solvent recovery systems - DEC IMPIANTI
Solvent recovery systems (SRS, SRP, SRU) are used in solvent-based manufacturing processes to control emissions of solvents (VOC, Volatile Organic Compound and HAP, Hazardous Air Pollutant) to comply with global, regional and local environmental regulations and directives. Recovering these solvents for direct reuse, at a fraction of the purchasing cost, will generate important savings (ROI).
The following processes are available:
* DEC.RSG™ - activated carbon solvent recovery, inert gas (nitrogen, N2) regeneration;
* DEC.RSV™ - activated carbon solvent recovery, steam regeneration;
* DEC.VRU™ - activated carbon solvent recovery, vacuum regeneration;
* DEC.CRY™ - cryogenic condensation, N2.
Activated carbon adsorption technology, a BAT & BREF (Best Available Technology, IPPC 96/61/EC), can comply with the lowest emission limits (i.e. European Directive 1999/13/EC, TA Luft 2002), achieving removal efficiencies even higher than 99.9 percent. When you deal with important quantities of valuable solvents (Ethyl Acetate, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Toluene, Hexane, etc.) solvent recovery is the process to select: this process allows substantial savings over other emission control destructive technologies (i.e. oxidizers).
Recycling Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions
By reducing the amount of new solvents used by industry, recycling also reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps prevent global climate change. This is because much of the solvents used in industrial processes are one of the most important sources of carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions into the environment. Additional benefits are derived from reduced emissions from oxidizers.
Eco-innovation for a sustainable future: reduce, recycle, reuse.
Recycling Reduces Emissions of Air and Water Pollutants
In addition to greenhouse gases, recycling can reduce a range of pollutants from entering the air and water. By decreasing the need to extract and process new raw materials from the earth, recycling can eliminate the pollution associated with the initial stages of a product's development: material extraction, refining and processing. These activities pollute the air, land and water with toxic materials, such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, methane, and sulfur dioxides. Further reductions are achieved as a result of energy saving, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants.
