A review. Several studies in recent years have demonstrated the potential benefits of using adsorbents in monolithic form. An important application is the recovery of volatile org. compds. (VOCs) from air streams. The monolith offers the prospect of a pressure drop which is considerably lower than that of its equiv. bed of particulate material and so, in addn. to conferring direct environmental and health benefits, and hence social benefits, the monolith can contribute to redns. in energy demands with consequential redns. in carbon dioxide emissions. This paper reviews the prospects for monolithic adsorbents as general replacements for granular (or pelleted) forms of adsorbent in the recovery of VOCs. The paper draws on the published literature as well as on current thinking for monolith design. [on SciFinder (R)]
