The use of an organic solvent can allow to increase the mass transfer, and thereby biodegradation, of hydrophobic gaseous pollutants. The biodegradation of hexane by a Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain was thus optimized in a two phase partitioning bioreactor (TPPB). Silicone oil was first selected among various organic solvents based on its biocompatibility and resistance to P. aeruginosa and its high affinity for hexane (airorganic partitioning of 0.0034). A silicone oil based TPPB was then… CONTINUE READING
