Title

Enhancement Of The Kinetics Of Incineration Of Dilute Hazardous Organic Vapors

Abstract

The oxidation of dilute hazardous organic vapors (HOC) in air, sometimes called “afterburning”, is often used to destroy a wide variety of organic pollutants before then are emitted to the atmosphere. High temperatures are needed for the high efficiency (〉99%) destruction of odors, paint solvents, chlorinated hydrocarbons and other hazardous organics. The need for high temperatures sometimes results in the formation of other hazardous pollutants, such as dioxins. Addition of a material that could enhance the kinetics of the oxidation reactions in the post-flame zone could result in lower temperatures and thus prevent the formation of other hazardous compounds. Research proposed to test possible “enhancers” (hydrogen peroxide and ozone) for two specific HOCs of industrial significance is discussed. © 1989, All rights reserved.
