VOC Mitigation involves reducing emissions of volatile organic compounds. There are many methods of VOC mitigation and each can be tailored to the unique VOC fingerprint of a city. The goal is to reduce the amount of emissions of VOCs while maintaining the quality of the air. In some cities, VOC mitigation efforts are combined with other air pollution control technologies.
What are the steps of a Radon mitigation?
The first step in VOC mitigation is to determine the amount of emissions a given factory produces. This can be done by performing an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Once a factory is up and running, it can start to reduce its VOC emissions. It is then possible to meet or exceed national and regional emission caps by using EIAs and periodic monitoring data.
Another method for VOC mitigation is to use aerated floors to improve ventilation rates. These systems increase the resistance to permeation, but their capital cost is usually higher. Some systems also require periodic inspection and monitoring. These methods may be expensive and require more effort than SSV, but they can have collateral benefits.
VOCs are organic chemical compounds that are difficult to degrade. The main VOC is ethane, which is produced by incomplete combustion and unintended evaporation. Many industries emit VOCs into the air by burning oil and cooking fat. Another source of VOCs is biomass combustion. Many rain forests are used as biofuel, and the combustion of biomass releases VOCs.
