Methyl Isobutyl and Methyl Ethyl Ketone Biodegradation in Biofilters


Journal Article (Chapter)

Microbiological waste gas treatment is a most promising new development in environmental biotechnology. Herein effective methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) vapour removal and effective methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) vapour removal from polluted air streams are demonstrated and various aspects of such treatment processes identified for subsequent investigation. Biofilters of the type employed provide an example of microbes functioning effectively in a non-conventional medium. © 1992, Elsevier B.V.
