	  abstract     = {In this research, a biofiltration process to remove
ammonia gas from gas stream using agricultural residue biofilter
medias is studied. The experiments were conducted in laboratoryscale
biofilter. The biofilter medias were a mixture of manure
fertilizer and bagasse at various ratios i.e., 1:3, 1:5 and 1:7. The
experiments were performed for a period of 40 days. The empty bed
retention time (EBRT) is 78s. The moisture content of biofilter media
was maintained at 45-60% using water. The results showed that the
agricultural residues (manure fertilizer and bagasse) are suitable as
biofilter media for ammonia gas removal in biofiltration process.
The maximum efficiency of ammonia gas removal is observed
from the 1:5 of manure fertilizer: bagasse ratio at 89.93%. The
biofiltration is more effective at low ammonia gas concentration. In
addition, the mixture ratio of biofilter media is not a significant factor
in biofiltration operation while the most significant factor for
biofiltration operation is the inlet ammonia gas concentration.},
