  • Reducing Odor and VOC Emissions

    The Montgomery County Regional Composting Facility (MCRCF) in Silver Spring, Maryland is designed to process 400 wet tons/day of lime amended biosolids from the Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Washington, D.C. Recently, political pressures forced operations to cease at the MCRCF. Although the aerated static pile composting plant’s fate has not been completely decided, its owner, ...

  • Case Study: Odor Abatement Solutions

    Odor issues related to industrial processes are not uncommon.  An odor is caused by one or more volatilized organic compounds (VOCs) that humans can perceive by the sense of smell.  The challenge is that “odor is subjective, and what is sweet to some, can be a nuisance to others.   In most cases the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Control VOCs and Odors

    Manufactured gas plants (MGPs) have kept cities Iighted and fueled since the Industrial Revolution. Today, cleaning up these sites presents a special challenge because of the potential for release ofVOCs and odors. Fortunately, remediation professionals have several effective emission control technologies to choose from. Where are they located? The historical record of MGPs in the United States ...

  • An assessment of urban VOC emissions and concentrations by comparing model results and measurements

    From September 1994 to June 1996, the city of Antwerp carried out a volatile organic compound (VOC) measurement campaign in the urban agglomeration of Antwerp. The results were used to further validate a traffic emission model for the city of Antwerp and to evaluate the performance of three different "street canyon" models that were applied to calculate benzene concentrations at ten ...

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

    Three technologies that are most commonly used to treat nonhalogenated 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 ...

  • Stack gas VOC monitoring

    POLLUTION S.r.l. manufactures POLARIS FID analyzer, a cutting-edge technology for the measurement of total hydrocarbons in ambient air and stack emission monitoring in accordance with EN 13526 and EN 12619. This analyser is based on Flame Ionization Detection (FID), a reference method technique to measure total hydrocarbons (THC, VOC, TOC). Polaris FID is a very handy instrument because it allows ...

  • A Comparison of Three Wastewater Collection System VOC Emissions Models

    Three models were compared to determine their ability to accurately predict emissions from two wastewater collection system components; gravity flow reaches and drop structures. Models investigated included the INTERCEPTOR Model, TOXCHEM+ and WATER9.Data used to perform the analysis were obtained from published literature. A total of 128 individual runs per model were completed in performing the ...

  • Optimizing VOC Combustion - Case Study

    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are pre-cursors to Ozone pollution and subject to EPA regulations. Thermal and catalytic oxidizers are routinely used to destroy VOC emissions from a variety of industrial sources. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Investigation of the effects of temperature and sludge characteristics on odors and VOC emissions during the drying process of sewage sludge

    Sludge drying is a necessary step for sludge disposal. In this study, sludge was collected from two wastewater treatment plants, and dried at different temperatures in the laboratory. The emission of odor and total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) during the sludge drying process were determined by an online odor monitoring system. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in off-gas were analyzed ...
