  • Fungi have their unique advantages in capturing and degrading hydrophobic VOCs. To study the performance of fungi-based bio-trickling filters (BTFs) with respect to the degradation of toluene, and the succession process of the fungal colony under different operating conditions, a three-layer BTF packed by dominant Fusarium oxysporum immobilized with ceramic particles were set up. The fungal BTF started quickly within 7 days and restarted less than 7 days after starvation; its average RE was… CONTINUE READING
