The operating performance of a biotrickling filter with Lysinibacillus fusiformis for the removal of high-loading gaseous chlorobenzene.

Li ZX, Yang BR, Jin JX, Pu YC, Ding C - Biotechnol. Lett. (2014)

Bottom Line: Removal of gaseous chlorobenzene (CB) by a biotrickling filter (BTF) filled with modified ceramics and multi-surface hollow balls during gas-liquid mass transfer at the steady state was by microbial degradation rather than dissolution in the spray liquid or emission into the atmosphere.The BTF, loaded with Lysinibacillus fusiformis, performed well for purification of high-loading CB gas.The maximum CB gas inlet loading rate, 103 g m(-3) h(-1), CB elimination capacity, 97 g m(-3) h(-1), and CB removal efficiency, 97.7 %, were reached at a spray liquid flow rate of 27.6 ml min(-1), an initial CB concentration of up to 1,300 mg m(-3), and an empty bed retention time of more than 45 s.

ABSTRACT
Removal of gaseous chlorobenzene (CB) by a biotrickling filter (BTF) filled with modified ceramics and multi-surface hollow balls during gas-liquid mass transfer at the steady state was by microbial degradation rather than dissolution in the spray liquid or emission into the atmosphere. The BTF was flexible and resistant to the acid environment of the spray liquid, with the caveat that the spray liquid should be replaced once every 6-7 days. The BTF, loaded with Lysinibacillus fusiformis, performed well for purification of high-loading CB gas. The maximum CB gas inlet loading rate, 103 g m(-3) h(-1), CB elimination capacity, 97 g m(-3) h(-1), and CB removal efficiency, 97.7 %, were reached at a spray liquid flow rate of 27.6 ml min(-1), an initial CB concentration of up to 1,300 mg m(-3), and an empty bed retention time of more than 45 s.

Mentions: As CB was the sole carbon source in the BTF, Cin would play a key role in normal microbial growth and metabolism. When v was maintained at 30 ml min−1, the removal of CB was investigated at different Cin of 0.25, 0.4, and 0.6 m3 h−1 corresponding to EBRTs of 90, 56, and 37 s, respectively (Figs. 4, 5).Fig. 4
