The Applied Catalyst Activated Carbon Monolith (ACM) can be used for CO2 capture, H2S adsorption, and hydrocarbon adsorption. The porosity and high surface area of activated carbon is sufficient to allow for long-term capture and subsequent de-adsorption of various gases.
Applied Catalysts has a unique activated carbon monolith based catalyst (ACMC, link to Flyer) based on Applied Ceramic carbon honeycomb (ACM). The ACM has been commercialized in a number of gas adsorption applications, such as for evaporative emission control in automobiles. The ACMC catalysts can be used in most applications where catalysts are carbon supported with advantages for continuous process chemistries in flow reactors.
After the proliferation of the Clean Air Act in 1970, the catalytic converter for automobiles was introduced as probably the most important technology in History to clean air pollution worldwide. Removing Carbon monoxide (CO), Hydrocarbons (HC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), the catalysts contributed substantially to the elimination or reduction of smog in major cities in the USA and Worldwide.
The Applied Catalyst Activated Carbon Monolith (ACM) and Activated Carbon Monolith Catalyst (ACMC) are used in commercial and residential systems for air purification. Over time, HVAC systems recirculate a wide array of nuisance substances such as allergens, bacteria, mold spores, and volatile organic compounds in the form of smoke or odors. The Activated Carbon Monolith has the ability to capture and trap those substances to prevent them from being recirculated in the air that you and your loved ones breathe.
There are many options when choosing a type of system to control Industrial Air Pollution, in particular VOC (volatile organic compound emissions). While thermal oxidation is a method used quite often, catalytic oxidation remains amongst the lowest total cost of ownership methodology for abating VOC’s. Applied Catalysts manufactures a full portfolio of catalysts, trademarked Abate VOC, on varied supports. Depending on the application or style of catalytic oxidizer to be employed, ceramic or metal monolith,...
