Case Study - Steam Generating Thermal Oxidizer in California


As a leading global provider of air pollution abatement systems, Ship & Shore Environmental Inc. has been at the forefront of delivering tailored environmental solutions across diverse industries such as pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, food, biomedical, fuel cells, plastics, printing, packaging, biogas, petrochemical, and much more. Since our establishment in the year 2000, we have consistently demonstrated our commitment to addressing unique emission challenges.



Recognizing the distinctiveness of each facility and emission source, we approach every project on an individual basis. Our dedicated team designs and implements customized systems to meet the specific needs of our clients. In a recent milestone, we successfully collaborated with a client to design and install a highly energy-efficient Steam Generating Thermal Oxidizer. This cutting-edge system effectively eliminates 74 pounds per hour of toluene emissions, a volatile organic compound known for its adverse effects on the central nervous system, eyes, skin, respiratory system, liver, and kidneys. Our expertise extends to serving oil and gas tank farm facilities, showcasing our commitment to environmental sustainability and innovative solutions.

Our exceptionally skilled engineering team meticulously designed the Steam Generating Thermal Oxidizer with a strong focus on achieving optimal energy efficiency. The combustion system, expertly designed by our qualified professionals, attains a remarkable over 99% destruction efficiency of volatile organic compounds. This not only significantly reduces air pollution emissions but also maximizes heat recovery by harnessing the waste stream to generate steam essential for facility operations.

As a result, there is a substantial reduction in the facility’s fuel consumption, leading to considerable environmental improvements. The innovative design contributes to enhanced environmental performance, lowered operational costs, and, ultimately, substantial cost savings for our valued clients. It is worth noting that our system incorporates a state-of-the-art 20-ppm low-NOx burner, ensuring compliance with California’s stringent air quality requirements. This comprehensive approach underscores our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that prioritize both environmental responsibility and economic efficiency.

The system successfully achieved 10-ppm.
