Odorous Emissions: Recycling Plant`s Problems Solved

Jan 21 2009

A pioneering marine oil recycling project in Malta has turned to UK company Simdean Envirotec to solve the problem of odorous emissions that were escaping from its plant and causing local businesses and residents to complain.

The ground-breaking project undertaken by the Waste Oil Company, part of Malta`s Falzon Group, collects waste oil, bilge water and ballast from all sectors of the marine industry for recycling at its state-of-the-art facility.

As part of the recycling process, hydrogen sulphide is produced as a volatile emission. In emptying tanks and centrifuging the oil to remove impurities, the hydrogen sulphide was escaping into the atmosphere.

Nick Carter, Simdean`s Managing Director, comments: “We made several site visits and discussed the situation in depth with Waste Oil`s management. Our in-house teams then developed systems to remove the pollutants. Equipment was
fabricated at our manufacturing centre in Warwick , shipped to Malta and fitted and commissioned by our own installers. To ensure the most effective scrubber design, we worked with American specialists Lamtec Products Inc.

Results from the commissioning showed a scrubbing efficiency of 99%, bringing the facility`s pollution problems completely under control.
