Value Recovery employs proprietary technology to convert hazardous byproducts
like methyl chloride, allyl bromide, phenol, acrylate, and cyanide found in either
air or dilute water streams to useful chemicals. Benefits of this technology are:
||Generation of new revenue
from the creation of a saleable product out of previously wasted byproducts
||Cost avoidance from
not having to incinerate organic wastes that contain halogens (chlorine,
bromine, iodine) or are highly water soluble organic anions that (economically)
resist traditional removal methods.
The compelling technical feature of the phase transfer catalytic
process is that it brings together reactants from separate phases that would
not normally interact and catalyzes their reaction. The reactions have been
known for years and follow well understood mechanisms. For environmental applications,
the catalysts are relatively cheap and are stable enough to be recycled within
