  • Patent number: 9046062
    Abstract: A system and method for capturing emissions including a first vent configured to capture a first combustible fluid and an inlet configured to filter a noncombustible, wherein the combustible fluid and the noncombustible fluid are combined to form a diluted stream. A first valve may be in fluid communication with the first vent and the inlet, and the first valve may be configured to receive and control flow of the diluted stream. An engine may be in fluid communication with the first valve and configured to receive and combust the diluted stream.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8632741
    Abstract: A system and method according to which exhaust is directed from a stationary exhaust source and through a burner, and a combustible fluid is vented from at least one combustible fluid source other than the stationary exhaust source. The combustible fluid is captured and directed to flow from the combustible fluid source and towards the burner, and at least air is mixed with the captured combustible fluid to form a mixture. The mixture is introduced into the burner and burned therein to thereby pre-heat the exhaust flowing therethrough. The pre-heated exhaust contacts a catalyst.
