TIGG Methyl Bromide Recapture System Meets USDA Standards

TIGG Corporation announced that the TIGG Methyl Bromide Recapture System meets and in some installations exceeds the specification set by the USDA-APHIS.

| December 16, 2009

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — TIGG Corporation announced that the TIGG Methyl Bromide Recapture System meets and in some installations exceeds the specification set by the USDA-APHIS.

For several years, the USDA-ARS has directed research toward the development of methyl bromide alternatives and methyl bromide recapture systems. Recently, the “Methyl Bromide Quarantine and Preshipment Interim National Management Strategy” was presented by the United States at the Twenty-first Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in early November 2009. The Management Strategy, on the United Nations Environment Programme website, gives USDA-APHIS requirements for methyl bromide recapture systems.

The TIGG Methyl Bromide Recapture System complies with these requirements by reducing emissions by at least 80%, retaining approved fumigation and aeration times mandated by the PPQ treatment manual and reducing the methyl bromide concentration in emissions to under 500 ppm.

TIGG Corporation engineered and manufactured the TIGG Methyl Bromide Recapture System through a cooperative program between GFK Consulting LTD, USDA-ARS and Great Lakes Corporation (now Chemtura). During development, the Methyl Bromide Recapture System was proven in laboratory and pilot scale tests and has since operated successfully in commercial installations throughout the United States. 

Current commercial installations in the United States include the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, GW Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, a cargo facility in Mississippi and a major California packer and shipper for air-freighting berries to Japan.
 
TIGG Corporation, headquartered in Oakdale, PA (near Pittsburgh), designs and fabricates systems that use activated carbon and other purification media to treat water, wastewater, air and process streams. They are also manufacturers of steel tanks and pressure vessels.  TIGG Corporation is a certified Woman Owned Small Business.
