Breaking News: EPA’s Final Rule on Ethylene Oxide Emissions Reduction

Exciting developments are underway in the fight against ethylene oxide emissions! The EPA has announced a game-changing final rule aimed at slashing toxic emissions of ethylene oxide, significantly reducing cancer risks across communities. Read the EPA’s full announcement here.

Here at Carus LLC, we’re proud to be at the forefront of this critical mission. Partnering with Picarro Inc., a global leader in gas instrument solutions, we’re thrilled to introduce groundbreaking advancements in ethylene oxide emission reduction.

When it comes to validating the efficiency of our industry-leading catalysts, Carus relies on Picarro’s cutting-edge gas instruments. Together, we’ve strategically planned for the release of the new 2024 Ethylene Oxide National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), conducting rigorous experiments to simulate the behavior of catalytic abatement systems in various industrial settings.

The results speak volumes. Our CARULITE® 500 heated catalyst, when paired with Picarro’s EtO CEMS instrument, has demonstrated unparalleled performance in reducing ethylene oxide emissions to below a part per billion. With an astonishing average destruction efficiency of 99.99988% across a wide range of inlet concentrations, our solution exceeds regulatory requirements by leaps and bounds.

This announcement also marks the release of our co-authored white paper, authored by Picarro’s Jonathan Bent, Ph.D., Senior Technical Applications Lead – Environmental Systems and Carus’s Matthew Bodoff, Business Development Director, Catalysts and Rita Leonard, Research and Development Manager. In this paper, we delve into these groundbreaking findings in detail.

Learn how our innovative abatement products, combined with Picarro’s managed service EtO monitoring solutions, provide facilities with the tools they need to confidently navigate the new-NESHAP world.

At Carus and Picarro, we’re dedicated to revolutionizing ethylene oxide emission reduction, safeguarding public health, and building a cleaner, safer future for all. Join us as we pave the way towards a brighter tomorrow.
