|Title:||Performance of a UV-assisted Hydrogen-peroxide-fed Spray Tower for Sulfur Dioxide Abatement|
|Abstract:||Spray towers are widely used for controlling air pollution by gases such as SO2, CO2, NOx, and HCl. Results of sulfur dioxide absorption in a spray tower using solutions of 1gL-1 and 2gL-1 of hydrogen peroxide are reported. For comparison, a water and sodium hydroxide solution was also used for SO2 abatement. The results indicate that H2O2 may be an important alternative for SO2 removal in spray towers. A set of experimental removal efficiency data was obtained as a function of gas and liquid flow rates. Volumetric mass transfer coefficients (kga) were calculated and an experimental relationship among kga, gas, and liquid flow rates was proposed. As a final experiment, an oxidation process assisted by UV radiation using a 1gL-1 solution of H2O2 was carried out to speed up the SO2 removal rate. The results obtained in this condition are similar to those achieved with a solution of 2gL-1 H2O2.|
