Abstract

Microwave regeneration allows the rapid and efficient desorption of VOC from adsorbents, and can be used to destroy the desorbed waste stream. Plasma processing for environmental remediation is an emerging technology which has garnered interest in the area of combustion due to its ability to generate extremely high temperatures, reaching 10,000 K. The higher temperature attained in plasma processing minimizes the potential for the in situ formation of PAH, dioxins, and furans. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) of trichloroethylene (TCE) in a microwave system was investigated. The system was capable of achieving significant destruction at operating powers as low as 400 w. The presence of steam had a significant impact on the effectiveness of the microwave destruction process. Carbotrap samples were analyzed on a GC/MS system for products of incomplete combustion. At 600 w with 30% steam and 1700 ppm of TCE, no evidence of dioxins or furans were observed, indicating that high DRE could be achieved without producing other products of incomplete reaction.
