Contents Notes
"The report gives results of an evaluation of the applicability of membrane systems as a preconcentrator and defines operating parameters of a membrane system. Advantages of such a system is a potential reduction in cost for subsequent control systems. The evaluation is part of a joint EPA/California Air Resources Board investigation of the potential of membrane technology on volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Tests of various membrane materials and configurations have been conducted. A potentially innovative application of membrane technology may be to concentrate VOCs from exhaust gases such as solvent oven drying exhaust. A preconcentrator membrane could be used to reduce the size and, in turn, the capital and operating costs of a conventional VOC control device such as a carbon adsorber or incinerator. Study results do not, however, verify that a membrane preconcentrator is a viable option to reduce overall pollution control costs."
