Biotechnological processes for air and off-gas treatment

Classical biological analytics has been used for many years for water and waste water monitoring. This includes the monitoring of oxygen demand in waste water or toxicity testing with living organisms. End-of-pipe technologies are still the most important application area for biotechnology in the environment. In waste-water treatment biotechnological processes are state-of-the-art. These are applied not only for metabolising carbon compounds, but also for the elimination of nitrogen, phosphorous and sulphur compounds as well as for organic pollutants such as solvents and pesticides. Biofilters and biowashers have been developed that use enzymes or microorganisms to degrade and eliminate pollutants and odours. Research in this area aims to identify microorganisms that are able to degrade several pollutants in parallel and under adverse conditions.
