Novel hybrid technology for VOC control using an electron beam and catalyst

Novel hybrid technology for VOC control using an electron beam and catalyst Noble (Pt, Pd) and transition metals (Mn, Cu) were employed as coupling catalysts to evaluate the toluene (1500 ppm C of initial concentration) removal efficiencies in the electron beam (EB)-catalyst coupling system. The toluene removal efficiency was 60.1% in the EB-only system at a dose of 8.7 kGy. In the presence of the metal catalysts (Pt, Pd, Cu and Mn), the removal efficiency was enhanced by 37, 33, 6 and 22%, respectively, compared to that of EB-only treatment. It was found that the selectivity to CO2 with Pt and Pd coupling were relatively higher than those of Cu and Mn. Especially the CO2 selectivity of EB-Pt coupling was significantly high at a relatively low absorbed dose. The removal efficiencies were compared for loading of catalyst and there was no significant difference among 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 wt%. Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
