A packed granular activated carbon (GAC) biobed, inoculated with the ethane-degrading strain Mycobacterium E3, was used to study ethene removal from a synthetic waste gas. Ethene, for which the dimensionless partition coefficient for an air-water system at 20 degrees C is about 7.6, was used as a model compound for poorly water soluble gaseous pollutants.(More)
A method was developed to characterize the kinetics of biodegradation of low water soluble gaseous compounds in batch experiments. The degradation of ethene by resting Mycobacterium E3 cells was used as a model system. The batch degradation data were recorded as the progress curve (i.e., the time course of the ethene concentration in the headspace of the(More)
