Bio-Reaction Industries Helps Toyota Reduce VOC Emissions.
Technology from Bio-Reaction Industries is helping Toyota to significantly reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions within one of its painting operations.
According to Toyota's 2008 North America Environmental Report, its aluminum wheel plant in Delta, British Columbia, recently added a third paint booth to meet growing demand. As a result, VOC emissions were expected to increase. To alleviate the VOC increase the plant needed to implement new emission reduction technology.
Traditionally the plant used regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) to reduce VOC emissions in the air stream. The plant instead opted for a Bio-Reaction advanced bio-filter system, which biologically breaks down VOCs. By not opting for thermal oxidation, Toyota significantly reduced the energy needed to treat the VOCs and is keeping tons of new CO2 from being generated every year.
"Toyota has always been a leader in energy efficiency and environmental manufacturing. We appreciate the opportunity to work with them. Their understanding of the need for a better way to treat VOC emissions demonstrates their commitment to energy and environmental issues," said Karl Mundorff, President/CEO of Bio-Reaction Industries.
