Treatment of gaseous emissions from tire manufacturing industry using lab-scale biofiltration pilot units

Abstract : Continuously seeking the improvement of environmental protection, the limitation of exhaust emissions is of significance for the tire manufacturing industry. The aim of this study is to assess the potential of biofiltration for the treatment of such gaseous emissions. This work highlights that biofiltration is able to remove both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds within a single pilot unit of biofiltration. Due to Ethanol/Alkanes ratios (95/5 and 80/20), high performance levels were observed for low EBRT (16 and 12 s). After twenty days of stable running, the dynamic of stratification patterns could be explained as a result of species coexistence mechanisms. While its impact on performance has not been observed under stable operating conditions, the use of an adsorbent support such as granular activated carbon (GAC) could be relevant to promote system stability in the face of further perturbations, such as transient regimes, that are problematic in full-scale industrial applications.
