Relations between extraction protocols for activated sludge extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and EPS complexation properties: Part I. Comparison of the efficiency of eight EPS extraction
Abstract The efficiency of eight extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) extraction methods was compared on two different activated sludges. Three chemical methods (EDTA, formaldehyde + NaOH,Expand

Biosorption properties of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) resulting from activated sludge according to their type: Soluble or bound
Abstract Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) are one of the main components of activated sludge. EPS can be found in two forms, soluble or bound depending on their localisation and/or their roleExpand

Environmental impact of two successive chemical treatments in a small shallow eutrophied lake: Part II. Case of copper sulfate.
The appearance of cyanobacteria ( > 10 colony per ml) was not prevented after alum treatment. In order to prevent cyanobacteria efflorescences in a small shallow polymictic lake (Courtille, France),Expand
