BIOLOGICAL ODOR CONTROL STRATEGIES AT WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS
Abstract:Biological treatment of odor at wastewater treatment plants is an established technology. Recent developments also aim at the use of biofilters and biotrickling filters for the treatment of complex air streams containing multiple pollutants. Examples are the treatment of odorous air containing toxic Volatile Organic Compounds and odorous air from biosolids composting, which contains a mixture of sulfur compounds and ammonia. The present paper demonstrates the applicability of biofilters and biotrickling filters for treatment of such air streams.
