During storage (the so-called tank breathing), product loading and unloading, transport, cleaning and inerting of the hidrocarbon tanks, pollutant emissions are emitted into the atmosphere that must be eliminated.

These emissions are mostly emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC). To eliminate VOCs, the most commonly used and most effective technology is RTO equipment.


The technological solution

Installing an RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidation) not only fulfils the objective of eliminating volatile organic compounds, but it can also achieve a very high energy recovery, maintaining the same high VOC elimination efficiency.


Sectors affected

The hydrocarbon and chemical tank storage industry constantly encounters these types of emissions challenges.

Regardless of the tank content, the characteristics of the tank or the type of loss produced (permanent or working), this sector has to obtained a specialized solution tailored to each situation and project in order to eliminate the polluting emissions generated.


Koole Terminals, an example of what Tecam can do for you

Koole Tankstore Minerals is an international hydrocarbon storage company with a total storage capacity of over 3,500,000 cubic meters. For its facilities in the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Tecam was contracted to reduce the emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) generated during gas venting.

Tecam proposed a custom-made solution based on Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) technology that managed to reduce its VOC emissions by 99.9%.
