Adsorption of volatile organic compounds and regeneration of activated carbons – Development of a simulation tool

Abstract : Organic vapors emitted from solvents used in chemical / food / pharmaceutical processes, or from hydrocarbon fuel storage stations at oil terminals, can be efficiently captured by adsorption onto activated carbon beds. The overall objective of the research program is the experimental and simulation studies of the adsorption and regeneration steps in the case of VOC removal which accounts into industrial emissions by Temperature Swing Adsorption (TSA) and Vacuum Temperature Swing Adsorption (VTSA) processes. This is achieved by the following steps : to establish the isotherm equilibrium data for 5 VOCs and 8 activated carbons at 293, 313, 333, and 353 K (totally 120 isotherm experiments) and then use them in the simulation model; to develop a simulation model for adsorption and regeneration process; to design and optimize the experimental setup of Thermal Swing Adsorption (TSA) which has been established in Ecole des Mines de Nantes; to design and optimize the experimental setup of Vacuum Temperature Swing Adsorption processes (VTSA) which has been established in GRL ARKEMA unit ; simulation validation of experimental results of TSA and VTSA process. Once after the completion of all the objectives, the goal is to develop and launch a complete simulation package for adsorption and regeneration steps of VOCs with the co-operation from PROSIM Corporation.
