  • Control of Aerosol Contaminants in Indoor Air: Combining the Particle Concentration Reduction with Microbial Inactivation

    ABSTRACT An indoor air purification technique, which combines unipolar ion emission and photocatalytic oxidation (promoted by a specially designed RCI cell), was investigated in two test chambers, 2.75 m3 and 24.3 m3, using nonbiological and biological challenge aerosols. The reduction in particle concentration was measured size selectively in realtime, and the Air Cleaning Factor and the Clean ...

  • Controlling odors from creosote utilizing foam-based technology

    From approximately 1910 until the mid-1950s, a creosote plant operated on a 50 acre site in Manville, New Jersey. During its operation, the wood treatment facility treated railroad ties with creosote and discharged the excess creosote via canals to two waste lagoons located on the site. After treatment, wood was stored in areas of the site where excess creosote dripped onto surface soils and ...
