ReducingCost & pollution

Polymers: Reducing costs and pollution in one go

The making and molding of plastics and polymers, such as polystyrene and epoxy, may lead to significant amounts of hazardous and odorous VOCs being emitted to the air. For example, production of large objects, such as wind turbine blades, boat hulls and swimming pools may lead to large volumes of low concentration pollution which can be extremely costly to deal with using conventional technologies.

For many production facilities, a CLIMATIC installation is a practical and economically viable alternative to the conventional technologies. Depending on the nature of the production and pollution, INFUSER will adapt the CLIMATIC solution to target the problem and ensure compliance with lowest possible cost and trouble for the client.

Polysterine cleaning wind turbine factory

Polystyrene is one of the most commonly used plastics for a variety of reasons. Here, polystyrene is used to produce wind turbine blades.

Whatever the reason, production of polystyrene from the raw materials always leads to emissions of styrene. Styrene has a characteristic pungent odor and are covered by the general VOC emission threshold. For these reasons, an air emission control installations was required and due to the nature of the production, a CLIMATIC solution was installed.

Polystyrene cleaning - clean air

Polystyrene is one of the most commonly used plastics for a variety of reasons. Here, polystyrene is used to protect the electronics of battery powered hand tools.

Whatever the reason, production of polystyrene frem the raw materials always leads to emissions of styrene. Styrene has a characteristic pungent odor and are covered by the general VOC emission threshold. For these reasons, an air emission control installations was required and due to the nature of the production, a CLIMATIC solution was installed.
