Helping industrials facing evaporation problems
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are of major concern for industrials of oil & gas, chemicals, cosmetics or food sectors.
Losses of light hydrocarbons due to evaporation during their storage periods lead to impacts in terms of:
- Economy (losses of value added products)
- Environment (VOCs atmospheric rejections)
- Safety (Fire and explosion hazards because of flammable and explosive atmosphere formation)
Elbé petro’s floating roof can be installed in a used tank to expand its lifetime, and does not need any maintenance.
For example, for a given 36,6m diameter tank storing light hydrocarbons, ERIS system can save up to 280 tons/year.
The material used to make the floaters has been specifically developed to dissipate electrostatic charges with a given static decay.
The efficiency of ERIS system helps avoiding flammable atmosphere around tanks.
Volatile Organic Compounds evaporation, in addition to environmental concerns, can lead to important damages of breathing systems of site workers.
Preventing evaporation of chemicals and petrochemicals helps preventing induced industrial risks.
The conformity to ATEX directive of elbé petro’s floaters is certified by INERIS (French National competence center for Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection)
It would be unfortunate if these precious green technologies evaporate and contribute to polluting the air and / or the surrounding groundwater. ERIS system efficiency contribute to reduce VOCs rejection.
Made of polymer, elbé petro’s floaters require much less energy to be produced than metal based floating roofs.
Preventing petrochemicals evaporation is protecting our environment
