Different alternatives exist for the removal of odours and other volatile compounds from waste gases. On one side, non-biological processes can be used (mainly absorption, adsorption, and oxidation processes) and, on the other side, bioprocesses can be used.

The present study focuses on biological processes and presents the most important characteristics of the main technologies available on the market for the treatment of odours and the removal of volatiles pollutants from waste gases.
