A laboratory scale biofilter inoculated with Pseudomonas putida (MTCC 102) was used for degradation of toluene present in air. Wood charcoal was used as the filter media and a layer of glass beads (6mm) was used for improved air distribution. The biofilter was operated continuously for a period of 5months at four different flow rates - 0.06, 0.12, 0.18, and(More)
The main objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of wood charcoal as biofilter media under transient and high loading condition. Biofiltration of xylene was investigated for 150days in a laboratory scale unit packed with wood charcoal and inoculated with mixed microbial culture at the xylene loading rates ranged from 12 to 553gm-3h-1.
