The BELAIR® biofilter utilizes micro-organisms immobilized on an inert packing material contained in a suitable vessel through which a humidifying medium is recirculated. As in the bio scrubber, the pollutants (H2S, VOC) are first transferred from the gas phase to the water phase, and then to the biofilm attached to the packing, where they are oxidized by the micro-organisms.
