Abstract

A laboratory-scale activated carbon fiber cloth (ACFC) - cryogenic air quality control device was developed and operated to remove, capture, and recover methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and toluene from gas streams. The system was tested with gas streams at room temperature, ambient pressure, and toxic volatile organic compound (TVOC) concentrations near 1000 ppmv in air. Results from the laboratory-scale system indicate this new device allows for successful removal, capture, and recovery of TVOCs. No contamination of TVOC in the adsorption-regeneration-recovery process was detected by mass spectrometry.
