Abstract

   This work presents the tools developed by the research group of Polytechnic University of Catalonia located in Manresa and its collaborators on the study of the bioprocesses for the treatment of gaseous and odorous flows, highlighting the use of microsensors for the biofilms characterization, the simulation of bioreactors hydrodynamic behavior to achieve optimal design or the use of non-conventional configurations, such as membrane reactor, to overcome the current limitations found in traditional bioprocesses. A high level monitoring of the membrane bioreactor performance for the treatment of volatile organic compounds, which can produce odour and environment problems, was evaluated during a period of 2 months. In order to know the limitations of the system, microsensors with a high special resolution were developed, which provide behaviour information inside of the biofilm. This information is useful to develop advanced hydrodynamic models to allow better knowledge and to optimize the biological processes for gases and odours treatment. These advanced analytical tools could be adapted easily to new applications and its potential use is still in process of development.
