Oil and gas and chemical industries have to tackle several challenges related to the environment and safety of the workforce. One of the topmost challenges in oil and gas industry is hydrocarbon vapour emission. A similar challenge in the chemical industry is solvent vapour emission. These vapours of hydrocarbons and solvents can badly affect the atmosphere leading to several non-reversal damages. While it is dangerous for all the living beings, the immediate victims are the workforces on the sites. These vapours, if enter into their bodies, can create respiratory and haematological disorders, and as per studies, these vapours are also carcinogenic in nature.

Financial Losses Due to Vapour Emission

Whether it is hydrocarbon vapours of oil and gas sites or solvent vapours of chemical industries, we can’t just let them dissipate to the atmosphere. Because there are costs associated with them. Losing them would have a negative effect on the balance sheets. So, it is essential to recover the vapours in order to save the environment and contain the associated financial losses.

How To Recover the Vapour?

There are various ways to do this, but the most effective way is to employ an activated carbon-based system. Activated Carbon, due to its unique construction, has an exceptional ability of adsorption. Produced from carbonaceous materials, activated carbon undergoes several chemical and thermal processes due to which it has a huge surface area for interaction and can also be offered with varied pore size distributions. So, it has impressive abilities to adsorb a wide range of molecules. The best part is: just like adsorption, it can also undergo desorption. Hence, you can reverse the process, i.e. you can squeeze the adsorbed compounds out of it and send them back to the process or storage. When you do that you also regenerate the activated carbon which means it gets ready for the next cycle of adsorption.

How Should be the Design of a Vapour Recovery System?

An ideal activated-carbon-based recovery system should be dual-bed. So, while one is running the adsorption cycle, the other can undergo regeneration. This would keep the process continuous. These systems utilize extruded pellets of activated carbon because they have very good mechanical properties.
