Acinetobacter has been found to be the major species responsible for mediating biological phosphate removal. The growth kinetics and phosphate uptake were investigated for an isolated Acinetobacter strain growing in a defined medium. The phosphate uptake is dependent on growth rate, temperature, and pH. Polyphosphate granules occurred in a balanced growth stage. The maximum phosphorus content in cells was 4.8% at the dilution rate of 12 day(-1). The specific phosphate uptake rate was found to… CONTINUE READING
