Izomax – Zeroing in to reduce emissions
The Izomax AOGV mechanical isolation system has a direct impact on reductions around Drainage, Venting, Purging and Flushing by:
- Limiting or totally avoiding volumes to be gas-freed
- Minimizing or negating requirements for storage or transport of drained inventory
- Reducing or mitigating the disposal of unwanted fluids
- Nullify or significantly reduce release of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) to the environment
- Remove or materially reduce the requirement for inert gas
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates:
- More than 70,000 tons per year of VOCs are emitted from equipment leaks in the U.S. each year*
- More than 9,000 tons per year of HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) are emitted from equipment leaks in the U.S. each year*
- 62% of uncontrolled VOC emissions come from leaking valves at a typical facility*
- 31% of uncontrolled VOC emissions come from leaking connectors at a typical facility*
*As published in “LDAR Best practices guide”
Our mission is to create value through brilliant engineering with an uncompromised attitude towards safety and ethics.
At Izomax we take sustainability seriously. We deliver products and services that significantly reduce emissions, through truly innovative alternatives to traditional technologies. But, sustainability is so much more, and we are committed to do more.
We are now in the process of developing our sustainability strategy and will integrate this into our company strategy by H2 2023. We believe that we all need to take responsibility for sustainable development, and that Izomax has an important role wherever we work.
The foundation of our business model is a value-based culture, with employee ownership and risk management as integral pathways into which sustainability will be embedded. Izomax is currently entering agreements with partners to ensure sustainability becomes a part of our culture, ensuring ownership amongst our employees with guidelines on how they can make a difference, in addition to including sustainability in our risk management processes.
We want to be transparent about our product’s value chain and the actual impact we have – our true sustainability. We are currently negotiating an agreement with an independent institute who will analyse, research, and verify our baseline and monitor our continual journey towards Net Zero.
