José Miguel González, engineering director at Tecam, explores the challenges and solutions of venting emissions.
In a world like today’s, with crisis, wars and materials stock shortages, it becomes crucial to define more conservative storage policies, while also implementing a higher level of environmental protection.
Especially at tank terminals, it is essential to have correct, safe exhaust air management to eliminate volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions generated during gas venting. These emissions usually happen during daily operations at tank terminals, such as filling and emptying tanks, connecting and disconnecting units, breathing, cleaning, draining, purging, etc. Recently there has been a shift in the demand of how companies want to heat up the oxidation chambers of their regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) systems for VOC emissions removal at production sites.
The trend has gone from burner-powered to electric-powered or to other forms of power, flameless, and there...
