Surface volatilization modeling of (semi-)volatile hydrophobic organic compounds: The role of reference compounds

Abstract : Volatilization of hazardous hydrophobic organic compounds is often observed in many water, wastewater and soil treatment (bio)processes. Several models have been developed to quantify and predict gas-liquid pollutant transfer, being the proportionality coefficient model (PCM) one of the most commonly used, particularly in wastewater treatment. The PCM is based on the use of oxygen as a reference compound, which has a low resistance to the transfer in the gas phase. However, this resistance might be important for (semi-)volatile organic compounds – or (semi-)VOCs, which may render the use of the PCM model inaccurate. This study proposes an experimental methodology and a modeling approach for the use of the two-reference compound model (2RCM) that considers both the liquid-side and the gas-side resistances, by using water and oxygen as references. Results showed that the 2RCM predicts more accurately the overall mass transfer coefficients than the PCM for a VOC and two semi-VOCs tested in this study. In addition, the 2RCM was found to be a more robust method to estimate mass transfer coefficient of any compound and its use can be extrapolated to all substances. Finally, the relevance and limitations of both models was established.
