We performed the experiments to manufacture the hydrophobic 200 cells/in2-zeolite honeycomb using HY-typezeolite of Si/Al ratio of 80 for separating and removing the VOCs emitted from small and medium size-plants byadsorption and to determine the drying method for the honeycomb at 105C without cracking, then measuredperformances of the honeycomb to adsorb the benzene, o-xylene, and MEK and to desorb the benzene and MEKsaturated on the honeycomb by the nitrogen gas as the desorption gas. As a results, the good honeycomb wasformed and the honeycomb was not cracked when the mixing ratio of the zeolite to bentonite to methyl cellulose topolyvinyl alcohol to glycerine to water is 100:8.73:2.18:4.19:1.38:126 and dried the honeycomb at 105C for24 hours in the drying oven. The shape of the dried honeycomb was not changed after calcination, and thecompressive strengths of the honeycomb after drying and calcination were 6.7 and 0.69 kg/cm2, respectively. Theadsorption efficiencies of the honeycomb for benzene, o-xylene, and MEK were 92~ 96% at the room temperature.The desorption efficiency at 180C was higher than that at 150C by 1.5~ 13.8% depending on the flow rate of thenitrogen gas, and it was found that desorption efficiency is higher than 85% at 180C and 1.0L/min of the nitrogengas. At 180C and 0.2L/min, the concentration of the benzene and MEK in the used desorption gas are higher than40,000 and 50,000ppm, respectively, so it be used as the fuel for preheating the desorption gas fed into the columnin desorption cycle.
