Destruction of Harmful Gases
Jan 07 2022
ASTM International’s air quality committee (D22) is developing a proposed standard that will aid in the removal of gases that are harmful to both people and to the environment. The proposed standard covers the proper destruction of gaseous fugitive emission by thermal oxidizer or catalyst.
According to J. David Halley, chair of ASTM’s gaseous fuels committee (D03), chemical manufacturers are likely to find proposed standard (WK68843) useful. Members of both D22 and D03 are working together to develop the proposed standard.
Destruction of gaseous fugitive emissions referred to as waste gases include the Toxic Release Inventories Gases (TRI), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) and include benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX). Destruction needs to comply with governmental regulations.
