A comprehensive survey of the literature on design and operational aspects of processes for adsorbing gaseous pollutants is given. Mathematical models of these processes are also summarized. In the second section of this report, mathematical models for the adiabatic adsorption processes in a fixed bed of adsorbent are presented. The models are based on the mechanisms of external mass transfer rate control a Langmuir type isotherm. The transient solution is presented for the dynamic adsorbate concentrations and temperature at various positions of the bed. Results of the studies on the effects of various parameters are also presented. The third section of this report, describes a single fixed bed pollutant adsorber operated cyclically by synchronizing the change in the direction of the gaseous flow with the change in temperature. Two operational schemes are presented for such a system. Effects of several parameters on the adsorber performance are discussed.
