Finishing

    For over 10 years, a Canadian aircraft manufacturer has saved over $500,000 annually in fuel and electricity consumption by using Munters rotor concentrators to control solvent emissions from its facility’s paint booths. Before purchasing Munters equipment in 2002, the manufacturer struggled with the inconvenience of having their aircraft systems flown to be painted in subcontracted paint ...

  • 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 ...

  • Put energy into emission control projects

    Many companies feel pressured to spend the least amount possible to meet environmental regulations, primarily because compliance isn’t a profit generating endeavor. What some environmental and compliance managers fail to realize is that emission control equipment can quickly become a profit decreasing endeavor with this penny wise-pound foolish approach. With mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • Investigation of the effects of temperature and sludge characteristics on odors and VOC emissions during the drying process of sewage sludge

    Sludge drying is a necessary step for sludge disposal. In this study, sludge was collected from two wastewater treatment plants, and dried at different temperatures in the laboratory. The emission of odor and total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) during the sludge drying process were determined by an online odor monitoring system. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in off-gas were analyzed ...
