Phenol, a common constituent in many industrial wastewaters is a major pollutant and has several adverse effects on the environment. The potential of various microorganisms to utilize phenol for their metabolic activity has been observed to be an effective means of remediating this toxic compound from the environment particularly wastewater. Five indigenous(More)
The dominant nitrifying bacterial communities and nitrification performance of two biological nutrient removal plants were evaluated. Fluorescent in situ hybridization was used to detect and quantify the dominant nitrifying bacteria and polymerase chain reaction; cloning and sequence analysis of 16S rRNA genes was done for phylogenetic analysis. Fluorescent(More)
A Kubotatrade mark submerged membrane bio-reactor was applied to treat wastewater from a sugar manufacturing industry. To achieve optimal results, fundamental and extended understanding of the microbiology is important. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was used to evaluate the microbial community present. The majority of cells visualized in the sludge(More)
The performance of a full-scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor treating brewery wastewater was investigated by microbial analysis and kinetic modelling. The microbial community present in the granular sludge was detected using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and further confirmed using polymerase chain reaction. A group of 16S rRNA(More)
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM) are the key techniques used to investigate bacterial community structure at wastewater treatment plants. An optimum nitrifying bacterial population is necessary for nitrification, which plays a significant ecological role in regulating the overall quality of water.(More)
