Catalytic Purification of Industrial Waste Gases
Too many manufacturing processes still result in the discharge to the atmosphere of noxious gases even though the technology for removing the offending contaminants frequently exists or can readily be developed.
A short communication by T. G. Alanova, A. A. Myagkova and V. N. Kulikova (Khim. Prom-st., 1975, (3), 233), describes work which has been successfully carried out to purify the waste gases resulting from a fermentation process during the manufacture of streptomycin. A comparison of catalytic and high temperature methods showed the superiority of the catalytic process and favoured a platinum on Nichrome catalyst.
