About this book

The number-one environmental threat to public health, air pollution remains a pressing problem-made even more complicated by the massive quantity and diversity of air pollution sources.Biofiltration technology (using micro-organisms growing on porous media) is being recognized as one of the most advantageous means to convert pollutants to harmless products. Done properly, biofiltration works at a reasonable cost-utilizing inexpensive components, without requiring fuel or generating hazardous by-products.Firmly established in Europe, biofiltration techniques are being increasingly applied in North America: Biofiltration for Air Pollution Control offers the necessary knowledge to "do it right.


Introduction.- Mechanisms of Biofiltration.- Biofilter Media.- Controlling Factors and Operation of Biofilters.- Microbial Ecology of Biofiltration.- Modeling Biofiltration.- Design of Biofilters.- Biofilter Startup and Monitoring.- Application of Biofilters.- Appendix A: Symbols.- Appendix B: Selected Elimination Capacity Values.- Appendix C: Conversion Factors.- Appendix D: Absolute Humidity of Air Saturated With Water.- Appendix E: Approximate Conversion of Selected Currencies.
