Tri-Mer Corp. recently introduced the MultiPhase BioSystem, which incorporates both air phase and liquid phase approaches to take advantage of the natural tendency of VOCs to partition into both phases. The system uses proprietary media and enhanced bioremediation techniques to treat high inlet concentrations of VOCs with efficiencies of up to 98%.
The MultiPhase uses permanent, synthetic ceramic biomedia that is surface-modified to allow accelerated attachment and growth. The biomedia has a high biologically active surface area, and it will not clog due to biomass growth or particulate accumulation. The media bed is self-cleaning and never needs to be replaced.
With a small, manageable footprint, the MultiPhase is a single-vessel system that can be sited close to the emission source, sometimes even inside the facility, to minimize long duct runs. The system generates minimal wet and solid waste, and does not create NOx by-products. It also produces much less CO2 because it does not burn natural gas. The system’s lifecycle environmental impact is much smaller than biofilters, RTO and RCO.
In contrast to thermal oxidation, the MultiPhase is reportedly much less expensive to install and operate over time. Systems are custom-engineered to the application and are operated like standard industrial equipment. The MultiPhase is fully instrumented, integrates with the plant control system, and can be rapidly brought on and offline.
