Abstract
FOUR NOVEL PROCESSES FOR THE CONTROL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC EMISSIONS ARE PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION. THE FIRST OF THESE IS BASED ON SCRUBBING THE VOLATILE ORGANICS WITH AN OXIDATION RESISTANT LIQUID WHICH IS REGENERATED BY AQUEOUS PHASE OXIDATION USING A STRONG OXIDANT. A SECOND PROCESS ISBASED ON USE OF A NOVEL OXIDATION CATALYST WHICH WILL ENABLETHE LOW TEMPERATURE CONVERSION OF VOLATILE ORGANICS TO NON-REACTIVE, NON-TOXIC COMPOUNDS. THE THIRD IS BASED ON USE OF SOLUBILITY PARAMETERS AND HARD AND SOFT ACID AND BASECONSIDERATIONS TO ENABLE OPTIMAL ABSORBENT SELECTION FOR RECOVERY OF VOLATILE ORGANICS. THE FOURTH IS BASED ON FUEL OIL SCRUBBING TO CONTROL THE VOLATILE ORGANIC EMISSIONS AND ENABLE RECOVERY OF THEIR HEATING VALUE. A COMBINATION OF EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTIC WORK IS PROPOSED TO ENABLE EVALUATION OF THE RELATIVE MERITS OF THESE PROCESSES.
