Environmental C&C, Inc.

Environmental C&C is responsible for the application, design, engineering and sale of equipment build to our designs for the purpose of assisting industry to comply with EPA clean air standards. We specialize in applications with high volumes of industrial exhaust containing low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). One of our most notable clients is Ford Motor Company where we are treating their automotive paint lines. Our fluidized bed concentrator (FBC) abatement system is an integral part of Ford’s ‘Fumes to Fuel’ initiative to utilize concentrated paint solvents from their exhaust to create energy.

Our systems consist of an adsorber which removes volatiles from the airstream, and a desorber which releases the volatiles from the adsorbent media. The concentrated volatiles may then be condensed in recovery applications, or oxidized in destruction applications. The fluid bed technology is also a very cost effective option for odor abatement. Whether the application is VOC abatement, solvent recovery, or odor abatement, this technology provides the lowest operating cost, lowest energy use, and lowest secondary emissions (such as greenhouse gases) of any abatement technology available.

The system shown here is treating 160,000 cfm process flow from the painting operations of a military contractor. The 3 absorbers here are concentrating this process to a final volume of about 2,000 cfm. This provides an 80 to 1 turndown of the original dilute stream, with a corresponding increase in VOC concentration. The final treatment of the 2,000 cfm concentrate is carried out using a small thermal oxidizer

Spectrum BioEnergy LLC

Spectrum BioEnergy Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. develops projects to convert organic waste into renewable energy using proven and demonstrated anaerobic digestion, or biogas, technology. In New York State, our goal is to partner with established technology players to build one of the first multimillion dollar regional facilities to convert organic wastes – from entities such as colleges, supermarkets, and wastewater treatment plants – into renewable electricity. This electricity would be used onsite at a wastewater treatment plant, thereby benefitting the municipality via 1) savings on energy costs, 2) revenue from organic waste collections, and 3) a reduced burden on regional landfills, in addition to being a community project that we believe will garner great public support. Since 2011, Spectrum has received approximately $100,000 in funding from NYSERDA for our demonstration and feasibility projects, and aims to use this seed support as a foundation to develop a multimillion dollar biogas facility.
