Biofiltration is cost-effective for the treatment of gases containing low concentrations of volatile organic compounds ðo3 g m Þ: However, conventional biofilters, based on compost and bacterial activity, face problems with the elimination of hydrophobic compounds. Besides that, biofilter operational stability is often hampered by acidification and drying out of the filter bed. To overcome these problems, biofilters with fungi on inert packing material have been developed. Fungi are more… CONTINUE READING
