Wet scrubber for VOCs abatement in chemical sector

Volatile Organic Compounds treatment

Realization of chemical products:

The customer is a leading manufacturer of chemicals such as fluorine, barium and strontium for various applications in the energy, electronics, agrochemical and food sectors. The company is certified and applies management systems that comply with the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.

VOCs from sodium bicarbonate treatment:

The problem that the company presented to Tecnosida® was the need to significantly reduce the VOCs produced during the manufacture of sodium bicarbonate.


The company also need to reduce dust concentrations.

Vertical wet scrubber:

Following an adequate inspection and sizing, Tecnosida® proposed to use a vertical wet scrubber system which, when used with the appropriate reagents, would be able to drastically reduce the concentrations of many types of molecules present in the emissions to be treated.

The pollutant absorption may be purely physical, in which case the substance dissolves in the scrubbing liquid, or chemical, when the substance reacts chemically with the liquid or with appropriate reagents dissolved in it.

On specific request, Tecnosida® designed, built and delivered the finished product, providing the installation layout together with the pre-assembled unit, ready to be installed by the customer.

On-site technical support was also provided, as well as constant telephone support during installation.
