Abstract

This work investigated the performance of isovaleraldehyde (3-methylbutanal) removal from gas streams in photocatalytic reactors at room temperature. The feasibility of pollutant removal using the up-scaled reactor was systematically assessed by monitoring the removal efficiency at different operational parameters, such as geometries of reactor, air flow rate and inlet concentration. A proposal modeling for scaling up the photocatalytic reactors is described and detailed in this present study. In this context, the photocatalytic degradation of isovaleraldehyde (Isoval) in gas phase is studied. In fact, the removal rate has been compared at different continuous flow reactors: a photocatalytic tangential reactor (PTR), planar reactor and P5000 pilot. The effects of the inlet concentration, flow rate, geometries and size of reactors on the removal efficiency are also studied. A kinetic model taking into account the mass transfer step is developed. The modeling is done by introducing an equivalent intermediate (EI) formed by the photo-oxidation of Isoval. This new approach has substantially improved the agreement between modeling and experiments with a satisfactory overall description of the mineralization from lab to pilot scales.
