VOC treatment

At Condorchem Envitech we provide both, destructive and non-destructive technologies, for VOC (or volatile organic compounds) treatment in any industrial sector. VOC’s purification is essential to adapt industrial processes in compliance with VOC emission limitations, as set forth by regulations in each country.

We are experts in designing the most efficient process for elimination the Volatile Organic Compounds, which will depend on different factors; airflow being treated and its variability, VOC concentration in the air and its variability, availability of space, etc.

Among the most competitive techniques that Condorchem Envitech designs and installs to treat VOC emissions are:

There are multiple air pollutants that may have a harmful impact on human health and the environment, including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), sulphur oxides, odor generating compounds, solid particulate matter, ozone and ozone precursors, which are nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds.

CFCs contribute significantly to the destruction of the ozone layer in the stratosphere, as well as to the enhancement of the greenhouse effect. These volatile organic compounds are used for multiple applications, principally in the cooling industry, aerosol propellants and are also present in thermal isolation products. If left untreated, CFCs remain in the atmosphere for a long time (between 50 and 100 years).

The impact of emitting VOCs is one of the greatest environmental problems today. They are responsible, on mixing with NOx, for forming the photochemical smog. Moreover, they cause harmful effects on human health and on natural ecosystems due to their toxicity. On the other hand, they are odoriferous substances, a fact that has a very negative effect on the environment of the industry that emits them. 
 
Among the industrial sectors in which VOCs are generated are the steel industry, the plastic industry, the food industry, the paint, varnishes and lacquers industry, the livestock industry and the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, among others.
