  • Biofilter Applications in the Coatings Industry.

    Soaring energy costs and the high cost of ‘end-of-pipe’ pollution control equipment has caused companies and regulatory agencies to re-evaluate ‘unconventional’ means of achieving VOC and HAP emissions control. The coatings industry is an excellent candidate for alternative, unconventional controls, as VOC and HAP reductions have not been as strident as has been the case in many other industries. ...

  • A High Performance Biofilter for Toluene Emission Control

    A high performance biofilter was designed at the Université de Sherbrooke in Québec. This laboratory-scale biofilter was used for the treatment of gas streams polluted with toluene present in low or high concentration. A maximum elimination capacity of 135 g.m -3 .h -1 was achieved, and no clogging of the biofilter was observed during the experimental period. The performance of the cleaning ...

  • Biofiltration: An Innovative Technology for The Future

    Biofiltration refers to the biological transformation or treatment of contaminants present in the gas phase, usually air. The fact that air contaminants can be biodegraded by active bacteria has been known for quite some time. However, it is only in the last 10 years, that biofiltration has begun to emerge as an economically viable treatment process. Initially, biofiltration involved the use of ...

  • Sustainable, Low-maintenance Disinfection for Onsite Systems

    Most of the regulations applicable for onsite wastewater treatment system are based on the use of native soil for effluent dispersal. However, there are more and more situations where dispersal of effluent in native soil is impossible: repairs of existing systems on undersized lots for implementation of required dispersal fields: sites located in soils having low permeability: or where the ...

  • Studies on Biofiltration of Contaminant Mixtures

    Most gaseous emissions from waste water treatment plants, industrial operations, and solids handling facilities, consist of contaminant mixtures rather than pure chemicals. In the literature, several studies have been conducted on biological treatment of gaseous emissions using either naturally bioactive media (soil, peat, compost, etc.) in biofilters or synthetic support media in biotrickling ...

  • Reduction of ammonia emissions during composting by Uncoupling of oxygen demand and heat removal

    Intensive pig production systems result in high emissions of ammonia, odour and greenhouse-gases (methane and laughing gas) by exhaust ventilation air. Moreover, large amounts of manure (faeces and urine) are produced with insufficient nearby land for applications (Imbeath, 1998). These outputs lead to environmental problems related to ...

  • Controlling Odors from Waste Water Treatment Plants

    INTRODUCTION In recent years, there is growing public awareness of odors from waste water treatment plants, which mainly stems from the following observed trends: The public is less tolerant of objectionable odors from waste water treatment plants; Many waste water treatment plants have seen residential, commercial, or other developments established near the facility ...

  • Introducting a New Media for Fixed-Film Treatment in Decentralized Wastewater Systems

    ABSTRACTBoth naturally occurring and artificial media have been used to treat wastewater in small community settings. Systems using naturally occurring media include sand filters and peatbased biofilters. Artificial media include open cell foam, textiles, and plastics. All the above operate as fixed-film systems, in that attached growth microorganisms are encouraged to colonize and reproduce in ...

  • Composting Key to Meeting Landfill Organics Ban

    The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) in Nova Scotia took a giant leap in 1998 to reaching a 50 percent diversion goal by 2000. Between July and November, 1998, organics collection carts were distributed to almost 100,000 households in the region. In December, two new composting facilities designed to process those materials, as well as feedstocks from the commercial sector, opened their doors. ...
