A series of experiments was performed in an aerobic chemostat reactor using a multi-substrate system consisting of acetate, phenol, and 2,4-dichlorophenol (DCP). The phenolic compounds require initial oxygenation reactions, while acetate is oxidized without oxygenations. The biomass completely dechlorinated DCP and utilized all of the substrates simultaneously as electron donors and carbon sources. However, DCP removal was less than for phenol and depended on the solids retention time. A novel… CONTINUE READING
