CPL CONCORDIA boasts over 50 years of experience in the natural gas management industry and provides a fully reliable, global odourisation service. Qualified personnel and proper equipment ensure the utmost safety at all stages of the gas odourisation process.
The odourising substance is tetrahydrothiophene (THT 99%) or a mixture of mercaptans (TBM 75%), and is stored in IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers) with capacities ranging from 2 to 5 cubic metres. The warehouse for odourant in Concordia, Modena has a capacity of 46 tonnes of tetrahydrothiophene (THT 99%) and 50 tonnes of mercaptan mixture (TBM 75%).
The odourising product is transferred into barrels to facilitate and speed up delivery and transfer operations. Efficient automatic detection, suction and vapour filtering systems ensure environmental safety.
CPL CONCORDIA offers an exhaustive range of odourising and neutralising products, as well as a filling service for plants that uses a patented system to avoid spills.
The product put in the market complies with standard UNI ISO 14001:2004.
Odourless transport of odourising substances occurs through special vehicles approved for the carriage of dangerous goods under the European ADR agreement, which must be driven by personnel that holds a special licence for the transport of toxic gases. Products are transported inside standard vessels (barrels holding from 50 to 200 litres, bulk containers holding from 1,200 to 2,000 litres), or in tank trucks (with capacities ranging from 10,000 to 30,000 litres).
Managing empty barrels and obsolete odourising equipment requires great caution and special approvals, as they are considered as special waste. CPL CONCORDIA has the necessary certifications and equipment to transport two types of special waste:
In order to perform this kind of service, CPL CONCORDIA is certified in transport of waste (authorisation no. BO1502 of 25 May 2011) and in waste disposal and treatment (Res. No. 121 of 14 May 2013).
