Biofiltration of waste gases containing both ethyl acetate and toluene using different combinations of bacterial cultures.

To investigate the microbial degradation of ethyl acetate and toluene mixtures in biofiltration, three strains were selected, identified and studied in a shake-flask culture, and finally inoculated into biofilters. These strains, namely AC6, TO3 and B5, can degrade different substrates at a different rate. The results showed that competitive inhibition from… (More)
