The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of Microthrix parvicella for long-chain fatty acids uptake under anaerobic, anoxic, and aerobic conditions as well as its ability to utilize volatile fatty acids and long-chain fatty acids under anoxic and aerobic conditions. According to the results, a hypothesis on the competition between floc-forming microorganisms and M. parvicella for long-chain fatty acids uptake under aerobic, anoxic, and anaerobic conditions was formulated… CONTINUE READING
