Clean air supply was maintained in experiments 3 and 4, but discontinued in experiments 1 and 2. Skip to main content.
Nevertheless, these technologies are usually filteg because they only transfer waste gases from the gas phase to another phase that either requires the use of further treatments or is expensive to maintain good operation performance. We’ll assume you’re ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish. In contrast to the change of the biomass, the change of live bacteria numbers was more drastic, suggesting that death rate of live bacteria was faster than loss rate of biomass owing to endogenous decay, secondary predation, or oxygen limit.
In this study, effects of starvation and shock loads on the performance of biotrickling filters for H 2 S removal were investigated. For the removal of H 2 S, one can acidify the biotrickling filter to a pH of 1 — 2without negatively effecting removal efficiency.
Re-acclimation after the starvation was much faster than the initial startup phase because of the pre-existence of an acclimated process consortium. Compared to biomass, viable bacteria numbers decreased significantly during the starvation, especially when airflow was maintained in the absence of spray liquid. Hydrogen sulfide removal by a novel fixed-film bioscrubber system.
Biotrickping removal of malodorous H 2 S has been traditionally accomplished by using physical or chemical technologies, such as vapor scrubbing, incineration, or adsorption Bouzaza et al. Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology. In the present experiments, the lowest biomass after starvation was about 0.

Meanwhile, a fipter accumulation of immobilized biomass was observed and there was about 0. Furthermore, an important implication of these starvation experiments was that significant energy can be saved by shutting the blower and the water pump off during industrial operation, which would not lead to notable adverse effects.
Biotrickling Filters use a synthetic media to support the growth of natural occurring micro-organisms to convert H2S into a dilute acid solution, part of which is discharged via a continuous water biotrixkling or overflow.
The Biotrickling Filter System can include additional components needed to provide a complete functioning system, such as: The process of biotrickling filtration is, as is also the case with biofilters and bioscrubbers, a biological way of air treatment whereas the pollutants are not absorbed in a filter but in a trickling bed.
A biotrickling filter is a combination of a biofilter and a bioscrubber. Because water storage normally takes place under the trickling filter, this does not normally pose any problems. Four experiments were conducted to evaluate the changes of biomass and viable bacteria numbers in the biotrickling filters during a d starvation.
In order to keep salt concentrations within acceptable limits, one section must be discharged and filled with fresh water. Little is known on the starvation experiments of biotrickling filter for H 2 S removal and a limited number of studies involved actual measurements of biomass and viable bacteria numbers during starvation. Abstract In the industrial operation of biotrickling filters for hydrogen sulfide Biitrickling 2 S removal, shock loads or starvation was common due to process variations or equipment malfunctions.
Transient-state biodegradation behavior of a horizontal biotrickling filter in co-treating gaseous H 2 S and NH 3. Odor mainly composed of hydrogen sulfide H 2 S from the pharmaceutical wastewater treatment plant is one of the major public perception nuisance problems in the pharmaceutical industry. Thus the sulfur oxidizing bacteria were enumerated during the starvation experiments.
Microorganism would die gradually under the aerobic and nutrient solution absence conditions. On the other hand, a toxic effect of higher concentration of H 2 S on the microbial communities could also lead to the decrease of removal efficiency by altering the carrier pH because the bioreactor could produce acidification phenomenon during the long-term operation, as reported in our previous study Biotrockling et al. There were two possible reasons for the decrease of removal efficiency at this higher inlet concentration.
The nutrients are constantly dosed and dosage is periodically checked via analyses. Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. Biotrickling filter re-acclimation Re-acclimation experiments were conducted to investigate the response of these previously acclimated biotrickling filters to starvation periods and evaluate whether the biotrickling filter can recover rapidly and meet the demand of industrial application.

During dimensioning it is important to set the load at a modest level in order to avoid such blockages. In experiments 2 and 3, the spray liquid with 3 L nutrient solution was supplied every 1 h.

Can be used as a first stage unit to extend the life of Carbon units. The recovery processes were commenced after a d starvation period. Therefore, the biofilm containing sulfur-oxidizing bacteria was gradually formed on the surface and in the pores of the carriers. Optimieren der biologischen abluftreinigung VDI Adsorption oxidation of hydrogen sulfide on activated carbon fibers: The biotrickling filters with an inner diameter of mm and a height of mm were made of transparent plexiglass tubing.
