Preserving the environment is an important task, and keeping air safe and clean is fundamental to protecting life. At Chemviron, we offer a broad scope of solutions to help the world breathe easier by removing contaminants and odors from the air supply.

Continued industrialisation means increased levels of air contaminants and new environmental and health challenges. Emission regulations are tightening to meet these challenges, and Chemviron provides proven solutions to these problems.

VOCs in Air

Activated carbon is the leading technology for the removal of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from air and other gases, including the removal of siloxanes from biogas. In most cases, the compound can be removed to below the detection limit, which means that the most stringent air quality regulations can be met and exceeded. The technology is reliable, simple and has been proven over many years.

Hydrogen Sulfide and Odour Control

Environmental awareness and concern for satisfactory working conditions has focused attention on the prevention of odour from sewage treatment works and other municipal and industrial effluent facilities. Noxious compounds such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S, hydrogen sulphide) and mercaptans are readily trapped through adsorption followed by chemisorption or catalytic conversion, while other organic compounds can be adsorbed by activated carbon.

Flue gas

Incinerators dealing with Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), hazardous industrial waste, medical waste, sewerage sludge and crematoria result in the formation of a flue gas containing a range of pollutants. Dioxins and heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium are not normally removed to low enough concentrations by conventional treatment. The dosing of Powder Activated Carbon (PAC) is an effective technology to remove these substances to the low limits required by legislation.

Toxic Inorganic Compounds Removal (MERCURY REMOVAL)

A range of industrial inorganic compounds and materials can be removed from gas streams, before venting to the atmosphere, using specialised impregnated or catalytic (CENTAUR®) carbons.

Chemviron’s extensive range of activated carbons and adsorption systems for air purification and environmental air treatment are designed to meet specific customer needs in a variety of applications.Applications typically include the removal of organic chemical contaminants from industrialair emissions, gas process streams, storage tank vents, internal work air environments, and soil remediation vents. Having the right carbon product is just one component of a complete air purification program.
