Molly Cooper explores how the right vapour recovery systems can aid in the global target to reduce emissions.
VAPOUR RECOVERY is the process of collecting the vapours of products and fuels so that they do not escape into the atmosphere, where they can potentially cause harm. José Miguel González, engineering director at Tecam explains: ‘The hydrocarbons
that are released contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that evaporate easily. In addition to representing a significant loss of product and therefore sales, evaporated vapours have serious effects on human health and are harmful to the environment.’
In response to the pressures of global warming, governments around the world are urging for the reduction of emissions released. This includes the implementation of laws and regulations on tank storage owners to ensure correct vapour recovery systems are in place. VOCs are a cause for concern due to their role in the formation...
