Abstract
The influence of fluid flow dynamics in mass transfer and biokinetics was considered to develop a rigorous model for biofiltration processes in air pollution control. In particular, a 3D model has been developed employing CFD techniques to analyze the impact of hydrodynamics over mass transfer and to predict biofilm activity and space-time evolution of physical and biological phenomena involved. The rheology considered for the fixed biofilm has been experimentally characterized. The dynamic mult...
