Steady- and transient-state performance of a thermophilic suspended-growth bioreactor for α-pinene removal from polluted air.

The removal of α-pinene from polluted air was examined under thermophilic conditions (50°C) in one- and two-liquid phase continuous stirred tank bioreactors (CSTBs). Steady-state experiments were performed at different gas residence times, and α-pinene concentrations, corresponding to inlet loading rates between 0.5 and 38gm(-3)h(-1) in the one-liquid phase… CONTINUE READING
