Energy Profiles of Activated Sludge Degradation of a Xenobiotic Compound

Abstract

Stable structure of xenobiotic requires a large amount of energy for the microorganisms to metabolize. In addition to the general hard-to-treat nature of a xenobiotic, the energy expense in breaking xenobiotic structure may add to the difficulty of xenobiotic degradation. This study was to determine the detail profiles of energy contents in activated sludge… (More)
