Barge & Ship Degassing: For Cleaning, Product Change or Maintenance

Degassing of barges and ships are similar to tanks on land in that they contain VOCs that require control and destruction pursuant to local and federal Clean Air Act regulations. Envent Corporation’s marine vapor control systems meet the stringent requirements of the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Envent combines the best of both worlds: an abiding commitment to safety and a high-efficiency fleet that is quickly mobilized and USCG Certified. This allows our team to deploy the quickest possible degassing solution so that your dock side down time is minimized. Dockside degassing is a highly regulated job and Envent’s experienced operators know exactly how to safely handle these assignments. Additionally, Envent holds permits and certifications in most major air districts and impacted states.
