Many manufacturing companies are recognizing the increased awareness of and demands for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their facilities. Among the sources of greenhouse gas emissions at manufacturing facilities are the installed combustion systems such as ovens, dryers and burners. Another source can be the pollution abatement system in place: the oxidizer.

Seeking ways to accomplish these reductions, the manufacturers may consider a multiple of solutions. One source for more information is an upcoming webinar, organized byProcess Heating, focused on “Minimizing Greenhouse Gases with VOC Oxidizers.” Scheduled for Tuesday, October 5, at 2 p.m. ET, the no-cost online seminar promises to help end-users squeeze the most work out of their existing oxidizer or match a new oxidizer to their needs, with the overarching goals of emissions reduction and fuel conservation.

Oxidizer end-users will learn how to:
  • Match a new oxidizer to their needs.
  • Minimize fuel use.
  • Reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Work with lean or rich vapors.
The webinar will cover the options for control via a range of oxidizers, with an emphasis on choosing the most appropriate system for a given application. The webinar also will teach attendees about minimizing fuel use, reducing emissions and recovering heat.

The webinar will be presented by Thomas F. McGowan, PE, the president and founder of Atlanta-based TMTS Associates Inc., an engineering consulting firm. McGowan has 35 years of experience in combustion, air pollution control, solids handling and industrial ventilation. He holds a MS ChE degree from Manhattan College in New York City, and a MS in Industrial Management from Georgia Tech, and is OSHA 1910.120 HAZWOPER-certified.

The webinar is sponsored by Adwest Technologies; Air-Clear LLC; Catalytic Combustion Corp.; Catalytic Products International; Geoenergy Div., A.H. Lundberg Associates; Megtec Systems; Pollution Systems; and Turner EnviroLogic.
