The gaseous waste collection and disposal of the N.S. Savannah upgrading program are reviewed, examining the possibility of regeneration of the charcoal adsorbers in the system. Three aproaches are taken: (1) regeneration of the present charcoal adsorbers, (2) continuous operation of a charcoal adsorber presently in the system, and (3) use of a higher temperature system with molecular sieves as a drying agent. The first two approaches to the problem are to remove the necessity of replacing charcoal adsorbers except when the system is down for maintenance; the third approach has the same goal with a simpler operational system. Each approach is described and evaluated. It is concluded that continuous operation of the present system should be followed, although the other schemes might be considered for futute operation. Scheme 3 is thought to have definite advantages.
