Powerful Industrial Air Cleaners for Soil Vapor Intrusion

Vapor Intrusion is an emerging problem in North America.

The phrase "soil vapor intrusion" refers to the process by which chemicals move from an underground source into the indoor air of the buildings above.

The chemicals seep into the soil and enter a building though cracks in basement floors and walls or openings around pipes or wires.

As a result of a difference in pressure, a building’s HVAC system can actually draw these chemical vapors into a building.

Electrocorp works with environmental consultants to provide industrial air cleaning solutions for facilities and residential dwellings affected by vapor intrusion.

Contact an Electrocorp air quality representative today for more information on vapor intrusion and our advanced activated carbon filtration systems designed to safely remove chemicals, gases, fumes and odors.

Air Quality and Liability: Illinois worker wins $30 million verdict in diacetyl popcorn chemical lawsuit

The cost of occupational chemical exposure is rising for American industry.

A jury in Chicago has awarded $30.4 million dollars to a chemical-flavoring plant worker disabled by exposure to diacetyl, an ingredient in butter flavoring used at a popcorn plant where several workers claimed similar injury.

The verdict awarded to Gerardo Solis, 45, and against BASF Corp., the world’s largest chemical company and a supplier of diacetyl.

Solis worked at a Flavorchem Corp. plant in the Chicago area between the years 1998 and 2006 when he was diagnosed with a rare lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans. McClain said Solis is totally disabled with 25 percent of normal lung capacity and is projected to require a lung transplant within the next 10 years.
