Possible causes of excess sludge reduction adding metabolic uncoupler, 3,3',4',5-tetrachlorosalicylanilide (TCS), in sequence batch reactors.

Abstract

Two parallel sequence batch reactors (SBRs) were operated, with and without TCS addition, to research the causes of sludge reduction by uncouplers. Three possible mechanisms of sludge reduction by TCS were studied: (1) occurrence of metabolic uncoupling, (2) consumption of more energy to resist the infection of TCS, (3) promotion of lysis-cryptic growth by… (More)
