eChem Expo & Anguil Presentation

***Delayed due to COVID, looking forward to 2021***

Different oxidizer technologies are used on various applications in the chemical industry for the destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and odorous emissions. No other supplier has the worldwide experience with emission control applications in this industry like Anguil does.

Held every two years in Kingsport, Tennessee, eChem Expo is a one-day event packed with seminars on innovation, productivity, and sustainability for chemical processors. On October 7th and 8th, Anguil personnel will be located in booth number 59 of the Knowledge Center Hub. We welcome the opportunity to meet attendees to discuss their air pollution control and energy recovery needs.

During the show, Jeff Kudronowicz of Anguil will be presenting to attendees on the Technologies and Techniques used on rich fume, VOC control applications. A wide variety of industries use thermal and catalytic oxidizers for the destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). Determining which oxidizer technology to apply relies on the flow, temperature, concentration and contaminants coming from the process. Many chemical processing processes generate VOCs and HAPs that are inert, or contain very little oxygen, and are extremely concentrated. The same facility can also have other emission sources that produce dilute streams with plenty of oxygen but not much calorific value.

Treating both of these flows in the same oxidizer system can save a substantial amount of money in capital expenditures and operating expenses. However, combining the different emission sources does present some challenges for the abatement systems. Our presentation will examine, in detail, all the benefits and potential hurdles when destroying inert and dilute emission streams in a single abatement device using real world examples and data. In addition, we will cover the various equipment options and maintenance recommendations specific to abatement projects in the chemical processing industry. Click here to see the seminar schedule.

New Trends In Industrial Pollution Control

If you have both air and water pollution control needs, how do you know that your treatment approach is optimizing performance and operating costs? As you undertake pollution abatement projects, how can you really be sure that you’re protected against creeping project costs, missing compliance requirements, and project management headaches?

An integrated approach to industrial air and water pollution abatement is gaining traction as an optimal solution, with many benefits including one point of contact, reduced project administration and a holistic solution. However, finding and leveraging a provider with sufficient expertise across both sectors is challenging, if not nearly impossible.

This discussion will examine industrial pollution control trends through the lens of a single source air and water solutions provider, offering insight into avoiding abatement project pitfalls and how an integrated approach can save you time, money, and hassles.

Anguil Celebrates a Major Milestone

Milwaukee, WI: Starting an environmental company in the late 1970’s was not nearly as well received as it would be today, but Gene Anguil, Founder of Anguil Environmental Systems, persevered. Four decades later, Anguil is recognized as a worldwide leader of industrial air pollution control and wastewater treatment technologies. On August 12th, the company is hosting a 40th anniversary party that will be truly international, drawing attendees from across the United States, Asia, and Europe. Held in downtown Milwaukee, the private celebration will be one of the first events in the new wing at Discovery World overlooking Lake Michigan.

Approximately four-hundred people are expected at the Sunday evening party. Guests will consist of employees, both current and former, as well as partners, key suppliers, sales representatives and close family friends. “It’s important that we recognize the people and companies that helped us get where we are today,” said Gene. “While my wife was our first, and arguably most-important employee, there were also a lot of other vital contributors to our success.”

The night will include a multimedia presentation focused on Anguil’s Recipe for Success: Vision, Expertise, Leadership, Employees, Resilience, Fun, Community, and Family. Dinner and dancing will follow a series of speeches by key Anguil personnel. According to Chris Anguil, son of Gene and President of the company, “August 12th also happens to be Gene’s 80th birthday, so there may be some surprises”.

Throughout the past four decades, the company has celebrated countless successes, but also persevered through some challenges. Major milestones include several moves into increasingly larger facilities, the establishment of international operations, development of an extensive global sales representative network, and a continuous garnering of awards like the employee-driven Top Workplace distinction and the Environmental Business Journal Achievement Award. The tragic passing of Gene’s oldest son Jeff in 1993, then company President, was one of those challenging moments that tested the company’s resiliency while cementing the family culture that still exists today.
The 40th anniversary celebration comes at a time of widespread enthusiasm for the company’s mission and steady growth, including the hiring of several third generation Anguil employees, aggressive global sales targets, and the completion of a remodel of their corporate headquarters in Brown Deer. This investment buoys the optimism of employees and the surrounding community, looking ahead to many more years of success.
