Remove Volatile Organic Compounds and Hazardous Air Pollutants from vapor streams.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) such as alcohols, ethers, esters, amines, ketones, aromatics, aldehydes, and some alkanes can be reduced or eliminated from a vapor stream through the use of a biotrickling or biofilter. These noxious chemicals are biologically reduced to harmless compounds by the microorganisms growing on the system’s media, offering a green solution to a difficult problem. The metabolic degradation performed by the microorganisms typically result in formation or carbon dioxide and water and do not create additional NOx or SOx as do thermal oxidizer technologies. In addition, operating costs are very low compared to other treatment solutions.
