A wide and comprehensive range of products and solutions dedicated to petroleum distribution

About us




CARBOVAC is a major player specialized in consulting, engineering, project management and the supply of Hydrocarbon Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) for downstream petroleum industry.
CARBOVAC was created in 2005 by a team composed of VRU experts, who have a strong experience of more than ten years in this area.

Since its induction, CARBOVAC is identified as a reference player but clearly able to differentiate itself on the Vapor Recovery market.

Indeed, by making the choice of focusing only on VRU technology “adsorption (activated carbon) / absorption” and use only the innovative technology of “dry” screw vacuum, CARBOVAC became a game changer with an alternative to liquid ring vacuum pumps, used on most VRU.

The technology of the screw pump is the choice of maximum efficiency, ease of use, optimized power consumption and reduced maintenance costs.



We provide oil industry professionals with our expertise and knowledge to support them in emissions management projects, offering autonomous and efficient solutions.



Become the preferred partner for petroleum professionals in the field of vapor treatment solutions, using screw vacuum pump technology.
