During the combustion process, engines produce harmful emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), and greenhouse gase(GHG’s) such as CO2 and unburnt hydrocarbons.

Additional processes used when moving natural gas from its source to the market result in the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes). Reducing GHG emissions and the venting of other VOCs to the environment is an important global issue and remains a top priority for industries across Canada, especially with stricter upcoming Government regulations.

In addition to these environmental costs, a large contributor to the operational costs of natural gas processing is the cost of fuel used to run engines and compressors. Spartan Controls, in conjunction with REM Technology, has developed engine management and vent capture technologies that reroute and utilize vented hydrocarbons as supplementary fuel, reducing the amount of process gas required.

To date, Spartan’s REMVue® and SlipStream® technologies have removed a total of 644,000 tonnes of CO2(e) from the environment, which translates to removing 130,000* cars from the road.
