Abstract
In this study, respirometry of heterogeneous media is advised as a valuable technique for characterizing mass transport and biological activity of H2S-oxidizing biofilms growing attached to a trickling bed. Controlled flows of liquid and H2S-containing air were recirculated through a closed heterogeneous respirometer while oxygen concentration through gas, liquid and biofilm phase was simultaneously recorded. Respirometer monitoring results were used to calibrate a model developed to describe th...
