Descripción
The aerobic composting process of municipal solid wastes (MSW) produces volatile organic compounds (VOC) that are emitted to the air. Some of these compounds are bad odorous compounds and also precursors of the photochemical smog formation and are normally found in a relatively low concentration in the air. Normally, before the analysis it is necessary a step of concentration. Active sampling (pumping air) through tubes containing porous polymers, such as TenaxTM TA, PorapakTM N and ChromosorbR 106 as adsorbents is a current practice to concentrate the samples of COV. But the sample volume should be lower than the breakthrough volume (BTV) of all the compounds present in the air in order to assure its quantitative collection. In this work the BTV, in the three adsorbents mentioned before, of 14 COV present in the atmosphere of a MSW facility were determined following the method proposed by Bertoni and Tappa in 1997. The BTV where compared, when it was possible, with the BTV data given by the Spanish standard UNE-EN ISO 16017-1, 2001.
