Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO)

Photo catalytic Oxidation

PCO has a wide variety of potential applications. The application closest to commercialization is
the destruction of VOCs in air. The PCO process can be applied directly to airborne emissions, as
well as to gaseous pollutants generated from remediation techniques, such as soil vapor
extraction and air stripping.
The goal of this project is to determine the feasibility of treating VOC emissions from
semiconductor plants. Although originally planned to look at a number of simulated waste
streams, this work focused on solvent vapor emissions from a parts cleaning sink.

  1. We have already successfully trialed a PCO system for removing VOC’s from factory air outlets in the UK. Installation of permanent equipment is due this year.
