This work presents the tools developed by the research group of Polytechnic University of Catalonia located in Manresa and its collaborators on the study of the bioprocesses for the treatment of gaseous and odorous flows.
Among others, it can be highlighted the use of microsensors for the biofilms characterization, the simulation of bioreactors hydrodynamic behavior to achieve optimal design or the use of non-conventional configurations, such as membrane reactor, to overcome the current limitations found in traditional bioprocesses.
