Ethanol Process Industry VOC Control

The production of ethanol results in the formation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Carbon Monoxide (CO), two significant climate change pollutants instrumental in the formation of low level ozone and heat trapping greenhouse gasses.

VOC and CO are produced in the various fermentation, drying, and scrubber operations and are targets of Clean Air Act Legislation.  Ship & Shore Environmental, Inc designs and builds thermal oxidation systems to treat the unique properties of these process emissions.  Special care must be taken to address the corrosive, particulate, and tar/oil laden emissions formed during ethanol production.

Specialty materials of construction are needed to combat the inherent problematic environment to protect critical surface design of the oxidizer chambers and valving mechanisms.  Robust design is needed to withstand high temperature / corrosive atmosphere and subsequent maintenance operations – equipment bake-out / cleaning.

Ship & Shore Engineers are available to discuss proper metallurgy design and preventive maintenance measures to keep your next thermal oxidizer or existing system fully operational.  Please contact Ship & Shore Environmental at (562) 997-0233 or email sales@shipandshore.com for more info.
