  3. A LOW COST CATALYTIC CERAMIC FILTER FOR SIMULTANEOUS VOC AND PARTICULATE REMOVAL

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PLANTS ARE SOURCES OF LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) WHICH ARE EMITTED INTO THE AIR, SOMETIMES IN HIGH FLOWS OF OFFGAS. SOME OF THE OFFGAS STREAMS MAY ALSO CONTAIN FINE PARTICULATE MATTER FROM 10 MICRONS TO THE SUBMICRON SIZE RANGE. THE VOC MAY CONDENSE ON THE FINE PARTICULATE MATTER WHICH, DUE TO ITS SIZE, CAN LODGE DEEP WITHIN THE LUNGS. MOST INDUSTRIA ...

  9. WASTE REDUCTION THROUGH BENZENE-FREE POLYMERIZATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    WASTE REDUCTION CAN BE A HIGHLY COST-EFFECTIVE MEANS OF POLLUTION CONTROL, IF ECONOMIC CHANGES IN THE BASIC TECHNOLOGY CAN BE ACHIEVED WHICH FUNDAMENTALLY ALTER THE RAW MATERIALS USED IN THE PROCESS. BENZENE IS USED AS A CLASSICAL REACTION SOLVENT IN MANY ORGANIC CHEMICAL REACTIONS. AS A SOLVENT, RATHER THAN A BASIC REACTANT, IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY ALTERMATE SOLVENT TECHNOLOGIES TO ELIM ...
