Smart and Efficient VOC Abatement with Catalytic Oxidation
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that constitute one of the primary elements of air pollution in a wide range of industries – especially in processes that use large amounts of solvents or produce carbon monoxide, or odors. VOC emissions are significant greenhouse gases, and therefore regulated by national and European directives.
Genano VOC series are state-of-the-art compact catalytic VOC and odor abatement systems for energy efficient control of VOC waste gases. It fulfills the requirements of the EU VOC directive.
Genano is using catalytic oxidation to oxidize the VOCs. Therefore, the operation temperature is about 300°C – almost 500 °C lower than in thermal oxidation! Due to high operation temperature, in thermal oxidation there will be formed NOx which is toxic greenhouse gas. Due to its particular toxicity, this gas limit will be highly reduced by local authorities.
