Vapor Phase & Liquid Phase Adsorption Equipment for MGP Remediation

Environmental Remediation of a former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site oftentimes requires both liquid phase and vapor phase activated carbon adsorption solutions due to varied contaminates such as coal tar and other petroleum products.

During the removal of coal-tar impacted soil, environmental enclosure structures safeguard the public from stray odors, air-borne contaminants and the site of workers in moon suits.

Connecting TIGG’s activated carbon NIXTOX Box vapor phase adsorption systems to the remediation enclosure helps you meet discharge requirements and protects workers inside the structure. TIGG has a large supply of in-stock systems that can handle flows from 50 to 20,000 cfm available for sale or ready to rent.

It is also common for Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites to have soil contaminated with various pollutants including PAHs, hydrocarbons, phenols, BTEX and cyanide. These contaminants mix with groundwater, causing a need for activated carbon water purification systems.

Our standard activated carbon water purification systems handle 50 to 750 gpm. TIGG’s Integrated Adsorption Systems can be piped in parallel for higher flows rates. Also, we can custom design equipment for your specific needs. A typical groundwater remediation system may consist of several components including an oil/water separator, particulate filters, oil absorption vessel, activated carbon adsorption vessels, pumps, pipe racks, and hoses.

Case Studies

Pollution Magazine Runs TIGG MGP Article

When an experienced environmental remediation company secured a contract to clean up a former manufactured gas plant in a New York community, the contractor realized the environmental remediation process would require a host of different technologies to address contaminated soil as well as ground and surface water.

TIGG was called upon to provide a solution for treating the contact water because of its ability to meet the company’s requirements of reasonable pricing, immediate rental equipment availability and technical expertise.

TIGG helped rescue the project, which initially employed one of its competitors, who provided inadequate engineering and a solution that was not meeting treatment objectives.

Northeast Utility Manufactured Gas Plant

TIGG provided a 132 x 116 ft temporary structure and two systems to treat vapors generated from manufactured gas plant excavation operations inside the building. Each system treated 20,000 cfm and consisted of an NB20 box adsorber, fan and controls, a separate blower for nighttime operation, interconnecting ductwork, and a sound deadening package.

Manufactured Gas Plant in the Bronx, New York

TIGG provided an oil/water separator, surge tank, pump, bag filters, and two adsorbers containing activated carbon capable of treating 200 gpm. The entire integrated remediation system was trailer mounted and enclosed for protection from the weather.


TIGG has over 40 years of experience in developing a broad range of activated carbon filters, adsorption equipment, and services for environmental remediation all over North America. We develop, design and manufacture equipment for the removal of trace contaminants from air, water, process liquids, and gases.
