Fumigation Emissions Controls
Large Scale Emissions Control

We provide the largest methyl bromide emissions controls systems in the world.

Value Recovery is an engineering services firm that provides solutions to customers desiring large scale, up to 300,000 ft3 (8,500 m3),  emissions controls of their Quarantine and Pre-shipment fumigation operations.  With our project engineering partners, we design, build and start-up custom facilities to control the emissions of methyl bromide emitted from fumigation operations before it reaches the atmosphere and then chemically destroy the methyl bromide with our patented technology before it harms workers, bystanders or the ozone layer.   


The efficiency of our systems has been shown to be greater than 94% chemical destruction of methyl bromide and has been documented in four independent California state sanctioned source tests.  We provide a performance guarantee that ensures customers of on-going performance.

Our follow-up maintenance and support plan ensures customers of on-going help and guidance with regulatory and community concerns.  Commercial facilities that use our system have been operating for four years.  Our scale-up is based on a first principals chemical engineering design and implementation that reflects the Presidents', Peter Joyce, 35 years of technology development in the chemical industry. 

Methyl bromide is an ozone depleting substance and destroys ozone in the upper atmosphere that protects from Ultra-Violet rays from the sun that cause skin cancer. Here you can find more on the methyl bromide issue.



Through 2021, our installations in California and Florida have scrubbed out over 125 tons of methyl bromide emitted in over 3,800 fumigation cycles encompassing nine years of operation.
