The growth of bacterium VS was found to be coupled to the dehalogenation of VC and cDCE, suggesting unique metabolic capabilities, and an important limitation of this cPCR assay was its inability to discriminate between active and inactive cells.

The vcrA gene identified here may be a useful molecular target for evaluating, predicting, and monitoring in situ reductive VC dehalogenation.
Competition for Hydrogen within a Chlorinated Solvent Dehalogenating Anaerobic Mixed Culture
Use of an appropriate hydrogen level is necessary to favor dehalogenation of chlorinated solvents, such as tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE), over other hydrogen using processes. This…
Anaerobic fluidized bed membrane bioreactor for wastewater treatment.
It was found that fouling can be controlled if membranes are placed directly in contact with the granular activated carbon (GAC) in an anaerobic fluidized bed bioreactor (AFMBR) used here for post-treatment of effluent from another an aerobic reactor treating dilute wastewater.
