Abstract: The photolysis of simulating low concentration of hydrogen sulfide malodorous gas was studied under UV irradiation emitted by self-made microwave discharge electrodeless lamps (i.e. microwave UV electrodeless mercury lamp (185/253.7 nm) and iodine lamp (178.3/180.1/183/184.4/187.6/206.2 nm)). Experiments results showed that the removal efficiency (ηH2 S) of hydrogen sulfide was decreased with increasing initial H2S concentration and increased slightly with gas residence time; H2S removal efficiency was decreased dramatically with enlarged pipe diameter. Under the experimental conditions with pipe diameter of 36 mm, gas flow rate of 0.42 standard l s-1, ηH2 S was 52% with initial H2S concentration of 19.5 mg m-3 by microwave mercury lamp, the absolute removal amount (ARA) was 4.30 μg s-1, and energy yield (EY) was 77.3 mg kW h-1; ηH2 S was 56% with initial H2S concentration of 18.9 mg m-3 by microwave iodine lamp, the ARA was 4.48 μg s-1, and the EY was 80.5 mg kW h-1. The main photolysis product was confirmed to be SO4 2 - with IC. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
