Biological Treatment of Pollutants - Gases and Odors (BTP-GO)

Despite the efforts and investments the air pollution continues being an environmental problem and the main menace for the public health. Nature is often capable of restoring, by its own means, the contamination of some substances within a certain range of concentrations, but often is unable to naturally restore the unbalances caused by human activity. On these occasions we must help the nature to maintain its equilibrium. The development of a sustainable society is possible only if we can eliminate the environmental aggression representing the emission of pollutants in gaseous effluents.



The research groups GENOCOV ( of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB)

and TRAGASOL of the Politechnical University of Catalonia (UPC) have joined efforts in recent years in the research of the biofiltration of different gaseous emissions in order to develop new treatment processes, optimize the existing ones, to develop methodologies, analytical techniques and bioreactors and to characterize gaseous emissions.
