Reducing Toxic Emissions In Industrial Plants
Industry is a key component to the economy. It’s also a key contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions — one-fifth of the total — as well as the release of pollutants to water and soil. Dangerous pollutants in the form of aerosols, solid particles, toxic gases and vapors are all released during industrial processes. Combine this with the massive amount of energy consumption, as well as the generation of copious amounts of toxic waste, there is a totally warranted call for change. What are ways to reduce air, soil and water pollution? Some methods industrial companies can implement to moderate their pollution are abatement technologies, advanced equipment and responsibly sourced materials. Halogen-free bus ducts and bus plugs aid in power distribution while reducing chlorine and other chemicals produced in traditional methods. There are also new technologies that can be utilized to reduce, or even eliminate, pollutants as they are generated during production. These technologies include catalytic oxidizers, wet scrubbers and rotary concentrators — to name a few. Green materials and nonhazardous biocide alternatives, while possibly more costly, can help diminish toxicity in our water, air and produced waste. Such materials can also reduce health risks for workers and improve quality of life. These are not things to wish for in the future, but rather things that can be made possible in the present with a bit of effort. Working toward sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions in industrial plants is possible in the present.
