Bacterial function and community structure in reactors treating biopolymers and surfactants at mesophilic and thermophilic temperatures


Microbial communities capable of degrading biopolymers and surfactants typically found in graywater were selected in continuous-flow bioreactors operated at 30, 44, 53, or 62°C. The effect of temperature upon microbial activity and community composition was determined. Microbial respiration of the organic components of the medium (including linear… (More)
