    • Abstract:
      Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are significant atmospheric pollutants that cause environmental and health risks. Waste gases polluted with multiple VOCs often need to be purified simultaneously in biofilters, which may lead to antagonistic, neutral, or synergistic effects on removal performance. Antagonism limits the application of biofilters to simultaneous treatment of multiple VOCs, while synergism has not yet been fully exploited. We review the interactions among multiple target pollutants and the changes in the bioavailability and biodegradability of substrates that are responsible for substrate interactions. Potential strategies for enhancing biofilter performance are then discussed. Finally, we propose further efforts to alleviate antagonism by enhancing bioavailability and biodegradability, and discuss possible challenges to take advantage of synergism.
