Companies that handle fossil fuel products including oils, pesticides, and plastics need reliable treatments for hydrocarbons in air emissions. Desotec has the solution: sustainable mobile filtration services that enable your company to protect your business and meet your green goals.

Hydrocarbons: BTEX, VOCs, alkenes, aromatics, and more

Effective treatment for hydrocarbons is essential. Hydrocarbons are the main constituents of fossil fuels and their emissions contribute to the formation of ozone, a greenhouse gas. Many hydrocarbons are toxic, and some, such as benzene, are carcinogenic, posing a risk to the health of site workers and visitors. Odor nuisance is another issue: oil, coal, and gas products release strong smells into the air, prompting complaints from area residents.

Desotec is ready to help. We supply sustainable mobile filtration services to companies that have to deal with hydrocarbons. The most common hydrocarbons include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), and alkenes. Desotec activated carbon filtration successfully removes all of these components.

Industrial Odor Control

Robust odor control is key for maintaining good community relations and a positive corporate reputation. With Desotec’s sustainable mobile filtration services, it’s easy to comply with odor emissions limits.

Many industries are facing the challenge of odorous hydrocarbon emissions, including the manufacture or handle of asphalt and bitumen, plastics and polymers, and pesticides. Production halls and storage tank vents are other emission sources.

Desotec helps you assess your odor nuisance issue, then installs the best setup for your unique situation. We have filter models suitable for various flow rates and concentrations. These models handle discontinuous flows, such as those generated by truck loading and unloading, so you stay on your neighbors’ good side throughout your operations.

Soil Remediation

While many products containing hydrocarbons are now banned or heavily controlled, such as coal-tar creosote, their legacy remains at former industrial sites. Desotec supplies sustainable activated carbon filters to remediation companies working on new construction projects at such sites.

Our filters are placed at excavation tents, where they treat emissions resulting from the digging or thermal treatment of soil. Such set-ups are characterized by large flow rates and very low concentrations, for which our filters are highly cost-effective. As our filters are small, mobile, and supplied on a rental basis, they are ideal for busy and temporary construction projects.

We all use fossil fuel products every day, but the manufacture of these products emits hydrocarbons that present odor, health, and environmental challenges. Desotec's sustainable mobile filtration solutions ensure the air we breathe stays clean and healthy.

Helping You Comply

Desotec has the know-how and technology to support your company in meeting its legal obligations, including European legislation such as the IPPC Industrial Emissions Directive. Laws are increasingly being tightened globally, so it’s important to get technology in place to future-proof your company.

At a national level, occupational health legislation protects workers at your site. Environmental authorities also set the terms of your site operating license, which will likely include hydrocarbon thresholds to prevent odor nuisance and protect the environment.

By partnering with Desotec, you’ll meet your green goals while ensuring smooth operations. In urgent situations, we will install filters quickly to get them working immediately.

How We Help You

Desotec Sustainable Mobile Filtration Solutions
