We'll work with you to clean the air we breathe
EMISSIONS CONTROL -Flare Stacks are not an efficient way to control gas emissions
ODOR CONTROL - For a cleaner and more pleasant work environment use our odor destruction chemicals
GAS TO ENERGY - Unburned gases such as methane deplete the ozone layer. Convert cleaned waste gases into useful energy
A New Approach and a New Technology:
The persistent use of ineffective Flare Stacks in the oil and gas industry, with the associated high costs, as a means to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere, has been a flawed strategy for most situations. Flare Stacks typically attempt to convert hydrogen sulfide in "sour gas" streams into sulfur dioxide (a toxic gas) and water. Since most of the gas streams in question contain carbon dioxide, a fire retardant, Flare Stack incineration, an archaic "technology", is at best an incomplete process and leads to no overall reduction in the toxicity of the gas stream. Flare Stacks only partially incinerate the hydrogen sulfide in gas streams. The associated reduction in odor gives the false impression that the incinerated gases are less toxic than the original sour gas stream. For example one product of Flare Stack incineration is Sulfur Dioxide, a gas not as lethal as Hydrogen Sulfide, but a toxic gas nevertheless.
Using Flare Stacks to incinerate gas streams with high concentrations of Carbon Dioxide is poor economics considering that some operators actually add propane or pure methane to enhance the burning process in Flare Stacks! Carbon Dioxide is the gas in most fire extinguishers! It by nature is a fire retardant!
Our strategy uses a
completely different approach to "cleaning" emissions and replaces Flare
Stacks. With our portable EDU's we remove hydrogen sulfide, carbon
dioxide, and mercaptans from pre-combustion gas streams, and sulfur dioxide from
post-combustion exhaust gases.
Our patent pending, Emission Defense Units (EDUís) combine a simple and safe, gas to gas vessel reaction, in an atmospheric operating system that:
Our patent pending technology can be used to control site odors caused by Mercaptans (a class of sulfur compounds) and other sulfur based chemicals.
