BIOFILTRATION AS AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR REDUCTION OF POLLUTANT EMISSIONS
The development of industry and municipal infrastructure is a cause of increased emissions of malodorous substances into the atmosphere. These substances have a negative impact on human health and the environment. To protect the natural environment and human health, innovative methods of reducing emissions to the atmosphere are sought. These methods should be part of sustainable development principles. The work was carried out to assess the effectiveness of biofiltration in the reduction of odorous gas concentrations based on the measurements of biofilter efficiency in a sewage treatment plant. A mathematical simulation of the pollutant emission range in the environment was made to verify its change resulting from the use of a biofilter.
