This paper gives an overview of the most important bioreactor configurations used in waste gas treatment, i.e., conventional and trickling biofilters, the bioscrubber, suspended-growth bioreactors, as well as two-liquid phase systems (stirred tank bioreactor and biotrickling filter). The historical evolution, main characteristics, and recent developments are described in each case.

Cet article présente un survol des principales configurations de bioréacteurs utilisés dans le traitement des gaz usés, c’est-à-dire les filtres biologiques conventionnels et à lit bactérien, les épurateurs biologiques, les réacteurs à biomasse en suspension, ainsi que les systèmes à deux phases liquides (bioréacteur à cuve à agitation et filtre à lit bactérien). L’évolution historique, les caractéristiques principales ainsi que les récents développements sont décrits pour chaque configuration.
