Regenerative Carbon Adsorption Systems

A simple and effective method for removing VOC, solvents and odors from manufacturing process emissions.

Non-Regenerable Carbon Adsorbers

A range from simple stand-alone units to skid-mounted packages.

Removal, Recovery & Purification of NMP

Proprietary systems, high efficiency removal of NMP and NEP.

B&W MEGTEC designs, supplies and installs Solvent Recovery Systems that utilize regenerative activated carbon adsorption, condensation, scrubbing and distillation technologies to control Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) vapor emissions from solvent-based manufacturing processes to comply with environmental regulations, and recover the solvents for reuse, generating substantial savings.

Multitude of solvents recovered

B&W MEGTEC Solvent Recovery Systems treat streams with a multitude of solvents, such as Chlorinated, Fluorinated, Brominated, HFCs, Hydrocarbons (aromatic and aliphatic), Ketones, Esters, Alcohols, DMF.
