Biofiltration of PCE and TCE



Perchloroethylene, PCE and tetrachloroethylene, TCE are common soil pollutants associated with dry cleaning and other industries. Even low temperatures these volatile pollutants can leak into buildings and potentially cause health hazards. We are investigating the potential of biological filters to degrade these compounds from earth gas extracted from polluted sites. Our research includes reactor design laboratory experiments on controlled gas mixtures, reactor design and optimisation of degradation conditions. (Lars H. Pedersen, Niels T. Eriksen; Majbrith L.
