Analysis of volatile organic compounds in a waste collection centre using multisorbent adsorption and GC/MS thermal desoprtion system (2009)
Open AccessVolatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by waste treatment systems may lead to major impacts such as toxic air levels, discomfort incidents and annoying odours. The main objectives of this work were to identify and quantify ...
Open AccessAmbient air is a very complex mixture of compounds, and has a very variable composition and concentration of pollutants. Hence, a good choice of sorbent or a good combination of different sorbents may allow the determination ...
Comparative study of the adsorption performance of a multi-sorbent bed (Carbotrap, Carbopack X, Carboxen 569) and a Radiello adsorbent tube for the analysis of VOCs (2010)
Open AccessIn the present study, a comparison between the performance of two types of sampling strategies, active (multi-sorbent bed (Carbotrap, Carbopack X, Carboxen 569)) and passive (Radiello® diffusive sampler indicated for thermal ...
Conversion of chemical scrubbers to biotrickling filters for VOCs and H2S treatment at low contact times (2015-01)
Open AccessThe purpose of this work was to evaluate the technical and economical feasibility of converting three chemical scrubbers in series to biotrickling filters (BTFs) for the simultaneous removal of H2S and volatile organic ...
