CHE5178 - Design for gaseous emissions
4 points, SCA Band 2, 0.0833333 EFTSL
Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering
Leader(s): P A Webley
Introduction: Types of gaseous emissions; environmental problems. VOC emissions: condensation; absorption; adsorption; incineration; biofiltration for abatement; odour control. Acid gases: absorption-stripping processes; simulation of absorption-stripping processes; design of split-loop processes; H2S removal; sulphur recovery; CO2 removal; NOx removal. Flue gas emissions minimisation: targeting flue gas emissions; role of heat integration; fuel switch; utility and process changes; site-wide approaches.
