Mitigating Odors from Agricultural Facilities : a Review of Literature concerning Biofilters

  title={Mitigating Odors from Agricultural Facilities : a Review of Literature concerning Biofilters},
  author={Li-Jung Chen and Steve J Hoff},
This article reviews literature on biofilter research both in laboratories and at confined livestock facilities. The purpose is to give an up‐to‐date review of biofilters used to mitigate of odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from agricultural facilities using biofilters. More specifically the article addresses: 1) Factors concerned in design and operation of biofilters such as media property, empty bed residence time, media moisture measurement and control, microbial ecology… CONTINUE READING
