Reduction of perchlorate by an anaerobic enrichment culture

Abstract

A mixed bacterial culture capable of reducing perchlorate stoichiometrically to chloride under naerobic conditions was enriched from municipal digester sludge. The reduction of 10 mM perchlorate resulted in oxidation of the medium and cessation of perchlorate reduction. The activity was recovered on addition of a reducing agent. Addition of air to the… (More)
