Adsorbent Media Offers Alternative Environmental Treatment Alternative

Envirogen Technologies Inc. has launched a service program that provides an alternative to environmental treatment applications that might otherwise feature activated carbon as an adsorption medium. EnviroHPA Systems features a range of adsorbent media in systems designed, guaranteed and operated by Envirogen under multi-year agreements.

Envirogen offers EnviroHPA Systems as a service in which system design and installation, media costs, regeneration and disposal are charged as an operating fee over the life of the system. They can be offered with low- to no-capital investment, guaranteed performance and predictable costs over the service life of the installation.

Savings with EnviroHPA Systems can approach 50 percent when compared with traditional activated carbon systems in high volume applications, according to the company. The system was also designed to have a smaller carbon footprint compared with activated carbon systems.

The initial applications for EnviroHPA Systems will be in the hydrocarbon processing and chemical processing industries for removal and recovery of select organics from wastewater, groundwater and vapor phase streams. Envirogen expects to have similar offerings for potable groundwater treatment, municipal wastewater treatment and other applications in the near future.
