Carbon Adsorption for VOCs

Carbon Adsorption for VOCs

Activated carbon adsorption is considered a best available control technology by the USEPA and other regulatory agencies. It is widely used in air pollution control applications to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from low to medium concentration gas streams. Carbon adsorption is especially effective when strict discharge concentrations must be met or for VOC recovery.

This course presents adsorption theory and provides detailed design procedures for various types of carbon adsorption equipment. It includes guidance on adsorption technologies suitable for VOC removal with the most commonly used adsorber configurations and provides several example problems.

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