Candida utilis (C. utilis) growing on sugar cane bagasse complemented with a mineral salt solution was studied for gaseous ethanol removal in a biofilter. Ethanol loads from 93.7 to 511.9 g/h m(3) were used, by varying both inlet ethanol concentration (9.72 to 52.4 g/m(3)) and air flow rate (1.59 x 10(-3) to 2.86 x 10(-3) m(3)/h). At a loading rate of 93.7 g/h m(3), a steady-state was maintained for 300 h. Ethanol removal was complete, and 76.3% of the carbon consumed was found in carbon… CONTINUE READING
