Odour II

Odour II


To develop odor treatment techniques that provide more efficient and viable solutions than conventional ones, and that allow to obtain more feasible odoriferous and environmental results in those industrial processes and water treatment.


Development and optimization of high efficiency technologies for odor removal:

• Design of a bioscrubber, odor photoreactor and nanoparticle reactor from the modification of a chemical wash deodorization system.
• Modification of an existing biofiltration system, to increase its efficiency and robustness through the use of novel materials and the combination of these.
