INTRODUCTION This study investigated the effect of copper on chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal efficiency and on the properties (mainly settling and dewatering) and the composition of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) when 20 mg/L Cu(II) was continuously dosed to a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) inoculated with activated sludge. MATERIALS AND METHODS The results showed that the continuous addition of 20 mg/L Cu(II) seriously inhibited the removal of sodium benzoate (provided as a… CONTINUE READING
