Cryogenic condensation

Addition of cryocondensation technology to treat emissions.

Esteve Química has always given the environment its utmost consideration. In our pursuit of continuous improvement and in view of the type of emissions we have, the manufacturing sites of Celrà and Banyeres del Penedès now include a cryocondensation system that allows treating gas emissions and recovering solvents by making use of the cooling power of liquid nitrogen at -196°C for condensation at very low temperatures.

Both facilities have a capacity of 150 Nm³ / h for solvent-saturated streams. The equipment has two columns that allow continuous operation (one in the defrosting process while the other is operating).
