Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF AIR STRIPPING PROCESSES THROUGH ENHANCED AIR/WATER CONTACTING. THE SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM WILL ENSURE OPTIMUM USE OF CONTACTOR VOLUME AND MAXIMUM CONCENTRATION OF STRIPPED SOLUTE IN EXHAUST AIR. THE SUGGESTED NOVEL PROCESS COMBINES KNOWN TECHNOLOGIES. GROUND WATERS ARE FREQUENTLY INFILTRATED BY VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC'S). MANY INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES PRODUCE VOC CONTAMINATED WASTEWATERS. AIR STRIPPING IS ACCEPTED AS BEING EFFECTIVE. PROCESSES TO-DATE ARE CONSIDERED LESS THAN ACCEPTABLE MAINLY DUE TO INEFFICIENT GAS/LIQUID CONTACTING. THE PROPOSED PROCESS COMBINES KNOWN TECHNOLOGIES TO SIGNIFICANTLY AUGMENT THE MASS TRANSFER INTERFACE. BESIDES OVERCOMING THE ABOVE MENTIONED DEFICIENCIES, THE PROCESS IS EXPECTED TO REDUCE ENERGY USE AND EASE DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING OF EXHAUST GASES. PHASE I WORK IS PLANNED TO SHOW TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE PROCESS IN A SMALL SCALE APPARATUS AND OBTAIN DATA FOR PILOT PLANT DESIGN AND DEMONSTRATE IN PHASE II.
