2-Chlorophenol consumption and its effect on the nitrifying sludge.

The kinetic behavior of a nitrifying sludge exposed to 2-chlorophenol (2-CP) was evaluated in batch culture. The assays were performed using a stabilized nitrifying sludge. In control assays with (mg L(-1)): NH(4)(+)-N (100) and NaHCO(3)(-)-C (250), the substrates were consumed in 8h, the ammonium consumption efficiency was 99% and the NO(3)(-) yield higher… CONTINUE READING
