Abstract
A dynamic model describing physical-chemical and biological processes for the removal of high loads of H2S from biogas streams in biotrickling filters (BTFs) was developed, calibrated and validated for a wide range of experimental conditions in a lab-scale BTF. The model considers the main processes occurring in the three phases of a BTF (gas, liquid and biofilm) in a co-current flow mode configuration. Furthermore, this model attempts to describe accurately the intermediate (thiosulfate and ele...
