    Ethylene Oxide Sterilization - Air Pollution Control Options

    Ethylene oxide (EtO) is a flammable, colorless gas used as an agent to sterilize equipment and plastic devices that cannot be sterilized by steam, such as healthcare devices and instruments.   Ethylene oxide is also used to make other chemicals that produce many everyday products including plastics, textiles, adhesives, detergents and cosmetics.

    Case Study: Odor Abatement Solutions

    Odor issues related to industrial processes are not uncommon.  An odor is caused by one or more volatilized organic compounds (VOCs) that humans can perceive by the sense of smell.  The challenge is that “odor is subjective, and what is sweet to some, can be a nuisance to others.   In most cases the compounds that create the offensive odors are not present in sufficient concentrations to present a health threat, however they can diminish the quality of life of those exposed to them by their offensive nature.

    Drum Manufacturing and Reconditioning VOC Control

    One of the most common methods of transporting bulk cargo is a cylindrical container known as a drum, also referred to as a barrel.  These drums are used to transport thousands of different cargo including industrial chemicals, acids (and other corrosives), oils, solvents, paints, resins, adhesives and soaps.  Painted steel drums and drums made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), typically called poly, or plastic drums, are used most often to transport and store such cargo.

    Railcar Painting & Surface Coating VOC Control


    Trains and locomotive railcars operate in harsh environments which degrade the exterior paint and protective finish over time.  For the interior of the tank and hopper cars, the linings must provide protection from highly corrosive cargo which can lead to heavy corrosion and premature coating failure.  These vessels require durable and long-lasting finishes as varying weather and cargo can strip away these protective coatings.

    Flavoring & Fragrance Manufacturing Solutions for VOC and Odor Control


    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and odors are natural by-products of many chemical manufacturing processes. The manufacturing of powdered and liquid flavorings & fragrances involves production phases where VOCs and odors can escape into the ambient air.  Recapture of the VOCs is important in the prevention of air pollution and smog.  Smog is formed when VOCs react with nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the presence of sunlight. The reaction forms ground level ozone, airborne particulates, and some other pollution. FLavor and Fragrance.jpg

    Ozone has been selected as the standard to measure ground level pollution, a precursor under EPA’s criteria pollutant program.  Areas of the country that have ozone readings above EPA guidelines are ruled nonattainment areas and have stricter regulations for VOC, CO, and NOx emissions. This proves that although the compounds that create offensive odors may not be present in sufficient concentrations to present a health risk, they can diminish the quality of life for the community surrounding the manufacturing process.
