Tetrachloroethene (C2Cl4) dechlorination kinetics in upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors was determined after introducing de novo activities into the granular sludge. These activities were introduced by immobilizing Dehalospirillum multivorans in a test reactor containing unsterile granular sludge, and in a reference reactor, R1, containing sterile granular sludge. A second reference reactor, R2, contained only unsterile granular sludge and served as a control. The kinetic… CONTINUE READING
