The microflora of a self-heating aerobic thermophilic sequencing batch reactor (AT-SBR) treating swine waste was investigated by a combination of culture and culture-independent techniques. The temperature increased quickly in the first hours of the treatment cycles and values up to 72°C were reached. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of the(More)
An anaerobic consortium degrading pentachlorophenol (PCP) by methanogenic fermentation was enriched from PCP-contaminated soils. In a semi-continuous reactor, PCP biodegradation was unstable and necessitated periodic additions of unacclimated anaerobic sludge waste to restore the activity. In continuous-flow reactors, PCP degradation activity was more(More)
Anaerobic biodegradation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) in a contaminated soil from a wood-treating industrial site was studied in soil slurry microcosms inoculated with a PCP-degrading methanogenic consortium. When the microcosms containing 10%–40% (w/v) soil were inoculated with the consortium, more than 90% of the PCP was removed in less than 30 days at 29(More)
