Population of Microorganisms That in the Aerobic-Anoxic Bioreactor Play a Role in Treatment of Industrial Wastewater

Article excerpt

Background: The aim of this study was to identify a domain microbial habitat in a sequential aerobic-anoxic bioreactor for the treatment of industrial wastewater.

Methods: The degradation of organic maters was evaluated using laboratory scale aerobic-anoxic up flow bioreactor (UFBR) with an alternatively aeration action in sequence. Bacteriological study and detection of domain bacteria in the aerobic-anoxic conditions were carried out.

Results: The aerobic-anoxic treatment process resulted in the 45-95% BOD and 75-95% COD removal. Bacterial habi- tat were found as biomass assessment followed by cultural and biochemical differentiation tests, which revealed 109- 1012CFU/g of flock forming in sludge built up, the majority of enumerated bacteria were facultative such as coli forms, micrococcaceae, Staphylococcus and Streptococci and absolutely anaerobe such as Clostridium. …
