  • Hydrogenotrophic denitrification of drinking water using a hollow fibre membrane bioreactor

    ABSTRACTThe objective of this research was to investigate the performance of a hollow fibre membrane bioreactor (HFMB) for hydrogenotrophic denitrification of contaminated drinking water. In the HFMB, H2 flows through the lumen of the hydrophobic hollow fibres and diffuses to an attached H2 oxidizing biofilm. Nitrate in the contaminated water serves as an electron acceptor. A hydrogenotrophic ...

  • Performance of a Compost-Based Hybrid Bioreactor for the Treatment of Paint Spray Booth Emissions

    ABSTRACT Recently, application of vapor-phase bioreactors to the treatment of volatile organic compounds  (VOCs) from paint spray booths has drawn increased interest.  Contaminated air streams from paint spray booths are characterized by transient loading conditions and chemical mixtures consisting of both hydrophobic (e.g., xylene and toluene) and hydrophilic compounds (e.g., ketones).  The ...

  • Future Perspectives in Bioreactor Development

    The paper discusses conversion capacities of both anaerobic and aerobic wastewater treatment systems in relation to growth kinetics, hydrodynamics and biomass concentration. In the current modern anaerobic high-rate reactors the conversion potentials are optimally exploited. This is not yet true for aerobic systems since operation of aerobic systems under conditions of low biomass growth reduces ...

  • Mineral oil bio-degradation within a permeable pavement: long term observations

    ABSTRACTThe paper reports on the first 300 days of a research project conducted at Coventry University, which has focused on the ability of a permeable pavement, reservoir structure to retain and treat petroleum-derived pollutants through in situ microbial bio-degradation. The research has required the construction of a full-scale model permeable pavement in the laboratory, which has been ...
