Study of the coupling of different indoor air pollution treatment techniques for the removal of nitrogen oxides, VOCs and particulate matter

on .

P05I3   Indoor air pollution is one of the biggest concerns in terms of public health. In France, it was estimated that indoor air pollution would bring about a socio-economic cost of around 20 billion euros per year. In this context, the treatment of this kind of pollution has become an important challenge.

   The CUBAIR project aimed to develop and evaluate an original prototype, combining air purification techniques such as adsorption, filtration and photocatalysis. The evaluation of the performance of this prototype was carried out in situ during 10 months and different measurements were taken for parameters and pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and VOCs with emphasis on BTEX and some aldehydes. Other measurement campaigns were carried out to determine particle concentrations (PM1, PM2.5, PM10), microbiological parameters, comfort parameters (temperature, relative humidity), as well as the air flow of the prototype. The results show a good removal efficiency (RE) of nitrogen oxides with a RE of 86% for the NO2. Likewise, PM1 was reduced by more than 75%.

Tarpomatic or how to control odours from landfills

on .

tarpomatic website   Tarpomatic is a daily cover that is placed on the tip face of an active cell of a landfill. This solution was presented during the 2019 International Solid Waste Association world congress, although thiscompany has already a trajectory of 25 years delivering tarpaulin covers around the world.

   Managing odour impact of landfills is usually challenging. There are not many useful methods to abate odour from these large surfaces with plenty of fugitive odours coming from everywhere. One of the main sources of odour emission is the working front of the landfill. A daily cover of the tip face of a landfill is a must, when there are odour complaints from the communities nearby. Tarpomatic offers a quick and cheap way to cover this surface.

Minimisation and Abatement of Odors by Physico-Chemical Treatments

on .

M Martin   Environmental pollution related to odour emission has become in the last years an important public concern. Closeness of odour-causing facilities such as wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to urban areas further aggravates the problem. Volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) are one of the main groups of odour causing compounds in WWTPs, especially in the sludge processing.

   Nowadays, there is a variety of options available for the effective treatment of odour causing compounds emission. However, there is a need to assess in depth the efficiency of these technologies applied to the same process. Thus, this work is focused on the evaluation of different physico-chemical techniques (chemical scrubbers, adsorption, advanced oxidation processes) in order to minimize or reduce the VSC from sludge processing in WWTPs.
