Abstract:

MORE COST EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS (VOCS) FROM INDUSTRIAL EXHAUSTGAS. THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS TO COOL THE GAS WELL BELOW THE DEW POINT OF THE VOCS. NORMALLY, ICE AND DIRT FORM ON THE CONDENSING SURFACE, REDUCING THE HEAT TRANSFER RATE, REQUIRING SHUT-DOWN AND PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE. ENERGY INNOVATION, INC.'S, INNOVATION WILL ELIMINATE THESE REQUIREMENTS. MATHEMATICAL MODELS WILL BE GENERATED AND EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED FOR VERIFICATION OF THE PROPOSED THEORY. THE OBJECT OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING A RELIABLE, COMPACT VOC RECOVERY SYSTEM WITH A SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION OF ENERGY REQUIREMENTS.
