Abstract
THIS PROJECT IS TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A LOW-TEMPERATURE, COSTEFFECTIVE CATALYTIC AIR POLLUTION CONTROL SYSTEM CALLED D-TOX TO DESTROY LOW CONCENTRATION, VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC'S) INCLUDING VOLATILE HALOGENATED ORGANICS (VHOC'S). THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THIS D-TOX SYSTEM FOR DESTROYING VHOC'S EMISSIONS SUCH AS TCE, DCE, AND PCE FROM A STRIPPING TOWER USING AIR TO STRIP THE VHOC'S FROM WATER. IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT A COMBINATION OF UV IRRADIATION AND A PROPRIETARY CATALYST CAN DESTROY SOME VHOC'S AND OTHER VOC'S IN DILUTE CONCENTRATION IN AIR. THE TEST PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO CONDUCT PARAMETRIC EVALUATION ON A PILOT SCALE AND CARRY OUT TRADE-OFF STUDIES. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDIES WILL DETERMINE FEASIBILITY OF THE D-TOX SYSTEM TO DESTROY THESE PARTICULAR VHOC'S IN A SATURATED AIR STREAM. A PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING ANALYSIS WILL DETERMINE PROJECTED COSTS FOR USE OF STRIPPING TOWERS AND OTHER SOURCES VENTING VHOC'S IN SATURATED AIR.
