Evaluate the use of UV technology in Oil and Gas applications to selectively eliminate air emissions constituents. UV technology currently used widely in sewage treatment facilities, agricultural odour control in livestock barns and in hospitals for eliminating pathogens in the air.

Determine how UV technology will perform in tank vent gas odour applications, glycol dehydration and as a potential replacement for incinerators.

Sol-Air may provide equipment and labour in-kind.

Project should be two phases; year one would focus on proof of concept and determination of limitations for oil and gas specific applications, year two would be field testing to validate existing technologies.
