Gas-phase styrene removal using the fungus, Sporothrix variecibatus was evaluated in a novel monolith bioreactor, receiving a continuous supply of nutrients from the trickling liquid phase. During the start-up process, the monolith reactor was operated for 22 days with relatively low styrene concentrations in the gas-phase (<0.4 g m(-3)). Afterwards, continuous experiments were carried out at different inlet styrene concentrations, ranging between 0.06 and 2.5 g m(-3), and at two different flow… CONTINUE READING
