Custom Abatement Solutions for the Electronics Industry

Anguil Environmental provides highly-engineered, environmental equipment and service solutions that help clients solve complex industrial air and water challenges across the globe. For over 40 years, Anguil has been committed to protecting the environment with unmatched engineering, innovative equipment, guaranteed compliance and reliable service. 

On air pollution control applications, Anguil handles the design, manufacturing, service and installation of thermal and catalytic oxidizers for the destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), process odors and Nitrous Oxides (NOX). Anguil also specializes in energy recovery systems that reduce a company’s operating costs, lower their carbon footprint and decrease energy consumption by utilizing waste heat from manufacturing processes.

For wastewater treatment applications, Anguil provides turnkey systems that target solid or liquid pollutants from industrial and remediation applications.  As a custom solution company, we can integrate a range of technologies with proven techniques to meet specific site challenges. 

 Press Releases

  • Large Semiconductor Chip Fabricator Reduces Environmental Impact, Maintains Productivity, and Saves Big on Operational Costs.

    Project Highlights:
    • Client needed an abatement system with  over 100,000 SCFM (160,500 Nm3/hr) volume processing capacity and over 98% VOC removal efficiency
    • Anguil compiled a system of a rotor concentrator wheel, custom-designed thermal oxidizer with a destruction efficiency rate (DRE) of >99.5%, and a specialized heat exchanger
    • Each system was able to meet and exceed the processing capacity and destruction efficiency requested, with the processing capacity double that of the two previous systems combined

    The Challenge

    As a large semiconductor chip fabricator, this customer realized the environmental effects of their operation. The fabrication of semiconductor chips generates significant amounts of wastewater and waste gases, both of which require treatment prior to their release into the sewer system or atmosphere, respectively. As fabrication operations have grown, so too has the amount of waste produced and, consequently, the need for abatement technology.

    The customer approached our team with a request for a new abatement system for their plants. They came to us to stay ahead of their competition by tackling the challenge of reducing their environmental impact without sacrificing their facilities’ productivity and output. While they were currently employing the use of two systems, each with capacities for less than 50,000 SCFM (80,250 Nm3/hr), they were looking for a more efficient and effective solution. Ultimately, they were seeking a system that doubled their SCFM volume processing capacity with a 98% VOC removal level.

    Their exact system requirements were as follows:

    • >100,000 SCFM (160,500 Nm3/hr) volume processing capacity in a single system with the same footprint as the two existing pollution control devices
    • >98% VOC removal efficiency
    • No upstream pressure fluctuations

    The Solution

    SemiconductorAfter reviewing the customer’s requirements and discussing the project objectives with the customer, our team decided that rotor concentrator thermal oxidizers (RCTO) would be the ideal air pollution control solution. The solution that was designed and constructed featured a zeolite rotor concentrator wheel sized to handle more than 100,000 SCFM (160,500 Nm3/hr) of process air and a custom-designed thermal recuperative oxidizer (TO) with a destruction efficiency rate (DRE) of >99.5% and specialized heat exchanger constructed to minimize silica build-up and facilitate maintenance operations.

    Once fully assembled, all three systems were installed on mezzanine levels of the existing plants. After installation, our technicians completed final commissioning and provided comprehensive operator training. Ultimately, the customer was left with a system that met their needs and a team trained to properly use that equipment.

    The Result

    At the end of the project, the customer was fully satisfied with the performance of all three systems. Each system was able to meet and exceed the processing capacity and destruction efficiency requested, with the processing capacity double that of the two previous systems combined and the destruction efficiency surpassing that of the one required.

    Additionally, by replacing their old air pollution systems with our more effective and efficient system, the customer was able to save on floor space and operational costs.



  • Air Pollution Control Systems
    Abatement systems for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from LCD Coating & Laminating, Wafer Fabrication, Chip Production and Lithography....

  • Processes like semiconductor wafer fabrication use a number of chemicals to etch the surface of individual silicon wafers.  Many of these chemicals contain VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and HAPs (Hazardous Air Pollutants) which evaporate into the airspace of the tool.  When released into the atmosphere these pollutants contribute to smog and ozone depletion as well as the destruction of agriculture and forests.  In humans they can cause birth defects, nervous system damage, respiratory ailments, heart conditions and, during massive accidental releases, death.  To meet EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and other national regulations for air pollution control, the emission laden air needs to be captured and treated before being released into the atmosphere.

    As is the case with many industrial manufacturing operations, emissions are best destroyed through the use of thermal or catalytic oxidation.  These devices use temperature, time and turbulence to convert VOCs and HAPs into Carbon Dioxide (CO2), heat and water vapor.  Historically, the semiconductor industry has used rotor concentrators in-line with the oxidation device to convert the large volume, low concentration streams into a lower volume, highly concentrated stream. 

    During system operation, the tool exhaust is sent from the process and drawn into the concentrator where pollutants are removed from the air by adsorption. The cleaned air passes through the absorbent and is discharged to atmosphere.  The rotor turns continuously to transport adsorbed emissions into the desorption section before returning regenerated zeolite to the process.  The concentrated air stream is sent to the oxidizer where the VOCs and HAPs are destroyed.  The energy content of highly concentrated emissions contributes to the oxidation process, thus reducing the supplemental energy requirements.  Concentrators reduce the size of the abatement device, lower operating costs and minimize energy input. 

    Anguil Environmental Systems has been supplying oxidation and concentrator technologies to industry for nearly 40 years.  Some of the advantages of Anguil abatement systems on semiconductor applications include:

    • Single system capacity of 170,000 SCFM (Standard Cubic Feet per Minute)
    • Low pressure fluctuations for sensitive processes like wafer production
    • High destruction efficiencies (99%)

    Headquartered in the United States, Anguil also has fabrication facilities and installation capabilities in Europe, Asia, and Australia as well as an extensive network of agents located domestically and throughout the world.
