Volatile Organic Compounds VOC

Volatile Organic Compounds VOC emissions are currently issued into the atmosphere in a large number of production processes that use organic substances. Current EU and national legislations establish maximum VOC emission limits for the various production processes affected.

  • VOC emissions are one of the biggest environmental problems for many Industries nowadays
  • Global warming generated by VOC is 12 times higher than that produced by CO2
  • VOC emissions are regulated by EU Directive 1999/13/CE

Other Gases

Coal extraction requires forced ventilation in mine galleries to evacuate the methane toward the exterior to make air quality healthy for workers. That mine air contains large quantities of methane that must be treated before being issued into the atmosphere.
The best technology to treat VAM (Ventilation Air Methane) is Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO). The oxidation process is used to break down the CH4 into CO2, thus obtaining a performance of 99.9% methane destruction.
RTO technology allows taking advantage of the energy required for methane oxidation to perform cogeneration. Through heat exchangers energy is used to be transformed into steam, electricity or hot water.
