Halogenated compounds


What are halogenated compounds?

Halogenated compounds are those that contain a halogen element; in other words, those whose composition includes molecules of chlorine, bromine, fluorine, iodine, etc.

Which compounds are halogenated?

Many organic compounds can contain halogens in their molecular structure.

Tecam focuses its efforts on the treatment of volatile halogenated organic compounds, which harm the ozone layer and the environment when they are emitted into the atmosphere. The most common compounds we treat are organic molecules containing chlorine.

We encounter compounds containing bromine less frequently.

Problems caused by halogenated compounds

Halogenated compounds can contaminate the water, soil and air, as well as plants and animals, and can also harm the ozone layer. The decomposition of the compound can give rise to inorganic compounds that may have a direct impact on the plants and animals near the source of the emission, and may also result in the production of acid rain.

Which industrial sectors are affected?

The petrochemical, food, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, textile, paper and plastics industries, among others, along with industrial treatment plants.

Which industrial sectors are affected?

Tecam’s technological solutions combine RTO systems and scrubbers: the RTO makes it possible to convert any volatile halogenated organic compound into more basic (inorganic) compounds, which are then treated by the scrubbers.

By combining these two technologies (RTO and scrubbers), Tecam is able to reduce emissions, comply with current restrictions on emissions, and reduce the impact of emissions on the atmosphere and the environment.
