As a consequence of the Dutch “Hydrocarbon 2000” Programma, the industry will have to reduce the emission of styrene. Biological degradation in biofilters may offer an economically feasible method for the purification of low concentration (< 1 g/m3) styrene waste gases. However, microbial filters for styrene degradation currently available suffer from instability. Therefore, it is our objective to develop stable biofilters which rely on fungi as the active catalyst for the treatment of styrene… CONTINUE READING
