Blog Volatile organic compounds abatement systems: An innovative and sustainable approach

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are chemical substances that originate from various sources and are commonly generated in different industrial processes. They can have a negative impact on human health and the environment by contributing to smog formation and global warming. Therefore, they need to be eliminated using appropriate abatement systems.

To reduce the impact of VOCs on the environment and health, it is crucial to adopt effective and sustainable abatement systems.

HFiltration's air treatment technologies present an innovative approach to tackle this challenge.


What are HFiltration's VOC abatement systems?


HFiltration's VOC abatement systems are designed to efficiently and safely remove volatile organic compounds from the air. These systems use a combination of advanced technologies, including thermal/chemical oxidation and adsorption, to capture and convert VOCs into less harmful or inert products.

Here are the four main VOC abatement systems by HFiltration:

  1. Biofilters: Biofiltration is an innovative and natural technology for VOC abatement. Biofilters use a bed of organic material (gravel, roots, bark, peat, compost) where microorganisms (such as bacteria and fungi) grow and use pollutants as a food source for their metabolism, breaking them down and transforming them into less harmful and inert substances.

  2. Scrubber Tower: Scrubber Towers are filtration systems designed to reduce the concentration of VOCs and dust in a gas stream. These systems use water or washing liquids to capture and remove VOCs, allowing clean air to exit from the top of the tower.

  3. Thermal Oxidizers: Thermal oxidizers are abatement systems designed to eliminate volatile organic compounds and odors through high-temperature thermal oxidation of the pollutant molecules.

  4. Activated Carbon Filters: Filtration using activated carbon is an effective purification technology used to remove odors or non-water-soluble pollutants. Activated carbon filters leverage the process of adsorption and act as "pollutant-capturing" devices for air. They consist of activated carbon granules with a porous structure. As air passes through the filter, pollutant substances present in the air get trapped in the small pores of the activated carbon, which acts like a sponge. Clean and pollutant-free air is then directed outside.
