Graham Magnetics, Inc.
The purpose of Graham's Air Emissions Reduction Projects is to reduce the amount of volatile solvent which escape from the process of producing digital magnetic data storage tapes.
The Side Stream Reactivator is "state-of-the-art" for improving the efficiencies of fluidized, activated carbon adsorbers. The idea of using a VOC contaminated air supply for our high purity oven air intakes was also a novel use of existing technology.
The successful implementation of this project will dramatically reduce the volume of volatile organic compound emissions from Graham Magnetics operations and has allowed GMI to reqiest consolidation of all existing TNRCC air permits to a single permit, while eliminating all "grandfathered" sources at the Graham facility and reducing the potential to emit VOC's from greater than 2,000 tons per year to 519.5 tons per year. This dramatic reduction in emissions will obviously improve the environmental quality in the Graham area.

Additional Information :
This project will result in a savings of thousands of dollars per year with a small initial investment and a greatly reduced operating expense. The project requires no additional labor force for implementation and is economically self-sustaining.
The Zero Waste Network is one of eight Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange P2RxCenters , serving as a national network of regional information centers: NEWMOA (Northeast), WRRC (Southeast), GLRPPR (Great Lakes), ZeroWasteNet (Southwest), P2RIC (Plains), Peaks to Prairies (Mountain), WSPPN (Pacific Southwest), PPRC (Northwest). We are a proud member of the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable.
