Fate and effects of triclosan in activated sludge.
Triclosan (TCS; 5-chloro-2-[2,4-dichloro-phenoxy]-phenol) is a widely used antimicrobial agent. To understand its fate during sewage treatment, the biodegradation and removal of TCS were determinedExpand

How adaptation and mass transfer control the biodegradation of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate by activated sludge
We use a nonsteady-state model to evaluate the effects of community adaptation and sorption kinetics on the fate of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) in batch experiments conducted with activatedExpand

Comparison of activated sludge microbial communities using biologTM microplates
Laboratory models of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) provide controlled systems for studying chemical biodegradability and removal as well as WWTP microbial ecology and engineering. In this study,Expand

Extant Biodegradation Testing With Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate in Laboratory and Field Activated Sludge Systems
Two 1-L porous pot (65 µ stainless steel mesh) reactors were fed synthetic wastewater with a COD of 200 mg/L including 2 mg/L linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS) to evaluate the influence ofExpand

Linear Alkybenzene Sulfonate And Alkyl SulfateBiodegradation In Laboratory And FieldActivated Sludge Systems
The fate and biodegradation of two xenobiotic compounds, linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) and alkyl sulfate (AS), were investigated in laboratory and field activated sludge systems. Two 1-L porousExpand
