Abstract

The use of a microwave system was studied for the treatment of streams of trichloroethylene (TCE) and toluene that are desorbed from a sorbent bed. A small amount of O 2 was added to ensure that an adequate stoichiometry is maintained to prevent soot and PAH formation. The detoxification reactions of TCE or toluene occurred in a plug flow reactor (microwave cavity) within which a stable plasma is initiated and sustained by a microwave-induced discharge. GC measurements indicated that complete destruction of the TCE is achieved. GC/MS analysis of sorbent tube samples indicated that the effluent of the plasma system is free of dioxins and PAH to within detectable limits. Original is an abstract.
