activated carbon odour Articles

  • What is Activated Carbon?

    Adsorption with activated carbon can apply. The more awareness people have of the Earth, the more applications activated carbons will have. is thus a commonly seen process in applications such as gas masks, space capsules, nuclear plants and so forth, in which the removal of gases is highly needed. ...

  • Removal of taste and odour from potable water by ozone and Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC)

    The paper presents experimental evidence that selection and addition of an appropriate type of Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) and alternatively or in combination ozonation of the water can be very effective in removal of both geosmin and 2-MIB from surface waters intended for supplying potable water. According to the experimental results, it was shown that the adsorptive capacity of the carbon ...

  • Top 3 Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is an effective purifier. It is used to remove organic pollutants from different gaseous, liquid and solid substances. By removing the undesirable organic compounds, activated carbon can successfully remove the odour and taste of these compounds from a wide range of things.  Unlike other purification agents that react with organic compounds and change their nature, activated ...

  • Ozonation and Granular Activated Carbon Filtration the Solution to Many Problems

    This paper explains how ozone is used in the purification of surface water to potable water both as the first treatment stage and as an intermediary stage for the reduction of organics and as a disinfectant. Taste and odour of the water are improved by the oxidation of both organic and inorganic impurities by ozone. Products resulting from algae metabolisms are shown to be easily oxidised by ...

  • Waste Transfer Station Odours - Case Study

    Application Greenstar Ltd. who operate the large waste transfer station at Ballyogan needed to ensure working conditions inside the building were acceptable to the workforce and that the surrounding area did not suffer from odourous emissions. An early part of the design process called for an efficient extraction system to draw air from the Reception Hall and the Baling Hall to meet these ...

  • Is H2S a suitable process indicator for odour abatement performance of sewer odours?

    Odour abatement units are typically designed and maintained on H2S concentrations, but operational failures are reported in terms of overall odour removal, suggesting a wide range of malodorous compounds emitted from sewers that may not be efficiently removed by existing odour abatement processes. Towards providing greater insight into this issue, several activated carbon filters and biofilters ...

  • Odour Control at Pesticide Facilities: Eliminating volatile compounds

    Chemical formulation plants are susceptible to emissions of unpleasant and malodorous volatile compounds, a fact which makes the implementation of efficient odour control measures essential. North-western Spain is home to one of the country's oldest industrial sites for the manufacture of phytosanitary products, with some facilities located relatively close to populated areas. Recently, the ...

  • Performance of sanitary sewer collection system odour control devices operating in diverse conditions

    Controlling odours from sanitary sewer systems is challenging as a result of the expansive nature of these systems. Addition of oxidizing chemicals is often practiced as a mitigation strategy. One alternative is to remove odorous compounds in the gases vented from manholes using adsorptive media. In this study, odour control devices located at manholes were observed to determine the ability of ...

  • Evaluating odour control technologies using reliability and sustainability criteria – a case study for water treatment plants

    Technologies for odour control have been widely reviewed and their optimal range of application and performance has been clearly established. Selection criteria, mainly driven by process economics, are usually based on the air flow volume, the inlet concentrations and the required removal efficiency. However, these criteria are shifting with social and environmental issues becoming as important ...

  • Odour control on waste water treatment plants and pumping stations using DMT biotrickling filtration

    Lengthy detention times and warm weather / climate leads to septic waste water producing copious amounts of not only hydrogen sulphide, but also ammonia, organic sulphides, mercaptans, bringing numerous odour complaints on waste water treatment plants ( WWTP’s ) and pumping stations. An odour abatement unit therefore will have to treat not only hydrogen sulphide, but also other pollutants ...

  • Treatment of leachate using the DMT MemBioRex® technology

    One of the most difficult waste waters to treat is leachate from a landfill. Leachate is water from the degrading waste and rainfall which percolates through the waste. Leachate usually contains a high concentration of ammonium, low concentrations of phosphor, high salinity, high alkalinity and various concentrations of heavy metals. Combined with strongly fluctuating flows, a high pH and ever ...

  • Ultraviolet Light Oxidation of Free-Chlorine in Water

    Chlorine is the most frequently used chemical for water disinfection. Many industrial and commercial manufacturing facilities cannot tolerate the introduction of chlorine into the process because of contamination and unwanted chemical reactions. Chlorine affects the flavour and odour of drinks and fluids, accelerates corrosion on process vessels and piping, and can also damage delicate process ...

  • Low energy mixing to optimize anaerobic digestion at the Kitchener WWTP

    The existing Kitchener Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is a conventional secondary treatment facility, with a rated capacity of 122,745 mVd. The plant is comprised of two separate secondary treatment plants (Plant 1 and Plant 2) served by a common headworks facilities and primary clarifier facilities. Plant 1 was constructed in the early 1960s and Plant 2 was constructed in the mid-1970s. Both ...

  • The Use Of UV For Dechlorination

    For many years chemical disinfection techniques have been used to provide microbiologically pure water for industrial and domestic use.
