VOC:CO Abatement

As a supplier of catalyst and process technology, Applied Catalysts can help customers source catalysts and chemicals in many areas.

Replacement Catalysts for VOC Abatement

VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and CO (Carbon Monoxide) are perfect applications for catalytic oxidation by the use of the Applied Catalysts family of Abate VOC™ catalysts.  Many Industrial Air Pollution Control applications can employ the use of catalysts.  Depending on the type of system being designed by the OEM, the proper selection of catalyst is critical to ensure a trouble free installation and to minimize maintenance intervals.


Carbon monoxide is very easily oxidized with the use of catalysts, at temperatures below 212°F (100°C).  Contrary to that, thermal oxidation requires very high temperatures in excess of 1700°F (925°C).  For some RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidation) applications, either process or burner CO can take a customer out of compliance with their air permit, so temperatures need to be increased substantially which puts wear and tear on your materials of construction of the RTO.


Retrofitting with catalyst to turn the RTO into an RCO (Regenerative Catalytic Oxidation), is very easy to do, and the operating temperature can drop below 800°F or even lower depending on the VOC’s present in addition to the CO.  This will cut operating costs of fuel and electricity (lower temperature = lower pressure drop), and will lengthen the life of your system due to the much lower thermal stress on the materials of construction.


Contact Applied Catalysts to discuss VOC/CO abatement or to find out about an RTO retrofit to an RCO.

Product Types for Emission Control

Activated Carbon Monolith

In chemical process applications, ACMC® catalysts can be used for continuous hydrogenation reactions in many areas where traditional GACC (granular activated carbon catalysts) are currently used.

Monolithic Catalysts

Our monolithic solutions include activated carbon, ceramic, and metallic catalysts that have great applications for engine emissions control and industrial air pollution.

Particulate Systems

Our particulate systems include extrudates, precious metal spheres and saddles for regenerative air pollution control.  Enjoy benefits like 95% heat recovery.


We offer unique designs, such as our ceramic honeycomb, that provides excellent benefits including high resistance to thermal shock and solid thermal mass for effective heat exchange.
