A rapid enrichment approach based on a pentachlorophenol (PCP) feeding strategy which linked the PCP loading rate to methane production was applied to an upflow anaerobic sludge bed reactor inoculated with anaerobic sludge. Due to this strategy, over a 140-day experimental period the PCP volumetric load increased from 2 to 65 mg L(R)(-1) day(-1) with a near zero effluent concentration of PCP. Dechlorination dynamics featured sequential appearance of 3,4,5-chlorophenol, 3,5-chloro- phenol, and 3… CONTINUE READING
