Tecam wins three new environmental technology projects for gas emissions treatment in The Netherlands

Tecam, a leading supplier of environmental technology, announces that it has been awarded 3 new projects for the removal of gases emissions derived from the venting processes generated at very relevant and technically leader industrial sectors in central Europe.

Under the terms of these agreements, Tecam will supply these companies with 3 systems of Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO), which are expected to eliminate 99.9% of the polluting gas venting emissions at the industrial sites where they will be installed.

A short overview of some technical details of each project:

  • Project 1: design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning of a Flameless Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) package, Quench, Scrubber and auxiliary equipment, with a capacity of up to 2,500 Nm3/h of polluted gases.
  • Project 2: design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning of a Flameless Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) package with 4,500 Nm3/h capacity.
  • Project 3: design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning of a package for gas treatment by means of TO (Thermal Oxidizer) technology. Subsequently, a treatment will be carried out to eliminate NOx (nitrogen oxides) and then a treatment with Quench + Scrubbers to eliminate acid gases (bromine compounds).

The above-mentioned systems will be installed, respectively, at bulk liquid tank terminals (Projects 1 and 2), and at a new plant focused on the production of renewable polymers by using a novel project that will be constructed, on this case, at an industrial scale (Project 3 ).

Although the type of plants where these TECAM solutions will be installed may be different, they both represent leadership on new technologies seeking renewable strategies and circular economy being followed, and the solution from TECAM is fit-for-purpose.

The technology provided by TECAM consists basically on the collection of streams from vents so that they are conducted to a dedicated common treatment plant. Vents from different sources, also with different flowrates and pollutant compositions can be treated in the same pollutant abatement system.

Taking into account the polluting emissions that must be eliminated in tank storage and many other industrial sectors, even more if the most up-to-date Best Available Techniques have to be implemented, Thermal Oxidation technology represents one of the most suitable and cost-effective (from capital and operational costs perspective) option to guarantee polluting emissions elimination in this sector, if the most recent and conservative emissions limits are those to be met.

The RTO solution is getting more and more common in industrial sectors. Moreover it fully complies with BREF recommendations and is specifically mentioned as one of the Best Available Techniques defined by the European Commission within the framework of Directive 2010/75 on industrial emissions and pollution control.

“The recent award of these 3 key projects for gas venting emissions removal shows our commitment with different industrial sectors that constitute leadership on technology, renewable and circular economy strategies, and how Tecam can support the industry with eliminating their gas venting emissions” Tecam CEO Bernat Sala declared. “Environmental technology has proven to be profitable for companies while allowing them to adapt to the strictest environmental legislation. We are at a decisive moment at an environmental level and must take action now”.

By eliminating high concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Thermal Oxidation technology allows to minimize the concentrations of VOCs emitted into the atmosphere, and at its turn comply with all current and most restrictive regulations at an international level.

Thanks to the elimination of 99.9% of gas emissions derived from their production processes, these 3 industrial sites in The Netherlands are soon becoming places with the highest standards of safety, quality and respect for the environment.
