The presence of phenol in waste gases may require a suitable abatement technique to prevent odour complaints or to meet the local emission limits. For example, the concentrated emissions due to thermal breathing and product transfer at liquid storage tanks require a very efficient abatement technique.

For the abatement of phenol-loaded gas flows, Trevi has completed projects based on the caustic scrubber technique. For these applications, both the scrubber liquid and concentration, scrubber liquid residence time and scrubber liquid temperature should be carefully chosen to obtain the required removal efficiencies.
