The influence of the initial substrate to microorganisms ratio (So/Xo) on the inhibition of the methane production caused by 4-chlorophenol, 4CP, was studied. The effect of the 4CP on glucose degradation was evaluated measuring the quantity of methane produced during the test. One part of the inoculum was used as it came from its origin and another was fed with ethanol in order to maintain its activity. The inhibition tests were carried out using the same initial concentration of glucose, three… CONTINUE READING
