Abstract
BACKGROUND: The removal of problematic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from polluted gas (toluene, iso-octane and hexane) has been investigated in amembrane bioreactor (MBR) by adapting a commercial capillarymicroporous polypropylene membrane. TheMBRperformancewasmeasuredunder several operational conditions. The influenceof theemptybedresidence time (EBRT), the liquid velocity and the inlet concentration was evaluated. RESULTS: For toluene, itwas possible to treat higher loading rates than 16...
