Bioremediation of heavy metals in a synthetic wastewater using a rotating biological contactor.

Abstract

Immobilised microorganisms provide a potential system for the treatment of metal-contaminated waters. This study investigates the efficiency of a rotating biological contactor (RBC) in the treatment of waters contaminated with cadmium, copper and zinc in multiple sorption-desorption cycles. Each sorption cycle extended over a period of 12 weeks at an HRT of… (More)
