Document was prepared for a presentation at Engineering Solutions to Indoor Air Quality Problems, July 21-23, 1997. It reports on a cost comparison conducted of 1 m3/s indoor air cleaners using granular activated carbon (GAC) vs. photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), for trating a steady-state inlet VOC concentration of 0.3 mg/m3. The analysis showed that, for the assumptions used here, the PCO unit would have an installed cost more than 12 times greater, and an anual cost more than 6 times greater, than the GAC unit.
