Abstract

Catalytic incineration is one of the cost-effective technologies to solve the troublesome VOCs. However, some sulfur containing VOCs, such as methyl mercaptan and dimethyl sulfide, may deactivate the Pt catalyst that is commonly used in the catalytic incineration process. The catalytic incineration of these compounds over a Pt/Al2O3 catalyst was carried out in a bench scale catalytic incinerator. Three kinetic models, such as power-rate law, Mars and Van Krevelen model, and Langmuir-Hinshelwood model were used to analyze the results. A differential reactor design was used for best fit of kinetic model in this study. The results show that the Langmuir-Hinshelwood model is suitable for the catalytic incineration of both CH3SH and (CH)2S. This suggests that the adsorption VOC or O2 molecule important in the process of catalytic incineration of CH3SH and(CH3)2S.
