Kinetic data of ferrous iron oxidation by Thionacillus ferrooxidans were determined. The aim was to remove H2S (<0.5 ppm) from waste gas by a process proposed earlier. Kinetic data necessary for industrial scale-up were investigated in a chemostat airlift reactor (dilution rate 0.02–0.12 h−1; pH 1.3). Due to the low pH, ferric iron precipitation and wall growth could be avoided. The maximum ferrous iron oxidation rate of submersed bacteria was 0.77 g 1−1 h−1, the maximum specific growth rate… CONTINUE READING
