With the goal of capturing and recovery of toxic air emissions from point sources such as oil and condensate storage tank vents, this project involves the development and testing of an innovative thermal-swing adsorption (TSA) system.  The system will make use of commercially available granular activated carbon (GAC) as the adsorbent to passively capture gas emissions.  The system will focus on the capture of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in both gaseous and liquid forms.  Electrothermal heating integrated with the system functions to desorb the captured compounds for disposal or reuse.
