CARASOL? adsorbents are a range of natural, harmless but potent granular materials produced from waste derived from the food industry. They are very versatile, able to scrub a wide variety of volatile contaminants and are clean and easy to dispose of after use and have the added advantage of impeccable environmental credentials.
Fumes and odours from industrial processes are increasingly unacceptable in areas adjacent to residential and leisure spaces, and those responsible for emissions face stringent responses from the authorities if they do not take effective steps towards control and remediation.
There is already a wide range of technologies available to system designers, mostly with trade-offs in effectiveness, environmental acceptability, capital costs, running expenses and ease of use.
Carafiltration Ltd has a strong association with the University of York and over the last 4 years has developed CARASOL as a range of filter mediums. They are delighted to team up with Forbes as Process Engineers to provide a versatile, cost effective approach to fume and odour control.
CARASOL is able to trap a very wide variety of different contaminating molecules by virtue of a unique combination of both physical (physisorptive) and biochemical (chemisorptive) trapping. These two mechanisms work in synergy to provide a very efficient and versatile trapping process.
The raw material for CARASOL granular adsorbent is a clean waste residue from a specific food manufacturing process and is classed as a renewable resource. The adsorbents are completely biodegradable and biocompatible with landfill. Spent CARASOL may also be incinerated at high temperatures if it has been used to trap very toxic molecules such as dioxins.
The versatility of CARASOL embraces acid gases, oxides of sulphur, mercaptans, hydrogen sulphide, dimethyl sulphoxide, dioxins, HCI/HF, VOCs and volatile metals. Because of the duel trapping mechanisms involved CARASOL will trap both water-soluble and fat-soluble gaseous contaminants.
