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…

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 from

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,

Emission Characteristics and Health Risks of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Measured in a Typical Recycled Rubber Plant in China

The continued development of the automotive industry has led to a rapid increase in the amount of waste rubber tires, the problem of “black pollution” has become more serious but is often ignored. In

Identification of management of malodour from odour-producing bacteria in natural rubber

The rubber industry in Thailand is affected by the problem of malodours caused by volatile fatty acids (VFAs) produced by various bacteria in natural rubber (NR). In this study, we aimed to identify

Performance of wet scrubbers to remove VOCs from rubber emissions.

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 malodour

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 inherent

Traceability of VOCs in tire inner liner by chromatography-mass spectrometry

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.

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).
