In this study, the inhibitory effects and anaerobic biotransformation of acrylic acid in computer-controlled pH-stat completely stirred tank reactors (CSTRs) with two different cultures, namely unacclimated and acrylate-acclimated acetate-enriched Methanosarcina and homogenized (crushed) granular cultures, were investigated. The microbial acclimation, influent concentration, and loading rate of acrylic acid were studied in the experiments. The experimental results revealed that methanogenic… CONTINUE READING
