about

The complete guide to the control of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
With increased regulatory pressures on air pollution emissions, there is a growing need for innovative control technologies in a wide range of industries. This timely and authoritative book explores the science, technology, economics, and applications specific to the control of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Engineer Paige Hunter joins forces with S. Ted Oyama, an expert in VOC control and a renowned ozone chemist, to present a thorough review of both conventional and emerging techniques for the treatment of VOC-containing streams. They provide detailed technical descriptions, up-to-date cost data on processes, and practical information for industry professionals on how to apply the techniques in diverse fields. Coverage includes:
* Comparisons of the major conventional control methods for the treatment of VOC-containing streams
* The new technologies of membrane filtration, ultraviolet oxidation, and corona destruction
* The cutting-edge technology of catalytic ozonation, suitable for retrofitting existing processes or control systems
* International aspects of air pollution and VOC control
* A comprehensive listing of hazardous air pollutants (HAPSs) and VOCs
* Dozens of illustrations and photographs as well as references to Internet resources
PAIGE HUNTER, PE, is a consultant in environmental technology in Blacksburg, Virginia. S. TED OYAMA, PhD, is Fred W. Bull Professor of Chemical Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg.
