Volatile & Semi-volatile organic compounds (VOC /SVOC) Removal


VOC / SVOC Removal to ppb levels

VC SORB and VC GasSorb Technologies can remove BTEX, Chlorinated hydrocarbons, and more to ppb levels.  

Power Energy has proprietary technologies that can remove volatile organic compounds (VOC) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) components to a very low concentration. Power Energy has removed benzene and other persistent VOCs to the levels of less than 0.05 ppm from the air and from water at petrochemical and refineries.
