New Ethanol Scrubber Reduces Plant Capital & Operating Costs

Find me on:

I'm making plans to head to Denver for the upcoming 2009 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop and Expo, June 15-18 in Denver, CO.  Envitech has a booth at #1241.  I'll be giving a talk on our new, patent-pending ethanol scrubber which reduces capital and operating costs. 

The new Envitech ethanol scrubber reduces total organic carbon compounds (TOC) in the exhaust gases to acceptable levels without requiring thermal oxidation or chemical transformation.  The scrubber uses ethanol as a light alcohol solvent for the other, non-ethanol organic carbon compounds.  While these compounds have low solubility in water, they have high solubility in ethanol.  Because ethanol is readily available from the plant, it is an ideal solvent for these difficult to remove compounds. 

My talk is at:
