Abstract
The report summarizes a technical and economic evaluation of add-on control systems and process modifications for reducing, by 99%, the emissions of phthalic and maleic anhydrides from the main process vent gas in phthalic anhydride manufacturing plants. A survey was made to identify present (1976) control practices and their control efficiencies in the phthalic anhydride industry. Based on theoretical and practical considerations, existing control technology alternatives were evaluated to determine whether they can be improved to obtain the desired control efficiency. Technical evaluation of these alternatives led to identification of candidate alternatives which apply to the manufacturing process, and which can achieve 99% overall removal efficiency for phthalic and maleic anhydrides. Design and operating parameters for achieving the desired control efficiency were also determined. Cost estimates and an energy utilization study were performed for the candidate alternatives. Demonstration programs are recommended for the most promising alternatives.
