Carbon adsorption is used in air pollution control to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from low to medium concentration gas streams, when stringent outlet concentration must be met and/or recovery of the VOC is desired. This course covers the types of adsorbers, adsorption theory, and design procedures for carbon adsorption equipment.
