Application of electron beams for the treatment of VOC streams

Hirota, Koichi; Sakai, Hiroki*; Washio, Masakazu*; Kojima, Takuji

Twenty volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were irradiated with electron beams in laboratory scale to obtain an electron-beam energy required for a 90% treatment. The experiments showed that the energy was related with the chemical structure and roughly estimated from rate constants for reactions with OH radicals. The cost analysis revealed that the unification of a self-shielding electron accelerator with a reactor could reduce the capital cost for an electron-beam system. Electron-beam technology is a promising method for the treatment of VOCs.
