SELECTION OF A SUBSTRATUM FOR COMPOSING BIOFILM SYSTEM OF A TEXTILE-EFFLUENT DECOLORIZING BACTERIA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Some abundantly and cheaply available substrates were used to develop biofilms of textile-effluent decolourizing bacteria. These biofilm systems were compared for their decolourization efficiency in packed bed system. Biofilm systems using mineral material, sea-shells or nylon web as substratum decolourized effluent (100%) in 9-12 h without major release of free cells into the medium.
