A combined process anaerobic/aerobic in a single reactor was studied, P-nitrophenol (PNP) was used as the model compound. During the anaerobic stage the target compound is modified in such a way that the intermediate product is more readily biodegradable by the aerobic phase. A pilot biofilter was used for the experiment. The biofilter was packed with a volcanic stone (puzolane) to serve as support to the microorganisms and it was inoculated with activated sludge. The microorganisms were… CONTINUE READING
