H2S Removal in a Photosynthetic Fed-Batch Reactor with Chlorobium thiosulfatophilum
A toxic sour gas, hydrogen sulfide could be biooxidized efficiently to elementary sulfur in fed-batch reactors by the Chlorobium thiosulfatophilum which improved the traditional desulfurization processes requiring much investment and operational costs and causing secondary pollutants like sulfur dioxide and sulfate.
