Malodourous emission from raw natural rubber (NR) processing activities has become a public nuisance since residential and public development areas are gradually expanding near raw NR processing factories. The malodourous vapour mainly consists of volatile fatty acids (VFA) released from the breakdown of non-rubber constituents during drying stage of the raw rubber processing. An improved sampling methodology to characterise and monitor VFA from the drying stage was implemented. This study… Expand

Determination of Appropriate Conditions for Volatile Fatty Acids from Rubber Industrial Wastewater by GC-FID: Headspace Technique
The appropriate conditions of gas chromatography were developed and applied to the volatile fatty acids (VFAs) in from of acetic acid, propionic acid, and isobutyric acid analysis of wastewater fromExpand
Quantification of VOCs and the development of odour wheels for rubber processing.
The linking of odours and odorants can facilitate communication between receptors (the public) and plant operators inorder to minimise odour impact and develop effective abatement and on-site management practices. Expand
Critical analysis of methods for the measurement of volatile fatty acids
ABSTRACT Volatile fatty acids are formed during microbial fermentation of organic matter and are present in a wide range of matrices, i.e., wastewater, landfill leachates, human and animal fluids,Expand
Odour Dispersion Modelling for Raw Rubber Processing Factories
An odour dispersion modelling approach was adopted to assess odour dispersion, particularly from the drying stage of raw rubber processing factories, identified as a major source of malodourExpand
Reduction of Offensive Odor from Natural Rubber Using Zinc-Modified Bentonite
Natural bentonite was modified with zinc ions and was used as a filler to reduce the offensive odor from raw natural rubber (NR). Characterization of filler shows the limited exchange of inherentExpand

The results demonstrated that the sources of VOCs can be traced back to raw rubbers and resins, and the total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in the inner liner could be reduced. Expand
A simple method for the accurate determination of the Henry’s law constant for highly sorptive, semivolatile organic compounds
The main cause of errors encountered in previous studies was overcome by performing the proper correction of the sorptive losses of the SVOCs that inevitably took place, particularly on the walls of the equilibration systems (mainly the headspace vial and/or the glass tight syringe). Expand
