Evaluation of the bioremoval of Cr(VI) and TOC in biofilters under continuous operation using response surface methodology

Abstract

In the present study, the bioremoval of Cr(VI) and the removal of total organic carbon (TOC) were achieved with a system composed by an anaerobic filter and a submerged biofilter with intermittent aeration using a mixed culture of microorganisms originating from contaminated sludge. In the aforementioned biofilters, the concentrations of chromium, carbon… (More)
