CARBON ADSORPTION FOR INDOOR AIR CLEANING
VanOsdell, D. W. AND L E. Sparks*. CARBON ADSORPTION FOR INDOOR AIR CLEANING. ASHRAE JOURNAL. ASHRAE, Atlanta, GA, 37(2):34-40, (1995).
Published Journal Article
The paper discusses the use of carbon adsorption for indoor air cleaning, focusing on the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) using granular activated carbon (GAC). It addresses GAC performance in two directions. Initially, it presents performance measurements for GAC at low challenge VOC concentrations that might be encountered indoors. The results suggest that test results obtained at high-challenge concentrations may be extrapolated to low indoor concentrations. Secondly, it explores implications of these performance measurements for the use of GAC to remove VOCs and improve indoor air quality, using an indoor air building simulation model.
