Method for the Destruction of Methylene Iodide (Technology #: 050895-01)

Description:

This technology describes a method for decomposing methylene iodide, including the following steps: providing a hydrophobic sorbent zeolite, exposing the zeolite to methylene iodide in the presence of water or water vapor, so that the methylene iodide is adsorbed on the water, heating the zeolite to a first temperature of at least 100 degrees celcius to decompose the methylene iodide, and heating the zeolite to a second temperature of at least 400 degrees celcius to regenerate its sorbent characteristics.


ADVANTAGES
  • The invention is able to address the issue of decomposition of the contaminant, through use of a sorben zeolite, after it is removed from the environment

APPLICATIONS
  • Pollution treatment
