Biodegradability of Phenol , Resorcinol and 5-methylresorcinol as Single and Mixed Substrates by Activated Sludge

The aim of this study was to investigate aerobic biodegradability of phenol, resorcinol and 5-methylresorcinol and their different two-component mixtures using activated sludge sampled from the Kohtla-Järve wastewater treatment plant. The degradation behaviour of phenolic compounds was investigated by respirometry. Non-linear regression analysis was used… CONTINUE READING
