Fungal biofilters attain higher toluene elimination rates compared to bacterial systems. However, strong mycelia g cause clogging. In the present work, toluene biofiltration with the fungus Paecilomyces variotii CBS 115145 was tested with two rig packing materials that allow high mycelia growth. The reactor had two 4.25 L sections, each packed with ceramic Raschig ring in water retention capacity and internal porosity. After optimizing nutrient solution delivery, an overall maximum elimination… CONTINUE READING
