Physical and chemical adsorption of VOCs and other gas-phase pollutants
In adsorption, gaseous pollutants are removed from an air stream by transferring the pollutants to the solid surface of an adsorbent. Activated carbon is the most commonly used adsorbent.
Adsorption involves the adhesion of pollutant gas molecules to porous solid surfaces that the contaminated air stream passes through.
Waste Transfer Hub – Design, manufacture, delivery, installation and commissioning
The Waste transfer hub pictured above, has an installation of two carbon adsorbers, each of annular design and capable of handling 60,000m3/h of exhaust air. The adsorbers utilise granular activated carbon as the adsorption media.
Carbon Adsorbers are effective at removing;
- Hydrogen Sulphides
- Oil vapours
- Odour VOCs
- Gas Phase hydrocarbons
