Whitebeam specialises in managing air pollution using catalytic converters for cooking and biomass combustion. From our base in Slovenia we design and test catalytic converters and then supply them to appliance manufacturers worldwide.
Catalytic converters are not just for engines
Whitebeam designs and supplies catalytic converters to reduce fumes produced by cooking and biomass combustion processes. Catalytic converters are an effective technology to reduce fumes emitted from foodstuffs during cooking, and also those which result from the combustion of biomass, which is often used to heat buildings, water or to generate electricity. The pollutants which can be reduced include carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter and oxides of nitrogen. Popular applications which use catalytic converters to reduce their emissions include rapid-cook ovens, charcoal ovens, wood stoves and boilers.
