Pollution Control

Emissions and pollution from industrial processes are areas of intense global focus. Engineers today work on innovative ways to reduce, capture and control many undesirable byproducts. Energy and process industry companies use ANSYS solutions to assist them in areas related to clean air and water, sustainable design, vapor capture, flaring equipment,  and carbon reduction and capture. Environmental stewardship enables many companies to drive process optimization and capital investment decisions.
