The study provides novel attempt to use an aerobic biofiltration system containing entrapped mixed microbial cells (EMMC) for removal of (CH3)3N-dominant waste gases. In the study, heterotrophic microflora-immobilized cellulose was packed into an EMMC reactor to degrade (CH3)3N. Effects of (CH3)3N inlet concentrations in continuous mode of operation at various flow rates are indicated. The result indicated that the (CH3)3N removal efficiency is higher than 90% at inlet loading below 27.2 mgNh… CONTINUE READING
