In this study, two laboratory-scale anaerobic batch reactors started up with different inoculum sludges and fed with the same synthetic wastewater were monitored in terms of performance and microbial community shift by denaturant gradient gel electrophoresis fingerprinting and subsequent cloning, sequencing analysis in order to reveal importance of initial quality of inoculum sludge for operation of anaerobic reactors. For this purpose, two different seed sludge were evaluated. In Reactor1… CONTINUE READING
