Air Pollution Control: Carbon Adsorption for VOCs

COURSE NO: C04-052
Air Pollution Control: Carbon Adsorption for VOCs
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course covers the absorber types, adsorption theory, design procedures and cost estimation procedures for carbon adsorption equipment.  This course also provides guidance for carbon adsorption technologies for VOC removal for air pollution control.


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 level must be met and/or recovery of the VOC is desired.


This 4 PDH online course is intended for environmental, chemical, mechanical, civil, industrial engineers and other personnel concerned with air pollution control.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the most commonly used types of carbon adsorption equipment
  • Knowing the three types of adsorbents commonly used
  • Understanding the definition of adsorption isotherm and be able to recognize the equation for the Freundlich isotherm
  • Familiarizing with adsorber sizing parameters
  • Learning how to make adsorption and desorption time calculations
  • Familiarizing with procedures for estimating carbon requirements
  • Familiarizing with cost estimation procedures for carbon adsorption systems
