The project to eliminate the volatile organic compounds emissions from a wastewater treatment unit at Tabriz Petrochemical Plant in East Azarbaijan Province has been launched as the company moves to help protect the environment and become more eco-friendly.
VOC emissions are considered a serious environmental problem in petrochemical industries. The project, the first of its kind in Iran, was completed at a cost of $2.37 million, the National Petrochemical Company news website Nipna reported.
The project was designed by Sahand University of Technology in Tabriz with financial support from East Azarbaijan’s general administration of environment. 
“In the project, the surface of all open ponds have been covered with special aluminum sheets and flow of VOCs is sucked from the ponds via a network of pumps, transferred to furnaces, and burned there,” the managing director of Tabriz Petrochemical Plant said.
