Description:

This was a reserch and development project to reduce Green House Gases to the atmosphere. We are always looking for ways to improve our environment.

P2 Application:

We installed the Patent Pending Bio-Filter system in March of 2008. The process included installation and test monitoring to see the effectiveness of this new technology. Center Line Machine has developed this Patent Pending Bio Filter Technology. 600 E. Yukon Road, Odessa, Tx, 79768-2068, 432-367-0006 office, 432-412-9334 (Mike Strickland-cell), m.strcikland@clpsolutions.net

  • Total Cost Savings: $5,000.00

Details of Reductions


  • Comments: The method 21 test results showed a reduction from 80,000+ppm (flamed out equipment) to average of 8,000 ppm (spiked at 12,000). The IR camera video was very impressive, with dark cloud of vapors without filter pillows, to very light, (almost non-detectable) source with filter pillows in place. More test are forthcoming, including accurate flow rate (estimate of 5 cfm), H2S reductions and Telp tets for Benzene levels. The tank battery has (3) 500 barrel oil tanks and (1) water tank single manifold to a Enardo Valve set at 8oz.
