Carbon Adsorption for VOCs

Carbon Adsorption for VOCs

This course focuses on the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from low to medium concentration gas streams, when stringent outlet concentration must be met and/or recovery of the VOC is desired. This course covers the types of adsorbers, adsorption theory, and design procedures for carbon adsorption equipment. This course is intended primarily for chemical, environmental, mechanical and industrial engineers. Someone completing this course will gain knowledge about carbon adsorption technologies for VOC removal for air pollution control.

In this 4-hour online course, an overview of carbon adsorption is presented in detail and methods of removing VOCs from process streams are described. The student will learn the theory of carbon adsorption, calculation methods, best available control techniques, and design techniques.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credit.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • The types of carbon adsorption equipment and which are in most common use
  • Define an adsorption isotherm and be able to recognize the equation for the Freundlich isotherm
  • Adsorber sizing parameters
  • Make adsorption and desorption time calculations
  • Procedures for estimating carbon requirements
  • Cost estimation procedures for carbon adsorption systems
