During the extraction of natural gas, cavities are created where stagnant water accumulates. If the soil layer contains a high salinity, this water transforms into brine with a small amount of methane. We built a tailor-made methane stripper to solve this problem.
PCA was contacted because the company wanted to reduce the environmental impact of the emission of the noxious fumes. Our engineering department therefore designed a horizontal packed gas scrubber with NaOH dosage to neutralize the acid vapors.
