Desorption of Adsorbed Volatile Organic Compounds(VOCs) by Microwave Irradiation
Desorption of the adsorbed volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by microwave irradiation was studied, and the adsorbents were repeatedly utilized. The main advantage of microwave heating is that the treatment can be performed in a relatively short period of time, which implies a lower consumption of energy. In this study, desorption experiments by microwave were conducted in a 2450MHz multimode cavity for water, toluene, methanol, methylethylketone (MEK) on molecular sieve 13X and HY-zeolite adsorbents. As a result, the microwave heating can be expected to be effective for desorption of VOCs. Also, it was expected to be very effective means for regenerating of adsorbents.
