Abstract:

In response to increased pressures from stringent environmental legislation, and an increased understanding of the impact of pollutants, there is an increasing requirement for sustainable treatment options for various air emissions to the environment. Success in biofiltration will be shown to be closely linked with in-depth analytical process engineering, accurate characterisation of waste gas streams, control of process conditions for optimisation of biological activity, and the physio-chemical properties of the filter media. Biological technologies have been developed to treat a range of applications from relatively straightforward odour emissions from municipal wastewater treatment plants through to difficult complex industrial emissions.
