BIOTRICKLING FILTER TREATS HIGH H2S IN A COLLECTION SYSTEM IN JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA
To address high H2S in a collection system, Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) pilot tested a plastic media biotrickling filter. The pilot unit supplied by Bioway America Inc. reduced H2S from over 500 ppm to below 1 ppm. In January 2002, JEA installed a permanent system at the Lennox Avenue lift station. The 0.28m3/s (600 cfm) Bioway system is designed to treat 800 ppm H2S. The capital cost is 160,000 with annual operating costs of 10,000. A present worth comparison showed biotrickling filters are more cost effective than wet scrubbers, biofilters, and iron salt chemicals. Biotrickling filters are ideally suited for treating very high H2S concentrations at a low cost.
