Dynamic Analysis of Sulfur Dioxide Removal in Biotrickling Filter


Article Preview

Thiobacillus ferrooxidans is one of the main strains in the field of flue gas biological desulfurization. In the paper the removal of sulfur dioxide was studied in the biotrickling filter by the synergistic effect of the biofilm of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans and iron ion system. The Mass transfer and reaction process in the biotrickling filter were analysed and the relationship between sulfur dioxide concentration and time during the desulfurization was discussed. Then the dynamic equations of sulfur dioxide removal in biotrickling filter were established.
