Vapor Recovery

Project Description

Dutch shipping company Chemgas is active in the transportation of pressurized chemicals and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). With a unique sea and river going fleet, Chemgas is capable of transferring LPG up to 3500 m³.

Instead of venting gases to the atmosphere, Chemgas installs Vapor Recovery Compressor Installations that convert the gas back to a liquid. Apart of minimizing the ‘escape’ of harmful emissions, the shipment volume is maximized as well.
