摘要: Butyl acetate and xylene mixtures are commonly encountered from the manufacture of semi-conductor or opto-electronic apparatuses. The release of these substances into the ambient air may have a negative effect on the air quality. This study attempts to employ a trickle-bed air biofilter for treating butyl acetate and xylene mixtures under different gas flow rates and influent concentrations. Almost complete VOC removal could be attained with influent carbon loadings of BA (butyl acetate) and X (xylene) below 40 and 15 g/m(3) h, respectively. As the influent carbon loadings of BA and X were increased up to 150 and 110 g/m(3) h, removal efficiencies higher than 80% were achieved. Therefore, the trickle-bed air biofilter (TBAB) appeared efficient in the control of emissions containing mixtures of butyl acetate and xylene with low to medium carbon loadings. The removal efficiencies of butyl acetate were higher than those of xylene, indicating that butyl acetate was the substrate preferred in the utilization of butyl acetate and xylene mixtures by the microorganisms. Carbon recoveries of 98-101% were achieved, demonstrating the accuracy of results. The carbon mass rate of the liquid effluent was approximately two to three orders of magnitude less than that of the CO(2) effluent, indicating that the dissolved VOCs and their derivatives in the leachate were present in a negligible amount in the reactor. Applicable operating conditions of the TBAB unit for treating BA and X mixtures were suggested.
