A Conceptual Model Describing Macromolecule Degradation by Suspended Cultures and Biofilms

Abstract

Macromolecular (> 1,000 daltons) compounds such as proteins and polysaccharides can comprise a significant portion of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in wastewater, but limited information is available on how these compounds are degraded in suspended and fixed-film biological wastewater treatment systems. Bacteria cannot assimilate intact macromolecules but… (More)
