Dynagen, Inc.

Year Submitted: 2003

Process: Condensate Filtration

Industry: Chemical Manufacturing

Wastes Reduced: Process Chemicals

Substance: Styrene

Location: Odessa TX

No. of employees: 250

Contact: Julie Salinas

Phone: (915) 335-7522



Description:

Dynagen has installed a more efficient styrene decanter for the purpose of enhancing the separation of styrene and water condensate from its latex stripper condensers. The new system, because of its improved efficiency, results in reduced emissions from the decanter process.

P2 Application:

A decanter is a readily available technology that has typically been used to separate hydrocarbons and water. Dynagen has made some proprietary enhancements to the system design to improve its efficiency.

Environmental Benefits:

The new system will eliminate the off-site disposal of a wastewater stream of 300-500 gallons per day that contained styrene at low concentrations. Dynagen recycles about 5,000 pounds of styrene a year using this new system.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

Cost savings are from increased material utilization. The product recovered from this process has a sale value of approximately $1,400 per year.
