Abstract:

CFCS EMITTED AS PURGE STREAMS FORM LARGE INDUSTRIAL REFRIGERATORS ARE A CONSIDERABLE ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM AND AN ECONOMIC LOSS. MEMBRANE ORGANIC VAPOR RECOVERY SYSTEMS APPEAR TO BE ABLE TO TREAT THESE STREAMS. A MEMBRANE UNIT COULD RECOVER CFC FOR REUSE IN THE REFRIGERATOR, AND PRODUCEA CFC-DEPLETED AIRSTREAM FOR VENTING. IN THE PHASE I PROGRAM, EXISTING MEMBRANES WOULD BE FABRICATED INTO HIGH-PRESSURE MODULES AND EVALUATED WITH MODEL CFC/AIR STREAMS. IN A PHASE II PROGRAM, A LABORATORY PROTOTYPE SYSTEM WOULD BE CONSTRUCTED AND OPERATED OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS AND FOR SUFFICIENT TIME TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNIT'S RELIABILITY.
