In industrial activities, operation of air biofilters may be interrupted for a long period of time. In order to examine the effect of shut-down on the performance of biofilters, a pilot scale biofiltration unit was restarted up after a non-use duration of eight months. After a reacclimation period of eight days, the biofilter reached an elimination capacity of 35 g x m(-3) x h(-1) compared to 38 g x m(-3) x h(-1) before shut-down, for the same operating conditions. The results obtained indicate… CONTINUE READING
