Guest Post - The Leading Air Pollution Controls

With the recent news that air pollution is now considered to be a leading cause of lung cancer, there is a growing emphasis on the need for stringent controls and measures that curb the potential impact of carbon emissions. The issue facing small business owners, however, is that few of them have an understanding of these measures or quite how important they are in the current environmental climate. Without this fundamental basis of knowledge, however, you may run the risk of failing in terms of compliance and providing a safe working environment to employees.

The Most Effective Air Pollution Controls

With this in mind, it is worth considering the most effective air pollution control and the reasons for their widespread appeal. Consider the following: -

  • Hazardous Waste Flue Cleaning Systems:

    Construction and manufacturing plants will often have waste flue pipes and conduits, and these are a leading contributor to the global release of harmful emissions. Therefore, ensuring that these systems are thoroughly and regularly cleaned is one of the most important air pollution controls, especially if it is undertaken correctly and by a reputable industry professional such as ERG Air Pollution Control. Using techniques such as high temperature quenching and scrubbing, this method will reduce the amount of harmful emissions that your business is responsible for.

  • The Removal of Particles in High Volume Gas Flows:

    In power and nuclear plants, harmful materials and substances are particularly prominent. These particles can be especially damaging when they are released through high volume gas flows, as this maximises their volume and the level of harmful emissions that your business produces on an annual basis. To negate the threat of high volume gas flows, you should ensure that variable throat venturi scrubbers are used to remove all particles effectively and completely without fail.

  • Managing and Removing Soluble Contamination:

    While harmful gas emissions are a key contributor to air pollution, you should not underestimate the damage that can be caused by soluble or liquid materials. Your approach to the management and removal of soluble contamination is therefore critical, and this often requires the use of wet chemicals scrubbers and solutions to ensure an effective outcome. These materials and items of equipment can be used for various unique applications, but once again it is important to solicit the guidance of industry experts prior to taking direct action.
