Rhodococcus sp. P1 utilizes phenol as the sole carbon and energy source via the β-ketoadipate pathway. In batch cultivation, concentrations up to 2.8g · l-1 phenol were degraded. The highest values for the specific growth rate of 0.32 h-1 were obtained at concentrations near 0.25 g · l-1. At higher concentrations, substrate inhibition was observed, characterized by increases in lag phase and decreasing growth rates. A mathematical expression was proposed to fit the kinetic pattern of phenol… CONTINUE READING
