Tecam continues its international expansion in the environmental sector, with the awarding of a new key technology project for vapour recovery in Latin America.
Tecam, a leading supplier of environmental technology, announces that it has been awarded a new project for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) vapour recovery at a petrochemical tank storage plant in Chile.
Under the terms of the agreement, Tecam and its partner Cool Sorption will supply a Chilean tank storage plant with a VRU (Vapour Recovery Unit) that will be connected to an existing Tecam Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO). The VRU is expected to recover VOC vapours from storage, handling and distribution of gasoline at their tank farm.
Thanks to the installation of this VRU system, this petrochemical company will be able to recover approximately 500 litres/hour of gasoline during operations at this plant, making the ROI of this project attractive for the customer.
After recovering valuable vapours, the vented gas from the VRU system will be treated in the RTO supplied by Tecam to this customer one year ago. The RTO system was the most optimal solution after analyzing the technical requirements of the customer, taking into account the air flow to be treated and the nature and characteristics of the gases emitted.
"We are delighted to have been awarded this new project in Chile," said Bernat Sala, Tecam CEO. “Environmental technology has proved to be profitable for companies while allowing them to adapt to the strictest environmental legislation. We believe that 2022 will be a good year for the environmental sector”.
Thanks to the elimination of 99.9% of VOC polluting emissions derived from their petrochemical processes and thanks to the gasoline recovery, this Chilean petrochemical tank farm has become a facility with the highest standards of safety, quality and respect for the environment.
