Potential Production of CH3CL in an Instream Denitrifying Woodchip Bioreactor
Ville:New Hamburg, ON
École:Cameron Heights C.I.
Sommaire:Potential side effects of bioreactors used for nitrate removal include production of greenhouse gases and methyl mercury. Degradation of bioreactor materials by white-rot could also result in production of methyl chloride, known to deplete ozone. Microbial and chemical analysis determined that neither white-rot fungi nor methyl chloride were present in the bioreactor studied. It is unlikely this type of bioreactor contributes to ozone depletion.
