In the VOC regulations both Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) and Packed Tower Aeration (PTA) have been designated as Best Available Treatment. DWRD has performed a great deal of research both at the bench, pilot and field scale on the use of GAC and pilot and field scale research for PTA. Cost and performance data has been collected for both technologies. The paper will compare predictions of cost and performance of GAC and PTA using available models and field scale data. A sensitivity analysis of each technology with respect to design and operating variables and cost will be made. Liquid-phase GAC and PTA with off gas control will be compared. In the paper each technology will be described, cost and performance will be discussed, and comparative evaluations will be made.
