Solvent recovery from Effluent

The VaporSep system uses selectively permeablemembranes to separatevolatile organic compounds(VOCs) from gaseous waste streams. This system is beingused for waste gas treatmentin petrochemical andpharmaceutical industries, andhas many more applications inrecovering CFCs, olefins, refrigerants, and other solvents. In addition, the advantage of recovering feedstock and diverting it from the wastestream, the membrane system is a simple, reliable, and energy efficient technology.


1. Recovery efficiency of 99% for VOCs

2. Saves material costs through the recovery of solvents and process chemicals

3. Reduces chemical releases to the environment
