  • Control VOC`s in Refinery Wastewater

    Oil and water do not mix, like many of life’s one-liners this statement is basically true but not the whole story. Many hydrocarbon liquids, particularly aromatics, have significant solubilities in water: Benzene 1800 PPMVToluene 470Ethyl Benzene 150Xylenes 150 Petroleum refineries do not like salts in their feedstock since these corrode and foul process equipment. The first refining step is ...

  • Potential of biofiltration for VOCs emission control and safety aspects

    Directive 99/13/EC on the emission of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) is impacting on several industries in Italy, as well in other EU countries. Many small enterprises have to invest in new control systems and need to be helped to choose an appropriate and safe technology. As VOCs are highly flammable compounds, high concentrations in emission flows can pose a fire and explosion hazard if ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with nonhalogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific ...

  • Intellisenc Building Air Quality Controllers control CO2, CO, VOC, O3, Humidity and temerpature.

    The quality of the air we breathe indoor (Indoor Air Quality, IAQ) is typically defined by the air chemical or gas composition and particulates. The sensors available today for sensing the gas composition of IAQ have many features and options. There is a wide application base for IAQ sensing with the most common being the regulation of HVAC ventilation systems for lower energy cost. Using an IAQ ...


  • High VOC Loadings in Biofilters - Petroleum and Industrial Applications

    ABSTRACTMore cost effective alternate technologies are needed to meet the demands of existing and upcoming Federal air regulations. Bio-Reaction Industries, Inc. (BRI) has developed a patented, modular, high-rate, vapor-phase biofilter that has provided such a solution for a major oil company for the past four years. This compact system has adsorbed and digested high VOC surge concentrations ...


  • Biofiltration of hydrophobic VOCs pretreated with UV photolysis and photocatalysis

    The effects of pretreatments on the biofiltration of gas phase α-pinene, a poorly water soluble Volatile Organic Compound (VOC), was evaluated in a controlled and long-term experimental investigation. Ultraviolet (UV) photolysis and photocatalysis were used and compared as pretreatment techniques. A control experiment involving biofiltration alone allowed for the direct evaluation of the coupled ...

  • Eliminating VOC From Wood Industry Processes

    ELIMINATING VOC FROM WOOD INDUSTRY PROCESSES As regulations controlling VOC and the environment become increasingly strict at local, national and international level, manufacturers in an increasing range of industries are having to consider appropriate action. The wood industry is no exception. In the manufacture of moulded wooden doors, for example, wood shavings and sawdust are bonded together ...


  • Biofiltration of VOCs for Paint Manufacturing and Coatings Applications

    Biofilters, long used in Europe for odour control because of low maintenance, energy and operating costs have had a difficult time penetrating the US. The energy crisis and the cry for sustainable technologies have created interest in pollution control devices that reduce emissions and are energy efficient. This paper will discuss technical performance, design factors and economics of a ...

  • Control of VOC emissions from a flexographic printing facility using an industrial biotrickling filter

    The study of an industrial unit of biotrickling filter for the treatment of the exhaust gases of a flexographic facility was investigated over a 2-year period with the objective to meet the volatile organic compound (VOC) regulatory emission limits. Increasing the water flow rate from 2 to 40 m3 h−1 improved the performance of the process, meeting the VOC regulation when 40 m3 h−1 were used. An ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated VOCs in Air Emissions/ Off-Gases

    Three technologies that are most commonly used to treat halogenated VOCs in air emissions/off-gases are carbon adsorption, catalytic oxidation, and thermal oxidation. Carbon adsorption is a remediation technology in which pollutants are removed from air by physical adsorption onto the carbon grain. Carbon is 'activated' for this purpose by processing the carbon to create porous particles with a ...
