Solvent recovery systems (SRS, SRP, SRU) are used in solvent-based manufacturing processes to control emissions of solvents (VOC, Volatile Organic Compound and HAP, Hazardous Air Pollutant) to comply with global, regional and local environmental regulations and directives. Recovering these solvents for direct reuse, at a fraction of the purchasing cost, will generate important savings (ROI).
Activated carbon adsorption technology, a BAT & BREF (Best Available Technology, IPPC 96/61/EC), can comply with the lowest emission limits (i.e. European Directive 1999/13/EC, TA Luft 2002), achieving removal efficiencies even higher than 99.9 percent. When you deal with important quantities of valuable solvents (Ethyl Acetate, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Toluene, Hexane, etc.) solvent recovery is the process to select: this process allows substantial savings over other emission control destructive technologies (i.e. oxidizers).
