UniversalAET Emissions Treatment Systems Minimize Harmful Gases, Equivalent to Eliminating Thousands of Cars From Roads

UniversalAET strives to be sustainable in every aspect of its business. When it comes to our custom exhaust silencer systems, our engineers are constantly exploring new and improved technology to minimize pollution and make clean air the priority.

Each year, we prevent 218,000 pounds of carbon monoxide from being released into our system through catalytic technology in our custom designs. This is equivalent to eliminating 878 passenger vehicles and their accompanying emissions from our roadways. 

In addition, UniversalAET’s custom exhaust silencers have prevented the generation of 58,000 pounds of hydrocarbons. This is equivalent to 2,037 cars* no longer emitting pollution in our environment.

UniversalAET designs emissions treatment system solutions for turbine and engine applications in the Power Generation and Oil & Gas industries. There are several assumptions used in calculating this data, primarily, that all of these exhaust silencers have been utilized as standby power at a usage of approximately 100 hours per year. In fact, several of our projects were designed for full production environments, and if fully commissioned at this time, they will be running more consistently than a standby unit, significantly reducing the CO and hydrocarbons over the estimation above.
