EcoVapor – Zer02
Tank Vapor Recovery System
EcoVapor is dedicated to helping vital industries improve their environmental and financial sustainability with innovative technology.
EcoVapor’s solutions help eliminate routine flaring, minimize emissions, and purify natural gas streams to maximize the productivity of oil and gas facilities, midstream and saltwater disposal operations, biogas and landfill gas operations, and more.
Investors, communities, regulators, and other key stakeholders are asking everyone to do more to improve environmental performance. Simultaneously, there is pressure to do more with less, optimize capital spending, generate free cash flow, improve returns to investors, and increase environmental sustainability.
That’s a tall order, but EcoVapor believes it is possible. Their solutions let you achieve all of the above and offer you a pathway to net-zero emissions.
EcoVapor has been delivering on this promise since 2010, while adhering to their guiding principles of integrity, efficiency, innovation, and positive environmental impact.
Achieve environmental performance goals without sacrificing economic results
The composition of biogas varies widely, but typically includes methane, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), water vapor, and oxygen. Hydrogen sulfide and oxygen create corrosion and safety hazards to infrastructure, including natural gas pipelines. To sell biogas as renewable natural gas (RNG), it must be purified to meet pipeline specifications by removing water, H2S and oxygen.
EcoVapor has designed a comprehensive biogas upgrading system for treating H2S, oxygen and water, so that your produced gas can be sold as high-value RNG.
The ZerO2 vapor recovery system enables you to directly capture 100% of your tank vapor, eliminating the need for routine flaring while generating more revenue.
EcoVapor’s reliable, patented technology advances vapor recovery performance by eliminating oxygen from tank vapor gas via multiple sources – oil storage tanks, produced water storage tanks and truck loadouts – allowing you to sell valuable high-BTU gas instead of flaring it.
ZerO2 can also be used in gas blanketing applications to remove oxygen and help you mitigate ignition risk in storage tanks.
Advantages of the Zer02 include:
- Modular design that lets you right-size and relocate treating capacity as operations change
- No moving parts, ensuring high reliability
- Small operational footprint making ZerO2 units easy to install and move
- Non-toxic byproducts, ensuring sustainable and safe operations
ZerO2 units are available in a range of sizes that are straightforward to swap out, letting you capture high volumes of tank vapor early in the production life of an asset, then scale down your treating capacity as vapor volume decreases along with natural production decline. The ZerO2 lineup is a true life-of-well solution.
Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
EcoVapor has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with EcoVapor to further refine the cost and performance information on their technologies and services. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
