Biodegradation kinetics of 4-nitrophenol (4NP) was investigated in a lab-scale sequencing batch reactor fed with the compound as the sole carbon source. The experimental results showed that complete 4NP removal can be easily achieved with acclimatized biomass, even if an inhibition kinetics is observed; furthermore, an improvement in the removal kinetics is obtained if the substrate concentration peak, reached in the reactor at the end of the filling time, is maintained to quite a low value… CONTINUE READING
