Using a continuous enrichment technique, a bacterial consortium capable of degrading 4-chlorophenol (4-CP) was obtained from the rhizosphere of Phragmites australis. A granular activated carbon (GAC) biofilm reactor was established using this consortium, and the degradation of 4-CP was investigated under continuous flow operation using a feed of 20–50 mg l… CONTINUE READING
