  • Biofiltration Treatment of α-Pinene

    This paper provides an overview of air biofiltration with experimental data on the performance of a synthetic media biofilter system. It is shown that use of high surface area per unit volume structured media results in higher contaminant treatment rates per unit biofilter volume. It is shown that use of specially designed synthetic media allows effective control of biomass buildup by continuous ...

  • Coriolis air samplers are currently used for avian flu research

    Avian influenza refers to the disease caused by infection with avian (bird) influenza (flu) Type A viruses. These viruses occur naturally among wild and domestic birds worldwide and can also infect other animal species. As infection by avian influenza has environmental, health and economic impacts, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the World Health Organization (WHO) constantly ...

  • Discover the richness of microorganism in Polar Regions

    Global warming is one of the main challenge worldwide for the coming years. Scientists have already warned the international community regarding the increasingly rapid melt of the ice caps and its dramatic consequences around the globe. Polar regions are the most isolated place on Earth, uninhabited due to their harsh climate conditions. The study of this regions’ unknown bioaerosols ...

  • Biological Removal of Ammonia from Contaminated Air Streams Using Biofiltration System

    ABSTRACT Ammonia is a colorless, toxic, reactive and corrosive gas with a sharp odor. It is irritating to the skin, eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Ammonia gas occurs in the environment naturally and is emitted by many industries and, therefore, its control is essential. Biofiltration is a new emerging technology that is being used as a control procedure. This study evaluates the use of a ...

  • Hypoxia Workstation with HEPA-Filtration Option Demonstrates Enhanced Containment to Protect User

    Abstract Hypoxia workstations are utilized by researchers who require stable and accurate low oxygen environments for their research. Oxygen, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity are precisely controlled within the work area of the workstation to simulate an in vivo environment and create optimal conditions for the experiment. Hypoxia workstations are closed glove boxes. They allow air ...

  • Back-propagation neural network for performance prediction in trickling bed air biofilter

    Experimental studies were carried out with a laboratory-scale biotrickling filter to treat a gaseous stream contaminated with benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) operated in a continuous mode. The biotrickling filter initially acclimatised with toluene was used to treat BTX compound individually at loading rates ranging from 7.2 g/m³hr to 62.2 g/m³hr, operated in a sequential mode. The results ...
