Abstract
The present work discusses the startup and operation of different biotrickling filters during the simultaneous removal of NH3, H2S and ethylmercaptan for odor control focussing on a) the impact of pH control in the stability of the nitrification processes during reactors startup and b) the crossed effects of selected pollutants and their by-products. Two biotrickling filters were packed with poplar wood chips while a third reactor was packed with polyurethane foam. The presence of a pH control l...
