Olive-mill wastewater (OMW) has a high organic and polyphenol content and is resistant to biodegradation. Its disposal leads to a major environmental pollution problem in the Mediterranean basin. The detoxification of OMW following inoculation with Azotobacter vinelandii (strain A) was performed for two successive 5-day-period cycles in an aerobic, biowheel-type reactor, under non-sterile conditions. The phytotoxicity of the processed product was reduced by over 90% at the end of both cycles… CONTINUE READING
