This is an air pollution application using bacteria. The overall goal of this study is to minimize water and energy utilization as part of emissions control at ethanol plant by studying the feasibility of biotrickling filters (BTF) as a green biological alternative. BTF utilization has the potential of water quantity reduction to 1/20 of that of the scrubber.


You will be assisting a masters student working on this project. Tasks include: operation and maintenance and measurements. If interested please contact me for an in-person meeting to discuss the project.
