Air Pollution Control
Today, companies across a range of industrial activities must abide by a series of air pollution controls established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and variously enforced by state authorities. Chiefly, these controls focus on the Criteria Air Pollutants and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) below:
- Particulate Matter (PM)
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
- Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)
- Sulfur Dioxide (SOx)
Founded in California and familiar with its tight standards for emissions controls and monitoring, OnQuest has for years specialized in designing applications and technologies that reduce NOx emissions, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and HAPs.
OnQuest's staff of experienced professionals can provide engineering solutions that help companies to control of all of these chemicals or pollutants. We design a number of methods—including both pre- and post-combustion technologies—to achieve lower levels during the start-up and ongoing operation of furnaces, heaters, kilns, and process plants, and retrofitted equipment.
From furnaces and fired heaters and kilns to the treatment of exhaust from fume extraction hoods, OnQuest offers solutions for your air pollution control needs.
Thermal Oxidation Technologies
Emissions of certain VOCs can be effectively and efficiently controlled by applying thermal oxidation techniques. Hazardous air pollutants that are organic in nature, for example—such as poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and solvent vapors—are converted through oxidization to carbon dioxide and water.
Thermal oxidation is frequently packaged with other technologies for a comprehensive air pollution control system.
NOx Reduction Technologies
With ongoing attention being placed on the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) and continuing emphasis by USEPA and global authorities on reduction of NOx emissions, OnQuest's clients increasingly see NOx reduction technologies as a priority.
OnQuest has designed solutions that help companies produce lower levels of NOx from their fired equipment, including using low NOx and ultra-low NOx burners, and reducing NOx concentrations in flue gas streams by installing Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technologies.
