Despite being studied for over 20 years, little is known about the mechanisms underlying the treatment of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial off-gases in two-liquid phase bioreactors (TLPBs). Recent reports have highlighted a significant mismatch between the high abiotic mass transfer capacity of TLPBs and the low VOC biodegradation rates sometimes recorded, which suggests that a process limitation might also be found in the microbiology of the process. Therefore, this study was… CONTINUE READING
