Contents Notes
"This report gives results of a study determine the effectiveness of catalytic oxidation for destroying vapor-phase chlorinated hydrocarbons. The study was conducted on two pilot-scale catalytic incinerators: one employed a metal oxide catalyst in a fluidized-bed configuration; and the other, a fixed-bed proprietary catalyst supplemented with ultraviolet (UV) light and ozone injection. Both systems were tested under a variety of temperatures and space velocities. The test vapor streams consisted of low concentrations (3 to 20 ) ppmv) of mixtures of organic compound: and included three streams which represented emissions from air strippers use to treat contaminated groundwater at U.S Air Force bases. Study results showed the t the fluidized-bed catalytic incinerator was capable of achieving total organic destruction efficiencies of greater than 98%. The UV/ozone catalytic system failed to achieve high destruction efficiencies: with ozone injection, total destruction was 75%; and without ozone, the maximum destruction efficiency was 64%."
