A complex bioflocculant MBF917 was prepared by Rhizopus sp. M9 and M17 using potato starch wastewater (PSW) as nutrilite, and its flocculation characteristics of treating PSW were studied. Culture conditions of the two strains were optimized, and flocculating conditions of the bioflocculant for treating PSW were also investigated. The optimal and economical culture conditions were determined as COD of about 1600 mg/L, 0.3 g/L urea and 0.04 g/L potassium dihydrogen phosphate, with no need of… CONTINUE READING
