Abstract
Biotrickling filters for waste gas treatment are often packed with expensive, inert packing materials. In this work, poplar and pine wood chips were evaluated as low-cost packing materials in two biotrickling filters for the simultaneous treatment of a mixture of organic and inorganic volatile compounds. Bioreactors were operated at gas contact times of 22–34 s. Inlet loading rates of 3.5¿±¿1.0 gN-NH3 m-3h-1 and 6.5¿±¿1.1 gS-H2S m-3h-1 were supplied, while ethylmercaptan and butyric acid...
