Biofiltration, Solid Scavengers, and Carbon Adsorption
In Part 1 of our wastewater treatment technology series, we examined the role of wet scrubber systems in the mitigation of hazardous fumes associated with hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). In this installment, we turn our attention to three additional vapor-phase wastewater treatment technologies.
In addition to wet-air-scrubbing, wastewater treatment plants today have access to a variety of methods for treating ventilation-air and/or biogas. These include biofiltration, solid scavengers and carbon adsorption.
These systems can be deployed in high odor locations like the headworks, wet wells and bio solids areas, but each has its own set of requirements and considerations that must be factored.
