Excess biomass accumulation and activity loss in vapor-phase bioreactors (VPBs) can lead to unreliable long-term operation. In this study, temporal and spatial variations in biomass accumulation, distribution and activity in VPBs treating toluene-contaminated air were monitored over a 96-day period. Two laboratory-scale bioreactors were subjected to a toluene loading rate of 45.8 g/m(3)-h with one VPB operating in a unidirectional (UD) mode and a second identical VPB operating in a… CONTINUE READING
