VOC Control Case Studies

    Case studies, news, and blog posts regarding VOC control systems, recent oxidizer projects, technologies, maintenance and support.


    Controlling Fugitive Emissions

    Fugitive emissions, in their simplest form, are the uncontrolled release of gases to the atmosphere. Each one of us may contribute fugitive emissions when we fill our automobile gas tanks. The displacement of air inside the gas tank causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit out the fill spout (un-controlled) to the atmosphere. Some states require the use of "Vapor Recovery" nozzles which capture the vapor emissions, returning them to the underground gasoline tanks. The vapors then become liquid again, reducing the "loss" of gasoline, as well as removing hydrocarbons from the air, which means less air pollution.

    CPI Installs Catalytic Oxidizer at Western USA Bakery

    Catalytic Products International (CPI) installed a Catalytic Oxidizer (CatOx) at a Western USA bakery for the abatement of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The primary source of emissions at a commercial bakery is the oven, which produces Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as ethanol and carbon dioxide from the release of compounds formed in the yeast fermentation process.
