Abstract:

This document describes the performance and costs associated with the Purus PADREregistered vapor treatment system manufactured by the Purus Corporation of San Jose, California Purus Inc. 2713 N First Street, San Jose, CA 95134-2000. During the period of 11 February to 1 June 1994, a Purus PADREregistered Model 1.6 was tested at the Vandenberg Air Force Base AFB Base Exchange BX service station near Lompoc, California. In many states, VOCs must be treated before being discharged into the atmosphere. In the Santa Barbara Air Pollution Control District, discharges of both total VOCs and benzene are regulated. The Purus PADREregistered system was selected to provide treatment of these compounds until vapor concentrations were reduced to acceptable levels. The test was completed in conjunction with an ongoing bioventing pilot test conducted by Parsons Engineering Science, Inc. Parsons ES under the direction of the Air Force Center For Environmental Excellence AFCEE, Technology Transfer Division ERT. The purpose of this test was to independently measure both the performance and the cost of Purus PADREregistered operation, and to determine how this technology can be most effectively used to complement the bioventing technology.
