Chemical pollutants abatement

Our range of packed bed scrubbers is capable of absorbing and separating chemical pollutants such as alkaline or acid compounds, sulfur or nitrogen compounds, toxic gases, solid particles as well as aerosols.

Absorption and separation processes

  • Absorption processes for chemical pollutants such as:
    • Alkaline: NaOH, NaClO3
    • Acids: HCl, HF, HCN, HBr …
    • Sulphur compounds: SO2, SO3, H2S, RSH …
    • Nitrogen compounds: NH3, NO3, RNH2
    • Toxic gases: Cl2, BF3
  • Separation processes for droplets and aerosols such as:
    • H2CrO4, H2SO4, HNO3, (NH4)2SO4, HCl …


  • Production, storage and packaging of basic chemical compounds
  • Degassing of reactors in fine chemistry and pharmacy
  • Burning liquid/waste in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry
  • Metallurgy : iron and steel industries
  • Treatment of SO2/SO3/HF/HBr/HCl
  • Degreasing and chroming baths, preparation and metalizing surfaces
