Biofilters employ rudimentary technology designed to remove pollutants and odors from air impacted by industrial and manufacturing processes. The method has been in use for decades.
BTEX is a well-known and heavily-regulated group of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from a wide variety of industrial facilities.
In the food and brewing industries, you can count on there being odors. And while some of the smells can be pleasant, foul smells can cause serious problems.
The emission of odorous air is a fact of life across all industries—from food & beverage to paper production and from oil & gas to pharmaceuticals.
Similarities between biotrickling filters and bioscrubbers abound, but the subtle difference between the two has major performance implications.
