A continuous flow bioreactor will be fabricated, optimized, and tested based upon genetically modified Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker’s yeast) displaying horseradish peroxidase (HRP). HPLC methods will be used for liquid phase quantification of phenolic and indolic odorants, and for CAFO manure lagoon and bioreactor performance optimization and evaluation. Effectiveness of the odor control and VOC remediation will be measured using GC/MS and thermal desorption tubes.
