Since 2015, the principals of Captis Aire have partnered with Environmental C&C to test and operate an FBC emissions control and solvent recovery system for use in wood drying.   

 

Environmental C&C and its affiliates have been supplying fluidized bed VOC control and odor abatement systems for many applications for over 30 years. 

 

Together, this team provides a capital and energy efficient control technology that controls emissions, recovers valuable organic byproducts, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Environmental C&C (EC&C) and its affiliates have been supplying fluidized bed VOC control and odor abatement systems for over 30 years. The technology was made possible by the invention of Bead Activated Carbon, which is a petroleum pitch based, highly attrition resistant material.  There are currently over 500 Fluidized Bed Concentrator (FBC) systems installed worldwide for odor control and VOC abatement, in a variety of industries.  Throughout Environmental C&C's history, we have had the benefit of a close working relationship with the original developer of the Bead Activated Carbon.

Our Mission

Our Partnership

About us

To provide a capital and energy efficient emissions control technology that improves the efficiency of wood drying processes and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.  

 

We partner to provide systems integration enabling industrial customers to control emissions.  This includes providing control equipment, bead activated carbon, installation oversight, commissioning, training, and service.

 

We have unique expertise using the FBC technology for controlling emissions from wood drying, i.e. for controlling emissions from Oriented Strand Board (OSB), wood pellet, plywood, etc.  manufacturing processes.

The principals of Captis Aire bring to the partnership over 20 years of experience in technology development, commercialization, project management, and applications testing.  The principals of Captis Aire have partnered with Environmental C&C since 2015 to test and operate an FBC emissions control and solvent recovery system for use in wood drying.
