Windmill,

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.

Cleaning ballast water

Receiving  up to 80,000 tons of oil polluted waste water from ships every year, the factory separates the oil into recycled and purified fuel oil. The company is located in Aarhus habour close to the city centre, and because of their residential neighbours, have faced challenges over the years due to air pollution from the oil separation process.

The CLIMATIC installation has been crucial in restoring the factory’s reputation and business. From being a severely criticized neighbor threatened by closure, the factory at Jysk Miljørens has solved their odor problems and has regained their status as an environmentally approved production facility.

Test at automobile painting line

Solvent emissions from painting lines is a known source of VOC emissions, but curretn technologies are both expensive and maintenance extensive. Infuser has developed a system based on the CLIMATIC technolgy with several advantages over conventional technolgies. A pilot installation was tested for 8 weeks on a bypass airstream in an actual production line.  Overall, the test proved the validity and functionality of the CLIMATIC systems and the system.

Test at spray drying facility

Spray drying of flavoring food ingredients leads to emissions of odorous and humid air. This matrix is very challenging for conventional technologies to treat, so after adaptation and initial investigations, a pilot test was conducted at a German spray drying facility. The odor analysis (conducted by an accredited independent laboratory) showed up to 92% odor reduction, clearly demonstrating the odor removing capabilities of the CLIMATIC system.

As a world’s first, INFUSER installed its CLIMATIC pollution control system on the roof of the visa building of the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing in January 2016.

Designed as an air purification solution requiring no structural reinforcements to the roof, the CLIMATIC integrates fully with the building’s existing air intake. Today, the CLIMATIC provides clean and breathable air to the staff and visitors to the visa building. The facility managers at the Royal Danish Embassy quickly saw the benefits of having INFUSER’s CLIMATIC system at the visa building. Not only does the CLIMATIC offer a very effective solution to the long lasting problem of inferior indoor air quality, the system also offers the embassy a direct cost saving. By removing the particles from the inlet air stream without the use of conventional filters, the lifetime of the existing ventilation filters has been extended. Frequent filter changes are now a thing of the past.

Climatic reference

Sliced potatoes are deep fried in rapeseed oil which release a characteristic odorous exhaust as well as leave a greasy residue in the surrounding area. INFUSER’s analysis showed that the exhaust consists of a mixture of saturated and unsaturated aldehydes and alcohols. Although the air is saturated with water from the frying potatoes, these compounds are not water soluble and therefore remains unaffected in the gas phase if untreated.

The compounds are, however, all highly susceptible to oxidation by OH radicals. In the present solution, ozone is mixed into the exhaust and the mixture is exposed to UV lights. The produced OH radicals react with the pollution and oxidize this. Since the oxidized hydrocarbons are much more water soluble than the original pollution, the pollution can now be washed out in a wet scrubber. The result is an exhaust containing only about 10% of the original pollution and a correspondingly reduced odour.
