Characterization and flocculation efficiency of a bioflocculant produced by a marine Halobacillus.

We reported earlier on the bioflocculant production potential of Halobacillus sp. Mvuyo, a marine bacteria isolated from Algoa Bay sediment samples. In this paper we report on the detailed characterization of the purified bioflocculant composed of polysaccharide and protein. The optimum dose of the purified bioflocculant for the clarification of 4 g l(-1… CONTINUE READING
