Air Phaser Environment Ltd. (APE) is a cleantech company focusing on the supply of our patented non-thermal plasma (NTP) technology to provide a cost effective, efficient, user-friendly and reliable solution for industrial odor and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) control, who typically have large volume, odorous air emissions. We supply large scale, cold plasma based abatement systems to treat odorous air emissions from industrial facilities engaged in processing animal, plant and related bio-materials, such as seafood, pet food production, municipal solid waste (MSW, or city garbage collection), composting of MSW and sewage sludge treatment and other facilities processing or handling organic waste or odorous materials.
Air Phaser is designed to oxidize and/or reduce air-borne pollutants, typically classified as Volitile Organic Compounds (VOC's) that need to be transformed to environmentally benign forms. These VOC's also may or may not be odorous and are typically emitted by large scale industries as a result of their operations. Air Phaser's technology transforms these VOC's to safe, non-hazardous and non-odorous compounds and it does this using only electricity.
Air Phaser is effective on emission volumes that range from a few hundred up to hundreds of thousands cubic feet of air per minute (CFM). VOC's that Air Phaser technology is effective on include those emitted by the automotive industry in their painting operations in manufacturing new cars. Other metal cleaning and solvents can be treated with Air Phaser systems as well.
VOC's that are more odorous rather than environmentally objectionable can also be treated by Air Phaser systems before being released into the environment. These include odorous air emissions resulting from industrial processes such as waste handling and compost odors, oil and water based drying air resulting from food and/or animal products processing, sewage treatment and all other types of organic manufacturing and/or handling processes.
The VOC's are transformed into harmless H2O and CO2 . Other compounds, such as H2S and other gas phase pollutants and odors are also oxidized and/or reduced by the system so that they are harmless and inoffensive.
The 3rd generation “Non Thermal Plasma” (NTP) technology incorporates a patent pending, high energy electrical NTP field with an integral catalyst system. This electrically energetic design is able to disrupt ionic and covalent bonding in the VOC compounds in large air volumes passing through the field, facilitating the oxidation with equally ionized and dissociated reactive oxygen species which results in the conversion of the VOC's into harmless oxidized compounds.
The system can treat air volumes from 50 to over 1,000,000 cfm using only a modest amount of electricity. The system is fault tolerant, since units are placed in parallel on larger systems and no single or even multiple unit shutdown's affect the whole treatment system. It is also extremely efficient as the electrical usage costs are far less than any alternate process that uses fuel or chemicals.
A compact size and the option for custom cabinet design permits retrofitting to existing processes, with an attractive ROI when operational savings is compared.
