Many anthropogenic sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) originated from industrial activities can be toxic as well as deadly to humans and detrimental to the environment. Bio- filtration represents a cost effective and democratic technology that can be used for the control of biodegradable VOCs and offensive odour from air streams. Additionally, air bio-filtration can be used with soil vacuum extraction and air stripping of groundwater to treat VOCs extracted from those matrices during cleanup operation.
