Tecam awarded environmental technology project in Latin America

Tecam 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 vapour recovery unit (VRU) that will be connected to an existing Tecam regenerative thermal oxidiser (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/hr of gasoline during operations at this plant, making the return on investment (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 analysing 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”.
