Abstract: The cleaning of the exhaust gases of a bioreactor containing volatile hydrocarbons in a bioreactor system with a closed gas circuit is described. The bioreactor system consisted of three different reactor types: a stirred tank which was filled with hydrocarbon-containing waste water to simulate the exhaust gases of a remediation process; a trickle-bed reactor for aerobic treatment of the exhaust gas from the stirred tank; and a photoreactor containing an algae culture which assimilated C q from the trickle-be…
