In this paper, the results of the process of designing, installing and commissioning the full-scale biofilter systems will be discussed. All of the biofilter system utilized an inorganic synthetic media. The objective of this paper is to emphasize major pitfalls in specifying full-scale biofilter systems, wherein the impact of inlet concentration on treatment efficiency is often ignored, and simultaneous treatment requirements of exit odor levels as well as treatment efficiencies for hydrogen sulfide and each of the major reduced sulfur compounds are required to be met by the full-scale system. The major differences between the performances of a biofilter, thermal oxidizer and chemical treatment systems will be discussed, with special emphasis on correctly specifying biofilter systems to meet the goals of odor control at a wastewater treatment plant.
